The MEA Awards are the Australian event industry’s peak Awards program that has recognised excellence for more than 30 years.
Submitting an Award application helps MEA members to review business practices and revisit and reflect on past achievements. In addition, entering the Awards demonstrates to staff, stakeholders and clients that their organisation is committed to the pursuit of excellence.
