Ayers Rock Resort’s Uluru Meeting Place has been awarded Australia’s top business event honour, the Australian Tourism Award for Business Tourism at a gala awards ceremony held in Sydney.

The Award recognises Uluru Meeting Place’s premium conference facilities and its ability to cater to a wide variety of conferences and events together with providing unique offerings to delegates.

We are incredibly thrilled to receive recognition at the highest level for Uluru Meeting Place,” said Ray Stone, Executive General Manager at Voyages.

Other achievements at the Australian Tourism Awards included a Silver for Indigenous Tourism at Ayers Rock Resort and a Bronze for Sails in the Desert Hotel in the Luxury Tourism Category.

“Since opening in late 2012, Uluru Meeting Place has gone from strength to strength in terms of the successful number and variety of events that have been held.  Through the hard work and dedication of our core team we have proven it is possible to have a facility of the highest standard in the middle of the Australian Desert,” said Ray.

The destination itself in the presence of Uluru, the spiritual heart of Australia, creates interest and excitement, however we know that our clients and guests are looking for further elements – a comprehensive range of activity options and an exceptional level of food and beverage service.  To add to this, they also require an exemplary five star hotel and a range of accommodation options.

The ballroom at Uluru Meeting place can seat up to 420 people and can also be sub-divided into smaller meeting spaces.  A second ballroom that seats over 300 which can also be split to create an integrated conference arena. When combined these two rooms create a large area ideal for events and trade shows.
