Registrations open for Evolve 2022


Registrations are open for Meetings & Events Australia’s annual conference (MEA) Evolve 2022, which is taking pace on June 29-30 at the Sofitel Melbourne On Collins.

Evolve 2022 will feature a one-day conference bookended by a welcome function the previous evening and a networking function after completion of the education program.

The education program will include a blend of plenary sessions and breakout streams across three pillars – Building Confidence, Best Practice and Future Leaders.

Headlining the speaker list is former Disney Head of Innovation Duncan Wardle who will speak to the topic of ‘Think Different – The Disney Way!’, while Holly Ransom will lead the event as MC.

“Evolve 2022 will refresh everyone’s minds about the value of our national community after a 3-year hiatus of coming together face-to-face,” said MEA CEO Peter McDonald.

“The event will offer opportunities in parallel for professional development, business development, and reaffirmation or creation of relationships.”

Evolve 2022 is supported by the City of Melbourne and Melbourne Convention Bureau (MCB).

“It’s time to reconnect and engage at business events, get the energy and magic of face-to-face interactions back again,” said Julia Swanson, MCB’s CEO.

City of Melbourne Lord Mayor Sally Capp said Melbourne is open for business.

“We are totally committed to bringing back the buzz to our city and supporting local jobs,” she said.
