While last year's MFAA conference may be a blur to many bleary-eyed participants who hung around a bit too long at the FirstMac party, it's drawn the attention of industry awards honouring big events.
The organisation's 2011 National Convention has been handed the NSW award for Best Association or Government Meeting at the NSW Meetings and Events Industry Awards, and the MFAA said it is a "strong contender" for the National MEA Awards.
"We are delighted to win the NSW Association or Government Meeting of the Year Award, and are pleased to see that the 2011 Convention was a great success and high value experience for our members," MFAA events and sponsorship head Paula Kennerson said.
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 organisations role "in successfully helping members reach their professional objectives through relevant education and development programs".
