Renowned NSW venue and catering collection, Doltone House takes out the NATIONAL 2011 Meetings & Events Industry Award (Specialty Meeting Venue) category as well as NATIONAL 2011 Cause Related Event of The Year for the Biaggio Signorelli Foundation event.
After being announced NSW state winner for both categories in the Meetings and Events Australia (MEA) Awards in early March 2012, Doltone House has been announced as NATIONAL WINNER of the 2011 Meetings and Events Industry Award for the Specialty Meeting Venue category and 2011 Cause Related Event of The Year, where the partnership between Doltone House and the Biaggio Signorelli Foundation found success.
The prestigious night of nights was hosted by the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre with the who’s who of the National events industry in attendance. The Gala Dinner was the closing event of the 25th anniversary of the MEA National Annual Conference held from 21-24 April 2012.
Awards were accepted by Anna Cesarano, Director and owner of Doltone House. Both acceptance speeches were stand outs as she related back to the guest speakers that presented at the conference…”better to be helicopter people than vending machine people…it’s great being a pilot in the business, but even greater when staff too can sit in the hot seat.”
She later too expressed her heartfelt thanks in accepting an award close to heart, honouring her late father and founder of Doltone House venue and catering collection, with the 2011 Biaggio Signorelli Foundation Gala Dinner taking home best MEA Cause Related Event in Australia. She broke out in song to the Pointer Sisters band chaser, “I’m so excited” as she stepped to the stage, “and I just can’t hide it…I’m about to lose control and I think I like it”.
