Hobart’s Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel enjoyed another successful night at the annual Qantas Australian Tourism Awards last month, being inducted into the Hall of Fame after winning Gold for the third consecutive year in the Business Event Venue category at the gala dinner held at the Darwin Convention and Exhibition Centre on February 24, 2017.
The Old Woolstore triumphed against tough competition from all states and territories to take home its seventh Gold award at national level since 2008, along with the Silver award for Deluxe Accommodation.
Chief Executive Officer, Ben Targett, said “Everyone at The Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel will be incredibly excited and honoured to have been recognised as one of Australia’s most successful tourism businesses. Over many years our team have worked hard to provide genuine hospitality and this result just highlights their ongoing passion for creating wonderful guest experiences.
“To achieve both national Hall of Fame status in the highly competitive Business Event Venue category and Silver in Deluxe Accommodation is an extraordinary acknowledgment of the value of continual investment, innovation and focusing on the needs of our guests. To win Gold three years in a row is just phenomenal.”
Mr Targett went on to say: “We would also like to sincerely thank our industry and commercial partners, and of course our guests for their ongoing support.”
It was another successful year for Tasmanian operators, winning a total of 14 medals combined – five gold, seven silver and two bronze – more than any other state.
The Qantas Australian Tourism Awards recognise and promote excellence in tourism and are the pinnacle of achievement for the tourism industry across Australia. They encourage and celebrate professionalism, creativity and innovation, and provide a benchmark for best practice in the tourism industry.
As highlighted by their induction into the Hall of Fame, The Old Woolstore team knows how to deliver events with consistency and personalised service.
Rich in history, ideally located, and with all the extras that appeal to business travellers, the hotel is the obvious choice for your next business event in Hobart.
The purpose-built facilities provide a versatile and professional environment in which to conduct your event. With a unique range of indoor and outdoor options to suit almost any occasion, the property specialises in residential multi-day conferences for up to 170 delegates.
Should you be holding a larger event in Hobart, competitive overflow accommodation and conference options are available.
As an independent property, the team has the flexibility to work with you in designing a conference package which best suits your needs. State-of-the-art digital audio visual capabilities, including Apple Airplay, provide for a professional presentation.

In days of old, the waterfront of Sullivan’s Cove was Hobart Town’s most notorious area.
Today it is a vibrant inner-city location where the welcoming heritage façade of The Old Woolstore masks Tasmania’s finest apartment hotel and conference venue.
