A number of industry professionals were re-elected to the board at the AGM. These included:

  • TRO chief executive Rob Allen

Oxford International managing director John Walker stepped down from the Eventia board but will continue his involvement with the organisation's university-based education initiative.

Taylor said widening membership to include more production companies and agencies, grow corporate and association members were among Eventia's goals for this year.

It also plans to offer more networking and education opportunities, and provide advice on legislation including TOMS were among the association's goals, said Taylor.
