Business Events News - - Front Page -

THE Shake­speare Prop­erty Group plans to in­vest $10 mil­lion in up­grades to the re­sort and con­ven­tion cen­tre at Novo­tel Twin Waters Re­sort, fol­low­ing its $100 mil­lion pur­chase of the Queens­land prop­erty (BEN 03 & 12 Oct). The new-build cen­tre

(pic­tured), lo­cated at the Novo­tel Twin Wa­ter Re­sort, will of­fer four meet­ing and event spa­ces across 1,600m2 and cater for 2,000 del­e­gates the­atre style or 1,000 ban­quet style.

The con­ven­tion cen­tre will be at­tached to the Wandiny Pav­il­lion, an ex­ist­ing con­fer­ence space lo­cated on the site, which can host up to 1,200 del­e­gates the­atre style, or 75 ex­hi­bi­tion booths.

This takes the con­ven­tion cen­tre’s over­all ca­pac­ity to 3,400 peo­ple.

Queens­land Tourism In­dus­try De­vel­op­ment Min­is­ter Kate Jones said the Novo­tel Twin Waters Re­sort project was a sign tourism on the Sun­shine Coast was go­ing from strength to strength.

“There is a lot hap­pen­ing for tourism on the Sun­shine Coast, with this ma­jor in­vest­ment and the com­ple­tion of the Sun­shine Coast In­ter­na­tional Air­port up­grade in 2020 - there’s plenty to look for­ward to for lo­cals”.
