Whitsunday Times - - 2013 WHITSUNDAY TOURISM AWARDS -

HAMIL­TON Is­land Con­fer­ences won the award for Busi­ness Tourism.


Is­land’s Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer Glenn Bourke said win­ning the award was im­mensely re­ward­ing for the team who worked tire­lessly be­hind the scenes to make each event a suc­cess.

“This award is tes­ta­ment to their on-go­ing com­mit­ment and hard work,” he said.

“Hamil­ton Is­land is also very blessed as we have in­cred­i­ble con­fer­ence fa­cil­i­ties avail­able which cater for myr­iad events.

“We are how­ever, very aware that Busi­ness Tourism is con­tin­u­ally de­vel­op­ing and be­com­ing more com­pet­i­tive with higher ex­pec­ta­tions from cus­tomers.”

Mr Bourke said that with this is mind, Hamil­ton Is­land was con­stantly look­ing to im­prove the of­fer­ing and last year they ran a se­ries of fo­cus groups with cus­tomers and now had an ac­tion plan to take Busi­ness Tourism to the next level.

Hamil­ton Is­land hosted more than 100 busi­ness events a year and is a ver­sa­tile venue with its abil­ity to cater for 10 to 1,000 del­e­gates.

The event venues and fa­cil­i­ties in­clude two con­fer­ence cen­tres, air­port hangars, wide streets, trop­i­cal gar­dens and lawns and a choice of waters-edge venues in­clud­ing ma­rina piers, pool­side mar­quees and beaches, each pro­vid­ing a unique back­drop.
