The local events industry in Australia is looking to a brighter future thanks to the injection of much-needed NSW Government funds to the Australian Events Academy, the training arm of Meetings & Events Australia (MEA). The financial assistance follows ongoing lobbying from MEA over concerns the industry was facing a skills shortage. The Australian Events Academy is a registered training organisation dedicated to the education and training of students for the events industry – by the events industry. In lobbying, MEA chief executive Linda Gaunt said the events industry needed to train more people to improve the industry’s overall competitiveness on the domestic and international stage.  

Linda Gaunt said; “As an industry body and registered training organisation we value this (funding) very much. We also value the ongoing commitment of our industry supporters and we are pleased to be able to repay them with the opportunity for invaluable education.”
