EAs contribution to $30.2bill Meetings industry to be recognised

Of the $30.2billion spent on business events in Australia most comes from corporate events, which personal assistants organise more of than any other professional group. Whilst recent independent research has shown you to have average travel & meetings budgets of $394,000, very little is known about you by the meetings industry because you sit outside of it.

Two of the peak professional bodies for the meetings and events industry, the Association of Australian Convention Bureaux (AACB and Meetings & Events Australia (MEA), have partnered with Executive PA Media to find out more about your needs when organising and booking corporate events. To our knowledge this is the first research for the meetings industry, to exclusively ask personal assistants for their opinion, thoughts and feed-back.

The findings will be announced on the 30th April at the MEA annual conference “MEA Reboot” and will be used to help the meetings industry better serve personal assistants when they organise events.

Executive PA Media will also have a panel of PA corporate event buyers at the conference for delegates to talk with the EAs about the survey and their own experiences in dealing with the meetings industry

A copy of the survey will made available after the 30th April at www.executivepa.com.au
