Operations Manager – Exhibition and Trade Fairs
Georgie Chapman-Burgess is the Operations Manager for the Motoring and Life Style Portfolio, heading up Operations on the National 4x4 Outdoors show, Fishing and Boating Expo and Motorclassica, The Australian International Concours d’Elegance & Classic Motor Show at Exhibitions and Trade Fairs. She is driven by challenge, creativity and providing an exceptional experience to her clients. In 2018 she won the Richard Geddes Young Achiever Award and Tourism Australia Scholarship to attend the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry’s (UFI) Asia-Pacific Conference in Tokyo.
Georgie took an unconventional approach that led to her Event Management career. In her final years at Glen Innes High school, she chose a non-traditional path, which ultimately cost her the opportunity to apply for tertiary education. Eager to get her foot in the door, she approached her Principal to explore other pathways to achieving her career goals. Georgie developed her organisational skills with a Bachelor of Business in Convention and Event Management at Southern Cross University in the Gold Coast.
