For the fourth consecutive year, The Star Event Centre has been recognised at the prestigious National Meetings & Events Australia (MEA) Awards Dinner held last night in Adelaide, this year receiving the award for the Best Event Management Team: In-House Corporate.  

The win is evidence of The Star’s world-class venues, services and staff that, together, have set a new industry benchmark for delivering outstanding events and professional services for clients that go above and beyond expectations time and time again. 

Dino Mezzatesta, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Hotels, Food & Beverage and Retail, is delighted to see the Star Event Centre’s in-house event professionals recognised for their vision, work ethic and delivery.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to receive an award that acknowledges the team behind our world-class event offering. At the end of the day, our event offering is only as good as the team behind it, and ours is passionate about its pursuit of event service excellence and creating memorable moments for our clients.” 

“Hosting events from The ARIA Awards with hundreds of screaming fans on the red carpet and the GQ Man of the Year, through to banquet dinners, conferences and premieres including The Greatest Showman, the team has demonstrated incredible skill in what has been a massive year. 

The Star Event Centre In-House Event Team has hosted over 175 events between 1 October 2016 and 31 December 2017, including 77 banquet dinners, 25 conferences, 17 cocktail events, 19 concerts and one movie premiere. 

Samantha Valente, Director of Events for The Star Sydney accepted the award on The Star’s behalf.
