Welcome to theAustralian Business Events Association
We represent the people and organisations of the $36 billion Australian business events industry and are united in our quest to make real and lasting impact for this dynamic sector.
The directive from the business events community was clear: they wanted a well-resourced consolidated association to be the voice of the industry.
84% of the business events sector were in favour of a new entity to represent the industry, and the Australian Business Events Association is the result.
We were formed through the unification of three existing and successful organisations; the Association of Australian Convention Bureaux (AACB), the Australian Convention Centres Group (ACCG), and the Exhibition & Events Association of Australasia Ltd (EEAA). Through the unanimous vote of their members, they each suspended their operations to create this new entity – officially starting 1 July 2023.
We invite you to become part of the Australian Business Events Association by applying for membership or partnership opportunities today. By doing so, you will be part of a recognised and dedicated community of like-minded businesses and peers.
We look forward to forging a successful future for our industry – together.
