Decision to postpone Evolve 2020 not taken ‘lightly’

Meetings and Events Australia’s (MEA) annual flagship event Evolve 2020 and its State and Territory Awards will be postponed until further notice following the ban on all “non-essential’’ gatherings of more than 100 people.

MEA said it is working with venues to determine potential new dates for each of the State and Territory Awards and for the three-day conference.

“This decision has not been made lightly but our first priority is the health and safety of all event attendees,” said Robyn Johnson, CEO of MEA.

“These important industry events are postponed and the new dates will be confirmed over the next few weeks. On behalf of the MEA Board and team, we thank all attendees, partners, exhibitors, speakers and suppliers for their patience and understanding of this decision as we work through next steps.

“We are fully committed to delivering valuable events to the industry and we will continue to deliver relevant webinars during these difficult times to assist the members in managing the impact COVID-19 is having on their businesses.”
