The awards are the premier accolade of best industry management practice and outstanding performance in the Australian Meetings and Events industry.

Awards were judged by an independent consultant from many submissions responding to set criteria in two sections; Business Criteria and Year in Review Criteria.

The winning submission from Epicure provided details of Epicure’s extensive involvement in the Meeting Industry, together with details of Epicure’s history at the MCG.

“The award was a result of the hard work from all the staff involved at the MCG and the attention to detail at every level,” said Epicure’s David Mercer upon accepting the award.
