The gala evening was a highlight of the organisation’s ‘Towards 2020’ national conference, which attracted 270 attendees and 47 sponsors and exhibitors for three days of presentations, workshops and activities.
The ultimate recognition of the very best of BIG4 parks, the ‘BIG4 Supreme Award for Excellence’, was awarded to BIG4 Easts Beach Holiday Park, NSW. Special mention was made to the founders of the park, Bruce and Bessie East and the fact the park is proudly celebrating its 80th birthday of continuous operation by the same family.
To emphasise the importance of the customer experience and feedback, BIG4 awarded the first ever BIG4 People’s Choice Award. Presented to the BIG4 Holiday Park which has earned exceptionally high popularity among guests, BIG4 members and the public, the inaugural BIG4 People’s Choice Award was awarded jointly to BIG4 Deniliquin Holiday Park, NSW and BIG4 Cairns Coconut Resort, Qld.
A number of other parks were recognised for loyalty membership and sales accolades, and two individuals were awarded for the staff recognition and rising star awards for their commitment to excellence.
Steven Wright, CEO of BIG4 Holiday Parks, congratulated the parks and individuals on their respective wins. “These accolades recognise the best of the best from within the BIG4 Holiday Parks network,” said Wright.
“The winners have excelled in their categories, and it gives me great pleasure in congratulating them on the honour. The awards are testament to their effort and passion for their parks and their businesses."
