The MFAA Convention is upon us again, which means brokers will be descending upon Adelaide in droves for networking, inspiring speakers, fine food, drinks, drinks and more drinks. If you haven’t signed up for the conference yet, Insider has some added motivation for you. Last year’s convention was recently lauded as the Best Association or Government Meeting at the NSW Meetings and Events Industry Awards, and the MFAA reckons it’s a good shot for the National MEA Awards as well. The award was chosen based on a submission outlining the service the conference provided to members. The MFAA said the submission used case studies to highlight the organisation’s role "in successfully helping members reach their professional objectives through relevant education and development programs". Insider was in attendance last year, and it was certainly an event not to be missed. At least he thinks it was. Unfortunately, following the FirstMac party, Insider’s recollection of the event was a little, shall we say, hazy. He plans to take it a bit easier at this year’s convention. Then again, that’s what he said last year.
