The Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre won the award over a number of other regional venues.
Meanwhile, the Centre has also been named as a finalist for two Exhibition and Events Association of Australasia Awards (EEAA) for Best Green Initiative and Best Venue Team – Exhibitions, to be announced in December.
Centre Chief Executive Ton van Amerongen said he was extremely proud of the venue’s achievements.
“We have a world-class venue and a fantastic team who deliver an exceptional service to our clients, so it is wonderful to see this recognised within the travel and tourism industry,” Mr van Amerongen said.
