Scholarship to Shanghai

Student Hannah Simboro won the only Australian scholarship to attend an international events congress in Shanghai.

"Winning the scholarship to attend the International Congress and Conventions Association congress was an enormous honour.  ICCA represents the world’s leading specialists in meetings and events.

It was a fantastic opportunity for professional development and to network with industry professionals. You never know who you are going to work with in the future.

VU has a great reputation in the industry. When I decided to further my skills, my more experienced work colleagues said: ‘If you’re going to study events, study at Victoria University!’

I get excited about what we are learning in and out of the classroom. I can immediately translate these experiences into my job at Meetings & Events Australia (MEA) because what we learn is relevant to the events industry.

I believe if you work hard enough, you’ll be a success."
