IMEX 2007: Melbourne triumphs with AACB's IMEX 2007 Prize

( The Association of Australian Convention Bureaux (AACB) has awarded the 2007 IMEX Prize for Australian Bureaux staff to David McCarthy, a national account manager with Melbourne’s Convention + Visitors Bureau.

AACB Executive Director, Mike Cannon, said David impressed the judges with his record of success and his approach to the challenges that face bureaux leaders everyday. David’s problem-solving attitude and clear, professional work ethic also impressed the judges.

On winning the award, McCarthy said, “I am thrilled to have been chosen by the AACB to receive this prestigious award on behalf of Melbourne. I am very excited to be attending IMEX 2007 where I hope to gain invaluable insights into the meetings industry and the challenges that we are faced with, particularly from an international perspective.”

The IMEX Prize for Bureaux staff, which is co-sponsored by Qantas, is designed to foster career development and encourage excellence in the future leaders environment of Australia’s convention bureaux.

As winner of the IMEX Prize, David has been flown to Frankfurt by Qantas Airways where he will be participating in the IMEX Future Leaders Forum (18th and 19th April) and see the global trade show at first hand. He will also make a presentation to the assembled 150 Future Leader students and share his experiences of his Australian role, its challenges and his future aspirations.

Around 150 students are expected to attend the fifth Future Leaders Forum at IMEX today, most of them studying at European universities in Austria, France, Germany and the UK for degrees in meetings and events management, tourism or related business and administration studies.
