MEA: The Winner is Radisson Resort Gold Coast

Radisson Resort Gold Coast took the major Meeting and Events Industry Award (MEA) for venues catering for 150 to 500 delegates.

The award was announced at a glittering ceremony at Hillstone St Lucia in Brisbane last night. The Meetings and Events Industry Awards recognise excellent business practice in the meetings and events industry. .

Radisson Resort Gold Coast general manager Gerard Knight says he is delighted with the MEA Award. “This shows the Radisson team pulls out all the stops to impress delegates and satisfy the demands of the meetings and events industry,” he says.

“While we are all aware of tough times, it is enormously encouraging to see my team striving to achieve and secure future business. We will now take the next step to the national award in Adelaide.

“Radisson Resort Gold Coast has recently won a number of awards for accommodation, meetings and dining. We plan to stay ahead of the game by utilising the enormous talent pool within the team,” Mr Knight says.

Radisson Resort Gold Coast was a finalist in the MEA Corporate Social Responsibility Awards.

Radisson Resort director of sales and marketing Suzie Jones says the entire team is thrilled with the result. “It is fantastic to see our efforts recognised,” she says.

“It is very encouraging to see the efforts made by other Queensland business leaders. Congratulations to all MEA Award winners, we all work together to make this State great,” Suzie says.
