Crown­ing mo­ment

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - FRONT PAGE - Aaron Cor­lett

CROWN Perth is look­ing to cap­i­talise on Perth’s grow­ing rep­u­ta­tion as an events cap­i­tal af­ter it launched the Crown Ball­room.

THE Crown Ball­room has been of­fi­cially launched as the com­pany seeks to cap­i­talise on Perth’s grow­ing rep­u­ta­tion as an events cap­i­tal with its lat­est ven­ture Crown Tow­ers.

Crown Ho­tels global sales se­nior vice pres­i­dent Kylie Burch­more said Crown Tow­ers Perth was de­signed with a clear vi­sion in mind: to be­come Perth’s lead­ing events space and one of the top des­ti­na­tions in Aus­tralia.

“With Tourism Re­search Aus­tralia telling us that Perth at­tracted over 54,000 con­fer­ence and busi­ness del­e­gates over the last five years, we saw the op­por­tu­nity to cap­i­talise on this growth and pro­vide an im­pres­sive event space that ri­vals not only (venues) in Western Aus­tralia, but venues across the eastern seaboard as well,” she said.

“We have taken the stan­dard to a whole new level and are con­fi­dent that this new of­fer will help at­tract even more busi­ness – from in­ter­state and in­ter­na­tional mar­kets – to Perth.”

As one of the largest con­fer­ence spa­ces in Perth, Crown Ball­room has been built to em­u­late Crown’s fa­mous Pal­la­dium Ball­room in Mel­bourne, which is home to large-scale pres­ti­gious events such as the Brown­low Medal pre­sen­ta­tion and The Lo­gies.

The venue can ac­com­mo­date gala events for up to 1500 del­e­gates, from large-scale in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ences, through to lo­cal busi­ness events.

Com­bined with the rest of the Crown Perth re­sort of­fer­ings, Crown Events and Con­fer­ences can now cater for up to 3500 del­e­gates at one time.

The new Crown Ball­room can seat up to 1500 peo­ple at one time.
