Grand Hyatt Melbourne is thrilled to announce we are the Supporting Partner for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2017, hosting the awards’ Academy Chairs who will be visiting Melbourne for the week long program in April.
“We could not be more thrilled to be partnering with Tourism Australia and The World’s 50 Best Restaurants for this iconic event,” says Ilan Weill, General Manager Grand Hyatt Melbourne.
“It is undoubtedly the most exciting and celebrated industry event around the world. To be a part of the awards and host the most influential food media and personalities is a great honour for Grand Hyatt Melbourne. It will be an unforgettable experience for our entire hotel, one which I know our colleagues will take great pride in being a part of.”
Established in 2002 the world famous awards were hosted in London for 14 years, before moving to New York in 2016 and will now make the journey to Melbourne for 2017, an incredible opportunity for Tourism Australia and its partners to showcase the world class culinary scene in Melbourne, as well as the rest of Australia.
Grand Hyatt Melbourne will work closely with Tourism Australia and the organisers of the awards to ensure The World’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy Chairs have the opportunity to experience the very best of our city’s cultural and culinary experiences, many of which are positioned right on our Collins Street doorstep, such as the iconic graffiti filled laneways, famous Flinders Lane food scene, theatre district and luxury shopping strip.
“We look forward to welcoming Tourism Australia, The World’s 50 Best Restaurants team and their guests in April 2017, ensuring they have an unforgettable experience in Australia and during their stay with Grand Hyatt Melbourne,” says Ilan Weill.
William Drew, Group Editor of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants adds, “Our Academy Chairs are some of the most influential figures in gastronomy worldwide and we are delighted that they will be staying at the Grand Hyatt Melbourne for the core part of our program in Australia.”
