Why should I become a member of the Australian Business Events Association?

Ultimately, everything the association does is designed for member prosperity.

The Australian Business Events Association will work for our members and the industry at large via the following overarching strategies:


Whilst the Australian Business Events Association has a national focus, it will work across both Federal and State levels. State focused Advocacy is core to the work and is linked to the need for bid support funds and necessary infrastructure. Discover our State and Territory Chapters.

Research and Policy

We will play a key role in addressing the shortage of research and underpinning policy development related to business events. A priority is to demonstrate to government and key stakeholders the value of the sector and to monitor and enhance the performance of the industry.

Industry Development

We will focus on enticing more people to join our industry, as well as the need to implement a model that encourages continual improvement of the businesses and the workforce.

Members Services

This includes core functions of networking and information sharing at both the State / Terriority and national levels, working to build community, and links with local industries.

Promotion of Industry & Association

This will focus on talent acquisition, and the promotion of the industry to all stakeholders through communication campaigns.

Political Traction

We will work to secure strong relationships with key state and federal ministers and industry leaders in and out of times of crisis. This is a key element and will underpin our long-term advocacy efforts.
