Business Events News - - News -

MEM­BERS of the Busi­ness Events Coun­cil of Aus­tralia (BECA), launched a pre-elec­tion cam­paign at Par­lia­ment House in Can­berra last week calling on Mem­bers of Par­lia­ment to sup­port the sec­tor.

Busi­ness events spe­cial­ists met with 12 key MPs to push for a strong busi­ness events pol­icy and ad­di­tional fund­ing through Tourism Aus­tralia.

“Whilst Aus­tralia had a strong rep­u­ta­tion host­ing busi­ness events, our in­ter­na­tional com­pet­i­tive­ness is be­ing com­pro­mised by mar­kets in Asia, and we need to act now to curb the im­pact,” said Chair­man of BECA Matt Hingerty.
