Stephen Cox, Chief Revenue Officer at Cliftons Event Solutions, has been appointed president of the IACC Australia Asia Pacific Chapter for 2024.
Throughout 2023, Stephen will serve as President-Elect, shadowing the current (outgoing) president and ensuring continuity for member organisations.
In addition to Cox’s appointment, Cliftons is cementing its partnership further with IACC through the 2024 IACC Australia Asia Pacific Study Tour in February.
Attendees will spend the first day at the Asia Pacific Incentives and Meetings event before the IACC Copper Skillet Final at Cliftons Freshwater in Melbourne’s CBD.
Over the following two days, the study tour will encompass a range of venues across Melbourne and regional Victoria, with a strong focus on wine-related conference venues in regional locations. The event program and registration will be available in May.
“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to give back to the meeting and events industry through this appointment,” said Cox.
“For 2023, I’ll be working to ensure the 2024 IACC Australia Asia Pacific Study Tour delivers value for attendees and partnering closely with the existing leadership team for a smooth transition to the President role in 2024.
“It’s a huge honour to be appointed to the leadership of this organisation, and I look forward to connecting with more members during my tenure.”
IACC CEO Mark Cooper said the 2024 study tour is shaping up to be a stellar event.
“We’re delighted that Stephen is bringing his industry knowledge and enthusiasm to the role of IACC President in 2024 and look forward to delivering an exceptional experience for our members under his leadership,” Cooper said.
