Sydney Olympic Park Business Events takes NSW top gong at MEA Industry Awards

Hot off its recent award win at AIME, (Asia-Pacific Incentive & Meetings Expo), the Sydney Olympic Park Business Events team has again been recognised for exemplary management practice and outstanding performance, taking the State Winner Award in the category of 'Regional Destination Marketing Organisation' at this week's Meetings & Events Australia (MEA) Industry Awards.

Focused on destination marketing services relating specifically to the convention and meetings market, the category State Winner Award puts Sydney Olympic Park Business Events in the running for a National Award to be announced at the MEA 2015 National Conference on Hamilton Island from 24-26 May.

"To receive such significant acknowledgement by MEA is truly gratifying and undoubtedly one of many pinnacle highlights thus far this year for Sydney Olympic Park Business Events," said Karlah van Arend, Sydney Olympic Park Business Events Manager.

"With 100 function spaces, across 10 venues, in one destination, Sydney Olympic Park is equipped to cater to virtually any type of corporate event. What's more, we offer our clients tailored support, a free Central Venue finding service and experienced marketing support.

"As a Business Events team, we know the uniqueness of Sydney Olympic Park and we're dedicated to marketing this knowledge in the right way, to the right audience. I'm delighted MEA is so approving of our destination marketing approach as the best in the state and I'm quietly confident our efforts will shine through on a national level too," she added.

Celebrating its 15th Anniversary this year, Sydney Olympic Park facilitates  almost  6,000 events annually, half of which are business events.
