MEA launches new accreditation program

Meetings & Events Australia has launched its new accreditation program designed to recognise events industry practitioners who have reached the highest levels of professionalism in event management.

It sets a new benchmark for individual recognition that is based on both quantitative and qualitative assessments of career achievements, work history, continuing skills development, and education along with the applicant’s contribution to the events industry.

“MEA’s individual accreditation program has undergone a long overdue review,” said MEA CEO Robyn Johnson.

“The new program acknowledges practical experience, industry knowledge and qualifications in event management. It acknowledges event professionals who are committed to continued learning and improvement of their skills and knowledge. Having the AEP (Accredited Event Professional) post-nominal will be the highest accolade in the Australian events community and will be highly prized”.
