Business award for Hamilton Island
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.
