Blog » iVvy Customer, Adelaide Hills Convention Centre Wins Gold
Amid fierce competition and in front of more than 800 key tourism industry representatives gathered at the Optus Stadium in Perth on 23 February for the 2017 Qantas Australian Tourism Awards, the Adelaide Hills Convention Centre won gold and was named “Best Business Event Venue” in Australia in recognition of its provision of unique, world class business event services and facilities.
The awarded venue is located a convenient 20 minutes from Adelaide’s CBD, perched atop 32 acres of manicured grounds within the Hahndorf Resort. The venue launched by the Schirripa family in 2014, has undergone a major transformation from a rundown, dilapidated venue, to become one of the region’s most modern, and sought after corporate events venues.
Rising above the valleys in the picturesque Mount Lofty Ranges, the centre has capacity for 400+ guests with 52 beautiful on-site accommodation residences. Service excellence is the team’s number one priority, along with providing incredible locally sourced food curated by the centre’s on-site 5-star Executive Chef, fully integrated AV solutions, stunning on-site accommodation, break out room options plus event management services to create flawless experiences that see clients from across the country returning time and again.
The venue won the award because of what Stephen Pearce, the Marketing Manager for the venue attributes to “Service Excellence”. Service excellence is about performing at an exceptional level in every aspect of our operation, whether it be presales, event management, catering or AV Services. Pearce explained that “technology plays an integral part of the promise for how they can further manage this level of service and according to the judges was one of the key reasons they won the award.”
With a focus on providing clients a service of excellence with stress free, under control events and having the iVvy platform to provide ease of venue and event management, the future is looking bright for this regional venue. Congratulations, Adelaide Hills Convention Centre iVvy is proud to support you in achieving your success.
