EEAA will bring the exhibition community together for the Annual General Meeting of the Association and will also be holding its Leaders Forum with senior industry leaders and stakeholders.

New Chief Executive of the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) James Pearson will share the EEAA stage with Jonathan O’Dea, Parliamentary Secretary, Trade and Investment - Major Events and Tourism; Theo Psychogios, Partner, Deloitte Access Economics; and Paul Beeson, Chief Executive Officer, Perth Convention Bureau.

Other presenters will include Craig Sheridan, retired Commissioned Police Officer, NSW Police Force; Michael Park, Partner, Norton Rose Fulbright Australia; Penny Burke, Director, Essence Communications; and Gillian Minervini, Director, gill minervini creative.

The EEAA’s Global Exhibitions Day program of events is supported by key members of the association – International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney); Australian Technology Park Sydney; Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre; Food & Desire; Eventbrite; FabFrame; Agility Fairs and Events; AV24/7; and Quest Apartment Hotels have all backed the EEAA in delivering its inaugural exhibition day program.

DiMascio said the EEAA Leaders Forum will focus on identifying new business opportunities in exhibitions by understanding the 2016 Federal election landscape and what this means for business, and highlighting new demographic growth and infrastructure corridors within Australia.

It will cover the current security climate - including cyber risk, incident preparation and response; and technology in events - getting the balance right between human interaction and technology driven solutions.

It will also look at the power of human interaction in converting sales, and the use of curation in developing successful shows – specifically, what can the exhibition industry learn from other events, such as music festivals and major public events?
