Sandton Convention Centre is the national five-star winner in the Conference and Exhibition Venue category of the prestigious 2019 Lilizela Tourism Awards.
Shaun Bird, GM of Sandton Convention Centre, was delighted at his team’s achievement. “I have no doubt that this significant award won by Sandton Convention Centre can be attributed to team dedication, to the fact that everyone works together to ensure that every event runs smoothly, and that clients receive the best service possible.
“Our core strategy this year is customer focus – being flexible and listening to what our clients want. This has definitely paid off.”
SCC’s ability to listen to clients’ wants and needs ensures that events are tailor-made to requests. “Another of our key differentiators is our world-class food and beverage offering, and earlier this year, Executive Chef James Khoza and his team introduced new menus in line with client requests, while also taking into account changing trends in the food industry as well as sustainability. Our chefs are available to host food tasting sessions for our clients to ensure that their menu preferences are accommodated.”
The acclaimed Lilizela Tourism Awards presented by SA Tourism, now in their seventh year, recognise and reward tourism businesses that deliver a world-class product and service, and contribute to the growth of South Africa’s global competitiveness. They also give hospitality and tourism businesses the opportunity to compete and assess how they measure up against similar businesses in the industry, providing a further boost to South Africa’s already high quality and wide-ranging tourism offerings.
