The Meetings Industry Association of Australia changed its name on March 1 to Meetings & Events Australia. The organization, which markets the country to meetings and events groups, said the change would "broaden its appeal." In addition, the new body also announced a "memorandum of understanding" with its New Zealand counterpart, Conventions & Incentives New Zealand, to share and foster "professional development, accreditation and industry awards already on offer to MEA members in Australia."
