Darwin Convention Centre’s food standards a factor in its Brolga win
The awards ceremony took place in Alice Springs, where the industry’s leading tourism businesses and individuals were competing for recognition across 27 categories.
“Our passion is always to showcase the Darwin Convention Centre as a modern, world-class venue with outstanding dining experiences and exceptional service” said Darwin Convention Centre general manager Janet Hamilton.
“I want to particularly thank the talented and enthusiastic team at the Centre for their constant commitment to excellence in customer service and always trying to exceed client expectation.”
A number of key factors were included in the Centre’s award submission including receiving certification for ISO 22000, which ensures the Centre delivers the highest standard of food safety to its delegates. The Centre is the only hospitality venue in the Northern Territory to receive this certification for food safety management.
The Centre also introduced more targeted marketing strategies to effectively reach national and international clients and installed a new LED external lighting system that can project 16 million different colours across the Centre.
The Darwin Convention Centre is now a finalist in the 2018 Qantas Australian Tourism Awards, which will be hosted in Perth in February.
