Luna Park Venues will celebrate their longstanding relationship with the Executive Assistant Network next week, hosting their annual national conference at the iconic venue space for the 10th year running – 16 & 17 March 2016.
Over two days, 300 guests will be well looked after by the Luna Park Venues award-winning events and catering teams, arranging conferences, an exhibition and a gala dinner across three different venues.
The gala dinner will be held on the Wednesday evening, allowing guests the chance to mingle and network while enjoying Luna Park’s world-class catering and spectacular views of Sydney Harbour from the Ted Hopkins Room.
An entrée of a sautéed zucchini, fennel, lemon thyme and goat’s curd tart accompanied by a tomato jam, olive tapenade, roasted pepper & avocado salad will be served before a main course of Hickory smoked roast beef sirloin, caramelised parisienne potatoes with garlic, thyme roast carrots and Swiss brown mushrooms drizzled with a merlot jus. Dessert will be a caramel parfait, served with rich chocolate mousse, salted caramel & crushed peanuts.
Luna Park Venues General Manager Sales, James Granter, is proud of the decade-long connection between the venue space and conference and is excited to see the event continue to grow and reinvent itself.
“Luna Park Venues is extremely proud to be the founding host venue, consistent sponsor and partner of the Executive Assistant Network for the past 10 years. We hosted the very first EAN conference in Sydney back in 2007 and we’re thrilled to be part of the exceptional value the conference has delivered to their members for over a decade,” he said.
“We’ve seen the EAN grow into Australia’s pre-eminent body representing Australia’s EAs over the past 10 years and would like to congratulate Natasha Cannon and Jonathan McIlroy on the development of such a powerful and highly valued networking group.”
“EAN combines professional development and training with exhibition, conferencing and industry networking events in a unique and engaging way, while constantly educating and inspiring their members. Luna Park Venues hopes to continue the partnership over many more years,” Granter said.
EAN’s Natasha Cannon said, “We are so immensely grateful for the continued support and loyalty shown by Luna Park over our 10 years and are so excited to once again be hosting our Sydney Conference & Exhibition at their amazing venues.”
