The awards are the premier accolade of best industry management practice and outstanding performance in the Australian Meetings and Events industry.
Awards are judged by an independent consultant from outside the industry based upon business criteria which assess the capacity to plan, manage resources and the financial performance of the business.
Epicure’s capability of running a ‘special event’ organisation was recognised, rather than the organisation of one particular event itself.
Accepting the award on behalf of Epicure was Frank Scifo, Sales Manager Victoria, who acknowledged the contribution of the entire team across multiple departments who continue to be client driven in their approach.
The professionalism and leadership of the senior management team and the Melbourne Cricket Club was also acknowledged as being a key contributor to the successful delivery of Melbourne Cricket Ground offering.
State winners will now move ahead as finalists at the national awards to be held in Brisbane during the MEA National Conference from April 17-19.
