Australia Honours Event Industry Leader, Peter Jones

February 1, 2018 Accolades No Comments Email Email

The Australia Day Honours this year acknowledged the great contribution of our friend and colleague Peter Jones.

Peter has been an active member and supporter of Meetings & Events Australia since 1997 as the principal of Peter Jones Special Events.  Peter is an inspirational leader who volunteers his time, resources and energy not only to our industry, but to a number of charities – helping raise funds for organisations such as the Kids Help Line.

Robyn Johnson, MEA chief executive today congratulated Peter on his well-deserved award. “Peter has been a very valuable contributor in the development and shaping of this industry. Over many years he’s offered his time and knowledge, presenting many of MEA’s educational and professional development programs.  Peter has served on numerous committees and special interest groups that have been instrumental in raising the standards of the events industry, not only in Australia, but internationally.”

Peter is highly regarded for his skills in delivering exceptional events that have helped build Australia’s reputation for its professionalism and creativity in the event sector.  He has paved the way for many Australians who are now delivering events around the world.

Peter’s company has created events for many of the top corporate businesses in Australia and has produced opening ceremonies for sporting and international events and government community and gala events.

The events Peter has produced and managed are too numerous to mention, however some of his signature events include the Centenary of Federation, VIC Australia Day Celebrations  and the Ceremony for the Return of the Olympic Flame to the MCG.

In 2012 Peter received the Meetings & Events Australia’s Outstanding Achievement Award.

MEA congratulates Peter and thanks him for his support.
