Event industry stalwart Sally Brown has been honoured with the EventsAIR 2019 Lifetime Achievement Award at the recent EventsAIR Rise User Conference.
Brown worked at the University of Queensland (UQ) Conference Department before setting up her own event management business in 1998 which she ran for over 20 years delivering over 110 conferences, many with either an environmental or nature focus. She has recently retired from the meetings industry
“Every meeting planner knows what it takes to be a great meeting planner,” said Trevor Gardiner, CEO at EventsAIR.
“You need to be calm, smart, have high attention to detail, manage pressure and deliver great events. To do this constantly for two to three years is admirable. To do this for five to 10 years shows determination and passion. To dedicate over 30 years to continually organise and execute events is awe inspiring.”
