Business Events News - - Front Page -

MEET­INGS & Events Aus­tralia (MEA) has re­leased its Aus­tralian Work­place Skills Sur­vey for the Events In­dus­try Sec­tor, which has re­vealed op­por­tu­ni­ties for growth in the sec­tor, de­spite 64% of those sur­veyed say­ing they need more staff.

Mid-sized or­gan­i­sa­tions (21-50 staff) were most aware of the short­age of skilled staff.

MEA chief ex­ec­u­tive Robyn John­son said it was clear many event firms were find­ing it dif­fi­cult to fill vacancies & re­tain staff.

John­son added the MEA would cam­paign for the govern­ment to in­vest in new train­ing for the events in­dus­try.

The MEA will also ex­pand its pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment pro­gram to ad­dress the short­ages found in the sur­vey.
