The Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia (EEAA) broadcast three events live in a hybrid format from the International Convention Centre, Sydney (ICC Sydney), 8 December.
The end-of-year programme focused on rebuilding and reconnecting the industry, with the EEAA Annual General Meeting, CEO Forum and Awards for Excellence being attended by more 150 industry representatives, in person and virtually.
Claudia Sagripanti, EEAA Chief Executive said: “The events were an important step for the industry, signifying the return of in-person events, as we announced our newly elected board members, undertook a high-level planning session with senior industry representatives and celebrated with the award winners for 2020.
“Commencing with the EEAA Annual General Meeting, we named the new EEAA Executive Committee who will be actively involved in implementing the Rebuild Strategy for the exhibitions and business events industry in 2021 and beyond, as well as the continued roll out of the Association’s marketing activity and programmes.
“Two new Members were elected to join the EEAA Board, including Libbie Ray, Director Connected Event Group and Elissa Duke from Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. This result brings greater gender balance to the EEAA Board, adding two new female representatives to the 13 person Executive Committee.”
