I was so proud to end the year so stunningly. At the Conference we also welcomed our new Platinum Partner, Airbnb, and newest Members Event-Crew Australia and Unimet Security.Our new website www.eeaa.com.au is now up and reflects the vitality, diversity and importance of the events industry.

In particular, please ensure the events that you run or that your venue hosts are listed in the calendar.
