New events project manager appointed at Business Events Industry Aotearoa

Business Events Industry Aotearoa (BEIA) has announced the appointment of Jeanette Stanton as events project manager.

Stanton will rejoin New Zealand’s industry association on 15 February, following six years as marketing and business events services manager at Auckland Convention Bureau.

Previously, Stanton was instrumental in developing and managing key events such as MEETINGS and the industry annual conference as part of the BEIA team (then known as Conventions & Incentives New Zealand).

BEIA chief executive Lisa Hopkins said not only is Stanton an experienced event manager, she also brings great knowledge in business-to-business marketing and membership management, with a 20-year industry career behind her.

“Jen has a real passion for growing the profile of the New Zealand business events industry, and she takes particular pride in collaboration, building relationships and partnerships,” Hopkins said.

“I am thrilled Jen is returning to the BEIA team, staying in an industry she clearly loves.

“With a focus on MEETINGS 2021, and other important projects designed to support members and grow our industry, Jen will find her experience and collaborative approach highly valued.”
