On Thursday, 5 April, Pullman Bunker Bay Resort was crowned the winner of the ‘Meeting, Exhibition or Event Venue - Capacity less than 500’ category in the 2017 Meeting & Events Australia (MEA) WA Industry Awards held in Perth at the Mounts Bay Sailing Club.

This prestigious award recognises the guest-centric efforts of Pullman’s team and acknowledges the work of the resort in playing an active role in promoting the Margaret River Region as a world class destination for event organisers.

Leighton Yates, General Manager at Pullman Bunker Bay Resort, accepted the award and highlighted the collaborative efforts of the resort’s experienced events team.

"Winning the Meeting, Exhibition or Event Venue category is a tremendous honour and we are so proud of our team members. Their passion for delivering outstanding customer service has been consistently noted in testimonials from conference clients throughout the last 12 months, and it is fantastic to have their hard work officially recognised by this award.

"Our MEA award comes off the back of winning Silver in the ‘Business Events’ category at the WA Tourism Council Awards in November last year, further strengthening Pullman’s position as Western Australia’s premier conference and event venue.

"The Margaret River region is a true 'Business Playground', and at Pullman we encourage meeting planners to embrace the benefits of our beautiful backyard – offering a balance of modern event spaces, alongside wellness and unique destination-based experiences," said Mr Yates.

Pullman Bunker Bay Resort will now move forward to compete for the national title at the MEA National Awards Dinner, which will take place on Tuesday, 8 May 2018 in Adelaide.
