Maximising the talent of Melbourne’s most passionate EAs, PAs & Administration Professionals.


In business, it’s not always what you know, it’s who you know.

While EAs and PAs often work solo, we understand the power of collaboration – and we’re some of the most connected people in the corporate world.

EAs and PAs have direct access to CEOs, directors and senior leaders in their organisations – so, if you want to gain access to the real decision-makers, without having to jump through hoops, a partnership with MEAG makes sense.

MEAG is a unique platform that allows you to connect with Melbourne’s best EAs and PAs, both online and in person, and bridge the gap between your business and the companies you want to engage with.

MEAG partners enjoy a range of priceless professional benefits, including:

    • Increased exposure – have big businesses talk about your brand at the boardroom table
    • Invitations to exclusive industry events – get up close and personal with the key players
    • Access to the MEAG database – jump the queue and connect easily with all the right people

Just like we only attract Melbourne’s most dedicated EAs and PAs, we only partner with Melbourne’s best businesses – market leaders, innovators and organisations committed to staying ahead of the game.

Ready to unlock a whole new world of opportunities? MEAG will be your best friend in business.

Ben Ross & Nicola Veltman are the founders of 1000 Mile Travel Group. Combined they have been in the industry for over 40 years, so are what you might call travelpreneurs. They both started their careers in large travel businesses, here in Australia and have led multiple teams. They identified a gap in the corporate travel market in 2014 to help bring the expertise of the best in the industry to the corporate customer.

1000 Mile Corporate Travel – Built for Today, Flexible for Tomorrow

In the Australian SME market, customers want a corporate travel partner that can work around them, provide market-leading technology solutions, be flexible and offer the expertise that only a dedicated extension to their company’s travel policy and program can provide. At 1000 Mile, we take pride in delivering all of this and at a competitive cost.

The 1000 Mile model is built and committed to providing corporate clients with a dedicated and highly experienced travel consultant, or as we call them – Travel Expert. By getting to intimately know and understand your company’s travel program, your Travel Expert is not just an expert at booking and managing travel, but an expert in you and your business.

Why We’re Different

From our unique mobile model and cutting-edge corporate technology to our guarantee to be transparent with how we do business, at 1000 Mile, we’re committed to providing our customers with a more personalised, cost-efficient and seamless corporate travel solution.

Our Service

We take pride in providing our corporate clients with a dedicated mobile Travel Expert who has the flexibility to offer services from anywhere that suits you and your business. Your dedicated Travel Expert is backed up by our Strategic Client Management team who are there to provide regular review meetings and reports as well as industry and technology updates as they hit the market.


At 1000 Mile, we put our state-of-the-art technology suite at the forefront of our model. By giving our corporate customers the power to choose between two market-leading online booking tools,

our technology suite can be better tailored to suit your business’ corporate travel requirements. By listening to your business needs, we can ensure policy requirements and exceptional traveller experience are delivered.


Thanks to the partnerships we’ve formed with some of the biggest names in the industry, our corporate customers have access to the best deals for all major airlines, hotels and car hire operators across the globe. Our strategic partnerships give our customers the confidence that their Travel Expert will not be beaten on cost, value or service while working as an extension of their business.


We take pride in putting everything on the table from the beginning to form a truly open partnership with our clients. We transparently factor the commission (which all travel agencies receive) into our pricing so you can be confident that our offering is what’s best for your business. Our clients see this refreshing approach as a commitment to a lifelong partnership. “We have utilised 1000 Mile Travel for our corporate travel needs for the last few years and they have been a dream in supporting us throughout this time. Nothing is ever too much trouble, the consultants are friendly and efficient, offering the best solutions for any complex business travel requirements and ensuring we receive highly competitive rates and services.”

“We have been working with 1000 Mile travel since January 2019. One of the reasons they won our business was the fact focus on the client, and we didn’t feel like a number to them. They are a specialised boutique team that have an energetic and proactive management team. The service provided has been fabulous, and the transition to working with them seamless. There was a lot of work done at the beginning to ensure it all went smoothly. More than a year into working with them, I continue to be impressed by their commitment, communication and high level service, and encourage you to work with them also.”

- Lisa Riddell, Executive Assistant to the Director, Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute. (MEAG Member)
