The Uluru Meeting Place continues to hold its position as the top meeting venue in the Northern Territory, once again awarded the Brolga Award for Business Tourism in 2015. As a further endorsement the Resort was also awarded the 2015 Brolga for Indigenous Tourism.
The Business Tourism Award recognises not only the superior facilities for meetings and events that are available to guests but also the breadth of options for unique team building activities that are available to delegates.
“To be awarded the highest accolade in the Northern Territory for two such important categories is a fantastic endorsement of the success of the entire team,” said Voyages CEO Andrew Williams.
“We also recognise the importance of those closest to the facilities, our clients. Feedback from meeting planners is that the destination is an ideal venue to ensure that delegates remain together during the entire event,” said Andrew.
Meeting Planners also tell us that our deep involvement in Indigenous employment and training, as well as the free guest experiences on offer, all of which reflect an aspect of Indigenous culture, provide a unique delegate experience. The spirituality of Uluru, immediately recognisable, creates a powerful basis for team building and bonding. Indigenous employment at the Resort currently stands at 243 staff or 31% of total workforce, well in line with the goal of 50% by 2018.
“In addition, the fact that every dollar of profit we make goes back to the Resort to support Indigenous employment and training, Resort renovation and general improvement is also powerful for those companies looking for a CSR component to their events,” said Andrew.
