On behalf of Gold Coast Tourism (including the GCBE team) I just wanted to pass on our most sincere thank you to you and the team at Sharks Event Centre for assisting us to host such as successful event yesterday. We received so many positive comments on the venue, particularly the Cabana Lounge, from other members. I don’t think people realise what you have up there. The food was also beautiful and everyone seemed to love the cocktail. Well done Carlos! Thank you also for all your generosity regarding the quote, liaising with the AV company to secure us such a good deal and also for donating the fantastic prize. As event contact for the day, we wanted to make special note of Susan who did a wonderful job, was so attentive and made my role so incredibly easy. Thank you so much again and we look forward to working with Sharks Event Centre again soon.

I’d like to congratulate you and your team on a tremendous effort for our charity fundraiser Phil Whitehead Herman’s Hermits Concert. Thank you for assisting with the planning and execution and for the last minute changes. The team was super friendly and efficient, particularly your team member who looked after my table on her very first shift. Well done to all!

The Success of the Community Cabinet Meeting was due to the outstanding and tireless effort of many people and I would like to thank you for your invaluable contribution to this event. The hospitality extended to Ministers and their staff and the efficient manner in which duties were carried out was greatly appreciated.

We’ve hosted our staff meeting at the Sharks Event Centre, and the team are very helpful and dedicated to supporting and delivering the outcomes we need, given some of the complex requirements with A/V and fitting up to 800 staff members in a room!
