The Melbourne Convention + Visitors Bureau (MCVB) has been inducted into the RACV Victorian Tourism Awards Hall of Fame after winning the Meetings and Business Tourism award for the third consecutive year at the ceremony held at the Crown Palladium.
Karen Bolinger, CEO of MCVB, said this year’s award and the consequential Hall of Fame induction, was a major coup for the organization and for Victoria’s business events industry.
“Melbourne is already well regarded as the business events capital of Australia, and the ceremony further cements the city’s status as the best of the best,” said Bolinger.
Bolinger said the win has made for a fantastic welcome to the organization.
“I knew coming into this organization that MCVB has a strong reputation as a business events powerhouse, and looking back at the organization’s results over the past few months and the last financial year, it’s no surprise we are being recognized at such an elite level,” she said.
Bolinger also acknowledged MCVB members who were award recipients.
“Driver Group/Gray Line (Tour and/or Transport Operators), RACV Inverloch Resort (Deluxe Accommodation), Alto Hotel (Qantas Award for Excellence in Sustainable Tourism) and Peninsula Hot Springs (Health and Wellness Tourism) were all awarded at the ceremony, and we extend our warmest congratulations to them all,” she said.
