Sydney Showground wins second major award in 12 months
“Sydney Showground operates 365 days a year and hosts 110 events for approximately 1.7 million people,” said Peter Thorpe, general manager of Sydney Showground.
“It takes a cohesive, professional and efficient business to deliver outstanding service year-round, and I’m thrilled this Australian Event Award has highlighted the team’s efforts to the nation.
“This year, the business incredibly delivered Australia’s largest ticketed event, the Sydney Royal Easter Show, before turning their dedication to the Nu Skin gala dinner within days. Our incredible chefs and service staff delivered 4000, 5-star meals with precision timing, for this complex event – just one example of many where the team exceeded client expectations.”
Co-chair of the Australian Event Awards independent industry judging panel, Sandy Hollway, said the strength of all entries in the Event Awards is a testament to the winners.
“Winners this year have shown an impressive ability to bring creative, engaging concepts to life, and to surmount constraints and obstacles to deliver incredible experiences to attendees at a vast array of public and private events both in Australia and overseas,” he said.
