The Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia (EEAA) is targeting the under-35s with the new program which offers an opportunity to network, brainstorm ideas and have a say in the issues facing the industry.
EEAA General Manager Joyce DiMascio said the program had been designed to encourage young people to get involved with their professional association. “This will be the inaugural Young Stars meeting where our young members set the agenda for the Program,” said Ms DiMascio. “It’s a chance for them to be more active within the Association and meet others who share their passion for the industry.
“A Young Stars working party will be established at this event, so those who want to have a say need to be there to have their voice heard.”
Former EEAA Board Member and CEO of Info Salons Group, Jo-Anne Kellaway is supporting the set-up of the new Program. Ms Kellaway has been a strong advocate for promoting leadership development in her company.
The discussion topic for the July 12 event will be Managing Your Personal Brand. “This is a fascinating subject for those who operate in a very visible social world,” said Ms DiMascio. “We’ll be looking at what defines the way people see you and how this can be affected by the things you say and do.”
“Our young members are ambassadors for the exhibition and events industry. Each day they represent their companies in interactions with clients and suppliers so it is only fitting that EEAA should want to engage them more in the workings of the association.
“Our goal is to encourage our younger members to be involved on a variety of levels in the work of the association so we are very pleased to kick off the first event.”
New business manager at Luna Park, Brett Towers, is lending his support to the program by hosting the Young Stars inaugural event.
