The economic impact of events is well recognised. However, the events industry is notoriously difficult due to lack of innovation and education infrastructure. Formal event industry education was only introduced in the nineties. The Australian events industry is particularly disadvantaged when dealing with international markets due to our size, geographic location and population.
We can convert our disadvantage into an opportunity if we adopt and invest in innovation across the broader event industry ecosystem.
