Member of the Legislative Council and Blue Mountains resident Shayne Mallard MP announced that Maddie Dean from Leura is the successful recipient of a scholarship in a Diploma of Event Management, funded by the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.

Mr Mallard said the scholarship program is part of the NSW Government’s partnership with Australia’s peak industry body for business events, Meetings & Events Australia (MEA), which aims to upskill and create more job opportunities for rural and regional NSW communities.

“I am delighted to announce that Maddie is one of 18 recipients who will benefit from a Diploma of Event Management, thanks to the support from the NSW Government.

“Maddie will be connected to an online community of students, providing a great opportunity for networking and learning more about the development and delivery of events from fellow peers.

“The Blue Mountains is a favourite destination for tourism and conferences. Regional conferencing is a major employer in the Blue Mountains and offers great career paths for local employment.

“I’m sure that Maddie Dean will use her scholarship to add value to her career and to the regional conferencing economy.”

NSW Minister for Tourism and Major Events Adam Marshall said almost 80 applications were received by Destination NSW since the program opened in February 2018.

“Due to the large volume of high-quality applications, we are offering three Diploma of Event Management scholarships for each of our Destination Networks, which is 12 more than we originally intended,” Mr Marshall said.

“This increase means we are committing an extra $78,000 to give more people across rural and regional areas better access to the tools and skills needed to kick start their career in an industry that is a key contributor to the State’s economy.

“It’s clear that people across rural and regional NSW are looking for extra support to expand and develop their skills in event management, and the MEA scholarship program will help them do this while delivering event growth in their local area.

“I congratulate the 18 scholarship recipients who are already making valuable contributions to their local communities and wish them every success as they kick-off their diploma studies and continue their career journeys in the events sector.”

The 18 recipients were selected by a panel which included representatives from Destination NSW, MEA and the six Destination Networks.
