The collective voice of the events industry in Australia, Meetings & Events Australia (MEA), has announced the appointment of Peter McDonald as its new CEO.
MEA chair Nigel Collin commented: “The MEA Board is excited to have Peter join us and believe he will be a great asset to both MEA and our sector.”
McDonald, who has taken up his post with immediate effect, comes to the business with extensive experience in member industry peak bodies, events, and professional and tertiary education.
“I’m grateful to be given this opportunity and I look forward to working with MEA’s members and collaborating with our partners to underwrite the resurgence and collective success of the Australian events sector,” he said.
“As a strong advocate for education of an industry by the industry, I also look forward to delivering events-natured vocational learning and professional development programmes that students and industry practitioners alike can practically apply in the workplace,” McDonald added.
