HY­ATT will move to ex­pand its con­fer­ence busi­ness in Aus­tralia fol­low­ing the launch of its Hy­att Regency Sydney at Dar­ling Har­bour last week.

The re­brand­ing of the for­mer Four Points by Sher­a­ton marks a re­turn to Sydney for the Regency brand and gives Hy­att the big­gest ho­tel in the city.

It will be ex­panded fur­ther later this month when Hy­att opens an ad­join­ing 24-storey tower, adding 220 rooms to the ex­ist­ing 600.

The ho­tel will also open a rooftop bar, which to­gether with the re­cently opened ball­rooms caps off a $250 mil­lion re­de­vel­op­ment of the prop­erty.

Hy­att Ho­tels Cor­po­ra­tion Group Pres­i­dent Asia Pa­cific David Udell (pic­tured) said the ho­tel was the largest venue in the city able to host ma­jor events and their del­e­gates all un­der one roof.

“Hy­att has made a ma­jor com­mit­ment to the con­fer­ence mar­ket,” Udell said.

“With this fa­cil­ity we can now use our global re­sources to cul­ti­vate that busi­ness and ser­vice it well.

“We want a larger per­cent­age of MICE cus­tomers be­cause we have this in­cred­i­ble fa­cil­ity.”

Udell said the tim­ing of the ho­tel’s re­launch was ideal, com­ing at the same time as the open­ing of the In­ter­na­tional Con­ven­tion Cen­tre Sydney, across Dar­ling Har­bour. “The new cen­tre will bring more fo­cus on con­fer­ences and is an op­por­tu­nity to bring more peo­ple to the area - and good neigh­bours are very im­por­tant,” he said.
