Sydney Showground nominated a finalist in the EEAA Awards for its Jeunesse Global extravaganza

Posted on : 12 November 2018

Sydney Showground has done it again – nominated as a finalist in the prestigious Exhibition and Event Association Awards (EEAA) for a gala event it staged across two nights earlier this year.

Sydney Showground has been declared a finalist in the Best Venue Team category for its handling of the Jeunesse Global account.  

In May 2018, Sydney Showground (Sydney Olympic Park) hosted across two nights, gala dinners for its client Jeunesse Global for the business’ Chinese high achievers.

More than 6600 Jeunesse Global distributors travelled to Sydney from China and were hosted for dinner and entertainment on either the 26th or 28th of May inside Sydney Showground’s iconic ‘The Dome’.

Across those two nights Sydney Showground’s catering staff catered for 6607 guests with canapes and a three course meal served out of two kitchens, one purpose built for the event.

This included 19,800 canapes, 20,000 prawns and 1320 kilograms of fish.  

The two nights also included top end entertainment, sound and lighting. 

The Sydney Showground team has built a reputation for being able to create ‘bespoke’ experiences for its clients, sometimes at the shortest of notice.

In recent weeks Sydney Showground was the home base for the competitors and their family and friends in the Invictus Games 2018, a weeklong competition between military servicemen and women from 18 countries.

This event required the Sydney Showground catering team to create meals based on the dietary needs and abilities of the competitors to consume them following their service and/or injuries.

Head of Sales for Sydney Showground Andrew Roberts welcomed the organisation’s latest inclusion in the EEAA finals ranks in relation to the Jeunesse experience;

“We pride ourselves on our team’s ability to be flexible and meet our client’s individual needs and requests,” Andrew Roberts said.

“It is an honour to again be recognised as a finalist in the EEAA awards as Best Venue Team and it is a tip of the cap to every member of our hardworking team,” he said.

The winner of the award will be announced at a gala evening in Sydney on December 5, 2018.
