EEAA TARGETS MELBOURNE – YOUNG STARS TO HEAR FROM KATE SMITH, WALDRONSMITH MANAGING DIRECTOR

AND EEAA TO ADDRESS INDUSTRY ISSUES ON COPYRIGHT AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

 

Managing Director and Founding Director of WALDRONSMITH Management, Kate Smith, will lead the Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia’s (EEAA) Young Stars in a mentoring dinner next week at Melbourne Showgrounds.

Kate offers substantial knowledge and expertise in the strategic planning and delivery of international and national conferences throughout Australia. Many of her events include an exhibition component. She has an active and ongoing commitment to the business events industry and presents regularly at various industry events and forums.

Kate is a past Council Member of the Business Events Council of Australia and valued contributor to the industry.

“Kate has an illustrious career in the events industry and we are delighted that she can share her experiences and knowledge with us,” said EEAA Chief Executive, Joyce DiMascio.

The Young Stars & Leaders Table follows a EEAA special educational forum with top Clayton Utz lawyers on Copyright and Intellectual Property – an industry issue that has been highlighted to EEAA.

“Technology enables design to be easily replicated – whether it is creative look and feel, stand building or indeed any kind of product or service delivery.

“We have arranged leading Clayton Utz lawyers, Partner Chris McLeod and Senior Lawyer James Neil, to take our members through what they can do to protect their business offerings and products.”

Ms DiMascio said that both events were supported by host venue and Association Partner, Melbourne Showgrounds.

Yvonne von Hartel, Founding Principal of peckvonhartel – the award-winning national practice specialising in the delivery of architecture, interior design, planning, and project facilitation services – may also attend the event as a guest leader.

Ms DiMascio said EEAA is focussed on professional development of younger staff and the Association is pleased to offer these mentoring opportunities to our industry’s Young Stars.

The Young Stars & Leaders Table is open to members and non-members of EEAA.
