Criteria and Eligibility for BE Mentored

The BE Mentored Programme is run and facilitated by Business Events Industry Aotearoa (BEIA) and is designed specifically for the professional development of employees within the Business Events sector. ​


Mentees must be an employee of a BEIA Member organisation. 

There is an expectation that Mentees will demonstrate commitment to their own self-development. Mentees will need to be proactive in contacting their Mentor, arranging meetings and completing any tasks or review of progress between meetings. Mentees will need to fully appreciate the role of the Mentor and the voluntary nature of the mentoring arrangement.

The final selection of Mentees is made at the discretion of BEIA. 

An administration fee is required for all Mentees. This fee is to be paid before the commencement of the Programme. 


Mentors must be experienced practitioners within their field and hold a management position.

Mentors must be willing to serve in developing the profession on a voluntary basis and show a clear understanding of the expectations and commitments required to be a Mentor.

It is hoped that Mentors who become involved in BE Mentored will wish to continue their involvement in years to come.
