The youngest newsreader in Australian history to headline The Business of Events

While all of our female presenters at The Business of Events 2020 are from Earth (we think!), they do have some out-of-this-world experience to pass on.

“With International Women's Day coming up this Sunday 8th March, we thought it was a great opportunity to celebrate the depth of knowledge among our female cohort at The Business of Events 2020,” said Anne-Marie Mina, Marketing Manager at organiser Exhibitions & Trade Fairs (ETF).

“Leading our star female line-up to kick off the day is MC Tina Altieri. For over 30 year’s Tina’s been one of the most prominent figures in the world of media. Holding the title as the youngest television newsreader in Australia, at just 19 years of age, the veteran presenter and reporter knows how to craft and deliver impactful messages. If your events are a communication vehicle for your brand’s messages, you can’t miss hearing from Tina.”

Beverley Williamson, GM of Business Development and Bids at the Melbourne Convention Bureau, is the next powerhouse speaker. Beverly will focus on what your bids are missing and share examples of successful bids led by the Bureau. Miss Mina said, “This is highly fortunate timing because Beverly’s team has just secured three major international conferences, so she’ll be able to talk about those and give insights into working with all levels of government, local partners and industry to showcase your company’s strengths and capability to deliver events.”

Heading up Events and Sponsorship at Coles Supermarkets is Carmel Horvath. ETF’s Anne-Marie Mina says, “Carmel has worked with Coles for nearly four decades, with more than half in her current position. Her knowledge and experience across the events, marketing and PR fields in a large and leading brand like Coles will be worth hearing.”

And before any of that magic takes place, The Business of Events 2020 day truly begins with breakfast, when globally renowned entrepreneur Lisa Messenger, CEO of Collective Hub, will lead an information-packed brekkie session, talking about the power of community and the flow-on effect for brands and their bottom line.

ETF’s Anne-Marie Mina says, “Lisa has amassed a community of over 800,000 social and digital followers, so the learnings here for attendees, in an intimate and limited-numbers session, are just fantastic.

“There are only a few spots left for the breakfast session, so please be quick. Tickets are also nearly sold out for the entire day. The Business of Events 2020 has so many leading thinkers and do-ers in the world of events as part of the program and for this many superstars to come together for one-day, makes this conference such a rare learning opportunity.”

The Business of Events 2020 is on Thursday 19th March 2020, at Sydney’s Luna Park. An intimate breakfast, “The Power of Community and The Flow-On Effect for Brand and Bottom Line” will run from 7-8:30am before the full-day main conference.
