Pullman Bunker Bay Resort & Event Sales Manager Zac Leach announced as Finalists in 2018 Meeting & Events Australia Awards

Pullman Bunker Bay Resort is thrilled to be announced as WA Finalists in the Meetings & Events Australia (MEA) 2018 Awards.

On 6 February 2019 the resort was confirmed as WA State Finalist for the MEA 2018 Awards Program in not one but two prestiegious categories:

  • Meeting, Exhibition or Event Venue – Capacity less than 500
  • Sales, Marketing or Business Development Person of the Year – Zac Leach

The MEA Awards recognise venues and talented professionals across the meetings and events industry, and these latest Finalist nominations for the resort are testament to the drive and expertise of Pullman's on-site events team, led by Conference & Events Sales Manager Zac Leach.

Last year Pullman Bunker Bay Resort was the WA state winner of the 'Meeting, Exhibition or Event Venue – Capacity less than 500' category and it is an honour to be a Finalist two years running.

Pullman Resort General Manager Leighton Yates believes Zac’s Finalist nomination is testament to the continued focus that he has on the entire guest journey.

"Zac's approach in establishing the human connection with our clients and all in attendance at our events is his winning formula and one of the reasons why clients continue to return to Pullman Bunker Bay Resort," Leighton said.

"I am also particularly proud of having Pullman Bunker Bay Resort nominated again in the Meeting & Events Venue under 500 guests category. The resort had such a successful 2018 year, with 2019 poised to be even more so, and is only being achieved by the continued dedication of our team"

Zac is extremely honoured to be a Finalist, and congratulated the other venues nominated in the awards. 

"I’d like to congratulate the other Finalists and look forward to once again representing Australia’s South West at the 2019 MEA National Conference. I’d also like to thank both MEA and the Pullman team for helping us showcase the vibrant tapestry of different events that can be hosted in the Margaret River Region," Zac said.

All state finalists will attend the WA Awards event to be held on 8 March 2019 in Perth, with WA state winners going on to represent WA at the National Awards and MEA Annual Conference on 2 April 2019 in Brisbane.

We hope you'll join us in wishing Zac and the Pullman events team the very best of luck.
