AV company Scene Change will give four lucky Gen Ys a fully paid trip to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for the 2014 MEA conference.
Worth $2000 each, the scholarship covers flights, accommodation, registration and transfers to the conference that runs May 14-17.
Scene Change co-founder Ian Whitworth said, “Scene Change wants to encourage new voices, strong opinions and youthful energy in the meetings industry. We get annoyed by lazy Gen Y stereotyping, so we’ve designed the FlyMEA Scholarship to counter that.”
Scholarship applicants have to write 100 words or less on the subject of ‘If I Ruled The Meetings Industry’ and post it on the Scene Change Facebook page.
Whitworth said “We’re looking for fresh, positive ideas on how to make this industry work for the audiences of tomorrow. If it’s a great idea, you should be able to fit it into 100 words.”
The winner will be judged purely on the quality of the idea. Entries will be judged by a panel of three industry experts.
The four winners will be selected from Scene Change’s operating states – New South Wales, Victoria, Adelaide and Tasmania – and will stay at the Chorus Hotel in Kuala Lumpur with 12 other YMEA (Young MEA) members. The scholarship also includes access to the YMEA Forum, which is normally a $195 registration.
MEA CEO Linda Gaunt said, “This is such a generous opportunity and a great initiative for our YMEAs, and I cannot wait to hear about the ideas.”
Entries close on April 18th, with winners announced on April 22nd.
