Flames of the Forest in top 5
FLAMES of the Forest is going from strength to strength, taking a top five position for the third year running as best regional venue in SPICE magazine.
As one of Australia’s leading meeting and incentive publications, SPICE asks readers to name the ‘‘best in business’’ across a range of services and suppliers within Australia.
Flames of the Forest is the only mainland venue in Queensland included in this prestigious list.
Flames of the Forest celebrated its 10th anniversary in March this year, having gained an international reputation for its stunning off site rainforest events which combine the natural beauty of the region with superb local produce, surprising and professional entertainment and awe-inspiring special effects.
Flames of the Forest general manager Natalie Johnson said the venue was proud of the award.
‘‘To be included three years running is an absolute testament to our amazing staff - from those in the office to our brilliant kitchen and floor staff on site. This truly is their award,’’ she said. ‘‘To be awarded this accolade by our business events industry clients and peers is really special and we want to thank them for all their support over the past 10 years. We’ve had a truly wonderful time delivering each event.
‘‘We are exceptionally fortunate to operate in such a naturally stunning environment in a region famous for its beauty, fresh produce and sensational surrounds.
‘‘We are delighted this SPICE HOT 100 inclusion will assist in continuing to focus the spotlight on both our venue for gala and awards dinners together with the region as a whole for business events.’’
In recent years Flames of the Forest was awarded Australian Traveller Magazine ‘‘Top 100 Greatest Australian Gourmet Experiences’’, was a finalist in both the 2009 and 2010 Australian Event Awards ‘‘Best Venue’’ category and a ‘‘Best Regional Venue’’ winner in the SPICE Hot 100 Services and Suppliers in 2011 and 2012.
