CEO Welcome

Brisbane and Queensland will be a fabulous host and destination for EVOLVE 2019!

We are so excited to be presenting this ‘new look’ industry event that will bring the whole industry together to learn, be informed and exchange ideas to grow businesses and knowledge.

Following an unforgettable Conference in 2018 hosted by the exceptional Adelaide events community, it is now Brisbane’s turn to host this dynamic industry event. There is so much that is new since MEA last held its conference in Brisbane back in 2011 – new hotels, new venues, new infrastructure and world class facilities with plenty more in the pipeline.

Brisbane is a vibrant, dynamic and stylish city, with unrivalled weather, a welcoming multi-cultural society and diverse cultural experiences. Delegates will enjoy Brisbane’s enticing dining, premier shopping precincts, provocative cultural experiences with plenty to explore and discover in the city and surrounds.

The local host committee has done an exceptional job on the social program. As always, the events will be fun, sassy and shaped to maximise networking. The events will provide opportunities for you to experience Brisbane’s new venues, local entertainment and sensational Queensland hospitality, food and wine.

The Conference will conclude with the event industry’s night of nights at the 2018 MEA Awards recognising and celebrating the highlights in events in the past twelve months.

This is THE event in Australia for the events industry and we invite you to join colleagues from all over Australia who make up this exciting industry sector to influence the debate issues that need addressing to grow our sector and advocate and promote the importance of events.
