Jeanette Stanton has been appointed events project manager for Business Events Industry Aotearoa (BEIA), New Zealand’s business events association, formerly known as CINZ (Conventions and Incentives New Zealand).

With 20 years of experience up her sleeves, Stanton is no newcomer to New Zealand’s tourism and trade industry, joining BEIA after six years serving as marketing and business events services manager with Auckland Convention Bureau. Before that, she was part of the CINZ team, organising key events such as the annual MEETINGS. The 2021 edition is set for 2-3 June at the ASB Showgrounds.

“I am thrilled Jen is returning to the BEIA team, staying in an industry she clearly loves. With a focus on MEETINGS 2021, and other important projects designed to support members and grow our industry, Jen will find her experience and collaborative approach highly valued," said BEIA chief executive, Lisa Hopkins.

Hopkins also acknowledged Stanton's passion in "growing the profile of the New Zealand business events industry, and [how] she takes particular pride in collaboration, building relationships and partnerships".

Stanton will begin her new role at BEIA on 15 February, 2021.
