The MEA Industry Awards recognise excellence and best business practice in the Meetings and Events Industry. They encourage industry professionals to excel in the achievement of their business and personal goals, and reward those who achieve outstanding results. Held at the BARR cafe in Perth’s iconic His Majesty’s Theatre, the event was an exciting evening of networking and recognition.
Pan Pacific Perth reigned victorious on the night taking home the only venue award for ‘Meeting Venue – 500 Delegates or More’ for the second consecutive year. The hotel holds the largest Convention Floor of any 5-star hotel in the Perth CBD, boasting world class facilities that are seamlessly paired with award-winning service to ensure all events, regardless of size, are delivered with confidence and bespoke elegance. With 2120sqm of function space which includes 11 meeting rooms, two ballrooms and generous pre-function areas, the hotel’s dedicated Convention Level features bold, contemporary décor, with the latest in audio-visual technology, including integrated sound systems, HD-enabled projectors and Wi-Fi access.
“We are delighted to have our venue recognised among our peers in the industry. This award is a team effort and a credit to our dedicated sales associates, events managers, banquets team and the entire hotel,” commented Glenn Shoebridge, Director of Sales and Marketing who accepted the award.
Pan Pacific Perth also took home the Education Award in acknowledgment of their efforts in associate training and development.
Additionally, the hotel was proud to have Individual Award Finalist Sarah Martin walk away with the ‘Business Development Person to the Year’ award for her efforts in MICE Business Development. Sarah has been a valued member of the hotel team for over twelve months and is a very deserving winner. Sarah will be representing Pan Pacific Perth in the MEA National awards in May.
