SongDivision recently had the honour of being exclusive entertainment sponsors at the Meetings & Events Australia (MEA) 2015 National Conference on Hamilton Island. Held annually for over 400 meetings and events organisers and suppliers, MEA were looking for a unique, interactive and, of course, highly entertaining music program that fit within the themes and key messages of 'Right Here, Right Now'.


SongDivision proposed and delivered an all encompassing program, spread over all 3 days of the conference. Day 1 saw SongDivision Creative Director, Sam McNeill, host the MEA First Timers Session, before co-facilitating the YMEA Forum. That evening, SongDivision Sound System (made up of a DJ & 5-piece band) kicked the party into overdrive at Club MEA.

On Day 2, to fit within the conference theme, SongDivision (with help from industry superstar Rob Vass from TurningPoint Solutions), created and presented a fascinating and engaging plenary called 'Creating Unique Moments'. This part interview with Lionel Cole (The Voice, Mariah Carey, John Legend), part interactive conversation, facilitated by Sam McNeill with a live band onstage, resulted in a hugely insightful, emotional and unforgettable experience.

It wouldn't be a successful MEA Conference without an amazing closing night Gala Awards Dinner, and this year's did not disappoint! Sam McNeill took on Entertainment Director duties for the 4th year in a row for the 'Mad Men & Mad Women' inspired event. SongDivision put together an 8-piece house band, providing background music & 60's inspired live stings for award winners and presenters. Feature performances came from Lionel Cole (who sang an unbelievable rendition of his Uncle Nat King Cole's hit 'Unforgettable') Nat Conway, and SongDivision's Entertainment Director, Christo Alexander. Talk about ending the conference on a high note!

We'd like to thank MEA for putting their entertainment needs in our hands, and a special shout out to ONEILL PHOTOGRAPHICS for the great photos! The feedback from both MEA and attendees has been extraordinary. 

The Results:

Here's what some people had to say:

“In a time when you can download most presentations and watch them later, conferences need those big emotional moments where you simply had to be there. That’s what brings people together and creates memories, which is what you’re trying to do with any event. SongDivision delivers that. Plus they're lovely people to work with." Ian Whitworth, Founder of Scene Change & Director of Meetings & Events Australia

"One of the main reasons I love what I do is working with professionals like Sam and Lionel. They understand the power of the live event and completely get the art of creating unique memories. If you want to turn the average into the awesome then work with SongDivision." Rob Vass, Group General Manager, TurningPoint Solutions.

“I just love being entertained by SongDivision. Sam and his crew show that they have the talent, flexibility and the energy to handle any audience and we know how tough our industry can be to entertain! I always know it’s going to be a good event when SongDivision are involved.” Kellie Howard - Business Development Manager, ID Events Australia

"As a supplier, deciding to invest your product and service into an industry centric event is a decision of significance; to put not only your greatest assets in the spotlight but to expose yourself to your peers is no easy feat. As we all know, first impressions are everything, Sam and the team at SongDivision solidified their presence at the conference from inception with their energetic, all encompassing & continual professionalism. Each facet executed by SongDivision throughout the conference projected genuine passion, energy and far exceeded expectations from an attendees perspective. I am proud to share in an industry with a company such as SongDivision and seek any opportunity for my clients to share in such experiences.' Ashleigh Taylor - Sales Manager, The Star
