Sea World Resort has enlisted some iconic Hollywood star-power to help with the official groundbreaking of the new multimillion dollar Conference Centre which is hoped will grow the conferencing and events market on the Gold Coast.
Marilyn Monroe and Austin Powers and his babes donned hardhats recently to help commence work on the site of the 750m2 Conference Centre due to open in June 2015.
With the conferencing and events business contributing over $276M to the local economy in 2013, Village Roadshow Theme Parks Conferencing and Events Sales Manager Caroline Duveau-Clayton said the new Conference Centre will provide a new focus for the MICE market on the Gold Coast.
“This new Conference Centre will allow us to do business on a much larger scale, accommodating up to 1000 delegates and coupled with the Resort’s 400 rooms and suites, will reinforce Village Roadshow Theme Park’s position as one of the premiere MICE destinations on the Gold Coast,” Ms Duveau-Clayton said.
“We thought it was only fitting to enlist the help of Bugs, Marilyn and Austin at this groundbreaking event, to really emphasise our team’s ability to create simply unforgettable conferences and events.
“Delegates can discover a world of difference here at Sea World Resort and thanks to our theme park sister properties, we can not only facilitate amazing events such as dinner with the stars at Movie World and breakfast with the Dolphins at Sea World, we can also offer partners programs providing families with amazing experiences.
“The new Conference Centre will feature the latest audio-visual equipment, a Porte Cochere with vehicle access, as well as a large veranda ideal for coffee breaks, lunches and cocktail receptions and will bring Sea World Resort’s total conference space to 2000m2.
“With the addition of the conference centre, the award-winning Sea World Resort will cement itself as an all-purpose destination for delegates and guests.”
