Meetings & Events Australia (MEA) has appointed Peter McDonald as its new CEO.
“The MEA Board are excited to have Peter join us and believe he will be a great asset to both MEA and our sector,” said MEA Chair Nigel Collin.
”Peter comes to the business with extensive experience in member industry peak bodies, events, and professional and tertiary education.”
McDonald said he looked forward to working with MEA’s members and collaborating with MEA’s partners to underwrite the resurgence of the Australian events sector.
“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 programs that students and industry practitioners alike can practically apply in the workplace,” he said.
