Darwin Gets 2013 MEA Conference

AN39-1-news-DarwinThe highlight for the Darwin contingent at last week's MEA conference was its success in winning the bid to host the prestigious 2013 national conference of the peak national industry body, Meetings and Events Australia.

Malu Barrios, general manager of the Darwin Convention Centre said the MEA win was a considerable achievement for Darwin that previously hosted the event in 1997 but is a truly memorable first for the Darwin Convention Centre and will make an exciting highlight in what will be the centre's fifth year.

"The event will not only bring an estimated 600 delegates to Darwin but will also provide the ideal opportunity to focus the attention of the industry and its media on the scope and flexibility of Darwin as a unique business events destination," said Ms Barrios.
