MIAA is delighted to announce our National Supporters for
2002-2003. Our national supporters deliver the most
prominent ongoing support for MIAA. Without the investment
made in MIAA by the national supporters, much of the
research, business advice and general lobbying work we do
would not be possible. This also applies to important benefits
such as accreditation, which continues to be heavily subsidised
by other MIAA activities and revenue from sponsorship. The
major Australian convention centres are prominent in the list of
national supporters, with American Express and QANTAS
adding to the exclusive group of major companies. MIAA
greatly appreciates their contributions and encourages
members to seek their services.
