Newcomers to the meetings industry will soak up the experience and knowledge of senior business leaders at a forum being held in Melbourne prior to the Asia Pacific Incentives and Meetings Expo (AIME).

The International Congress and Conventions Association’s (ICCA) Forum for Young Professionals, now in its 12th year, will provide new employees in the sector and who are aged under 30 with career advice through interviews, case studies and networking.

The 2012 program, Growth Through innovation, also features addresses by senior industry figures with ICCA president Arnaldo Nardone this year’s guest speaker.

“This unique ICCA forum is aimed at young professionals or newcomers who are keen to develop their own careers in the meetings industry,” forum manager Elizabeth Rich said. “The intensive two-day program allows newcomers to hear from some of the best practitioners in the business on the latest global trends , work with each other to solve specific challenges and develop a valuable new network of contacts around Australia and Asia.”

The event takes place at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on February 19 and 20 and is limited to 30 participants. Applications close on February 1.
