Gourmet Escape named Australia’s Best New Event

November 23, 2013 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

The Margaret River Gourmet Escape has been named Australia’s Best New Event at the 2013 Australian Event Awards.

The awards were celebrated in style at the Industry Night of Nights at Doltone House, Hyde Park on Tuesdaynight.

The Gourmet Escape, run by Brand Events Australia, outshone the other finalists in its category – the Top Gear Festival Sydney, The Rocks Windmill and the AGL 175th Gala Celebration to take the title of Australia’s Best New Event.

Augusta Margaret River Tourism Association CEO Pip Close said this was a major coup for the Margaret River Region.

“The Margaret River Gourmet Escape is truly exceptional and Brand Events has done a first-class job organising such a high-profile event.

“With the calibre of culinary stars like Heston Blumenthal and Rick Stein gracing the line-up, and the incredible program of events – long lunches, gourmet beach BBQs, the Gourmet Village at Leeuwin Estate – Margaret River Gourmet Escape sets an extremely high standard for food and wine events in Australia, and in the entire Asia-Pacific.

“The Margaret River Region is rapidly boosting its reputation as a global culinary hotspot, and the Gourmet Escape is the perfect means to showcase the region’s outstanding wine and produce to the world.

“We are extremely proud to host this spectacular event in the beautiful Margaret River Region, and it is thoroughly deserving of the title of Australia’s Best New Event,” said Ms Close.

The Margaret River Gourmet Escape opens tonight at Little Meelup beach, and the event officially kicks off to the public tomorrow.  Limited tickets are still available through Ticketek.
