  1. In collaboration with leading nutritional experts, Adelaide Convention Centre has developed a healthy, ‘house made’ menu which will be launched next month. The ‘Honest Goodness’ menu was created by executive chef Gavin Robertson, and focusses on minimum intervention foods that are low in salts, sugars and preservatives. Sugar-laden drinks have been swapped out for ice teas and fruit infused waters, natural rubs and house-made marinades have replaced ingredients featuring nitrates and processed meats have been swapped for smoked and roasted meats.
  2. The launch of Intercontinental Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort this month marked the 1000th IHG property to open in the EMEAA region. The group boasts eight brands and works with over 500 hotel owners in EEMEA, with another 321 hotels in the pipeline. The new property is located on the picturesque Phu Quoc island, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve off the coast of Vietnam. Six restaurants and bars and state-of-the-art meeting facilities make up its luxurious offerings.
  3. CEO of Tourism Noosa Damien Massingham announced his resignation yesterday, following a six year tenure with the organisation. Damien will be returning to the Queensland Club Industry to take up the role of general manager at Frenchville Sports Club. On his resignation, Damien said “Being part of a team that has produced new, award winning and innovative marketing campaigns resulting in an increase in high value… visitors which in turn has created and retained local jobs has been very rewarding.”
  4. In preparation for the opening of its $200 million expansion next month, the MCEC has invested in a suite of new technologies. The new spaces will feature 4k laser projectors, LED-based theatrical lighting equipment and fully-integrated rigging infrastructure, in order to provide customisable event spaces. The centre is also investing $2 million to improve Wi-Fi capabilities. MCEC chief executive Peter King said “The new expansion has allowed us to… meet the technical needs of today’s customer and continuously adapt into the future.”
  5. micenet staff were sad to learn of the news that Louis Allen passed away on Sunday evening at his home in Vietnam. Louis was a fixture in the business event sector for many years in Australia before taking on the role of editor of Executive PA magazine and later moving to Vietnam to live and work. At industry trade shows and educationals he could always be found with a camera in his hand and a trilby hat on his head.
