Arinex owner and founder Roslyn McLeod has been presented with the Paul Flackett IMEX Academy Award at IMEX in Frankfurt.
The international award is given to for persons who have made “outstanding contributions” to the meetings industry. The award follows Roslyn’s recognition as a top 10 Inspirational Women by ICCA in November 2018.
For over 20 years Roslyn has imparted her knowledge and ideas at many sessions and seminars for IAPCO, ICCA and INCON in Europe, Asia and the Americas. As well as her knowledge sharing, she has long contributed to boards for ICCA, IAPCO, INCON, Meetings & Events Australia and others, providing leadership skills to effectively drive change and benefits for the business events industry.
“I am humbled to be recognised among fellow global industry colleagues and friends whom I admire and respect immensely,” she said. “Thank you to IMEX for continuing to provide such a quality platform in which to bring together world leaders in the events industry and thanks to our INCON Partnership who as true leaders generously collaborate and share.
“I pay tribute to Angelo, my husband, and David and Alison our children for their love and understanding when I was missing in action and for being a wonderful supportive family.”
The IMEX Academy Award comes after Roslyn was named an official advocate for the International Convention Centre Sydney.
“I have had the great pleasure of knowing and being a friend of Roslyn’s for close to thirty years through a number of roles and positions,” said Geoff Donaghy, CEO of ICC Sydney. “She is held in the highest possible regard in the industry, which is something I also share personally. We are delighted for Roslyn to be a part of our ICC Sydney advocates club.”
