Simon Shaw – Australian Events Academy

Simon’s passion is the Visitor Economy and how it impacts people, businesses and communities. The Visitor Economy is the life blood of many industry sectors with tourism, events, education, investment and economic development at its core.

As the Program Director for the Australian Events Academy , Simon’s key project has been to develop and test a Diploma of events program that will meet the requirements of our industry. This new concept has recently launched and his session at the MEA conference is based on the first subject of this new and improved Diploma – ‘Where Do Events Come From?’
