Peter Jones to receive Lifetime Achievement Award, plus a must for anyone starting a new event

With the Event Awards and Symposium just two weeks away, there's still a chance to be there amongst the celebrations, learning and networking as the Australian events industry gathers on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland between 21-23 September.


Peter Jones to receive Lifetime Achievement Award

We're delighted to announce that Peter Jones, founder of Peter Jones Special Events, will be recognised at Event Awards 2016 for his contribution to the Australian events industry.

Aside from the 25 years of PJSE, which has seen Peter head up a team which has produced more than 1,200 events, he has made significant contributions to the industry at large, including as former Chairman of the Victoria Events Industry Council, former board member of Destination Melbourne, past President of the Melbourne chapter of the International Special Events Society, as a lecturer at various event management courses and as a judge of the Australian Event Awards. PJSE is also a member of the Victoria Tourism Industry Council.
