Our member in Australia won a prestigious award for their hard work for last year!
Jeremy Ducklin’s team who is the Managing Director of Congress Rental Australia, made it possible for them to stand out innovating and providing solutions for their clients amidst such challenging times, hence they were nominated and won the MEA’s Specialist Services and Suppliers award.
Meetings and Events Australia is the Australian event industry’s largest professional organisation. As part of their mission to connect, educate, and organise the Australian events community, they host the annual MEA National Awards program.
The awards formally recognise exceptional achievements, creativity, and professionalism in the events space. This year, they celebrated the innovation and determination of event industry businesses in 2020. Applicants from across Australia were tasked with providing evidence across five key areas:
- Business planning and resources
- Challenges faced in 2020 and their responses
- Outcomes from their efforts
- Contribution to the events industry
- Commitment to sustainability
Representing the countless small businesses rocked by the pandemic, MEA recognised Congress Rental Australia‘s efforts in the simultaneous interpretation space during the national awards in its work as a Specialist Service and Supplier.
As described by MEA award host Nigel Collin, the national award for Specialist Services and Suppliers “recognises the many varied support services essential to each and every event and the successful delivery of that event.”
Jeremy going back to what made it happen pointed out: “…really with this I think I need to thank the team for providing the innovation and efforts that we could include in the submission. It’s so great to be recognised for our contribution, and in this very difficult year I would like to thank MEA’s contribution in lobbying government on behalf of the events industry.”
