WESTIN COOLUM EVENTS PUSH
THE Sunshine Coast is gearing up to make its way back into the competitive pool of top business events destinations following approval of the Yaroomba Beach Project.
The development will create a new coastal village just ten minutes from Sunshine Coast Airport, encompassing the Westin Coolum Resort & Spa, as well as serviced apartments and extensive conference and recreation facilities.
“The Westin is an internationally recognised fivestar hotel brand, renowned for its business events capabilities,” said Simon Latchford, ceo of Visit Sunshine Coast.
“Its scheduled opening in 2021 will complement the opening of our upgraded international airport and will help us fulfil our aim of becoming one of the most significant regional business events destinations in Australia.”
Latchford added that the new Westin resort would “play a fundamental role in attracting domestic and international business to the Sunshine Coast,” as well as high-yielding conferences and incentives.
The resort will have over 1,000m2 of combined function and meeting space to cater for up to 800 delegates in a range of venues including four breakout meeting rooms, a function room, and hall that is 500m2, expandable to 800m2.
Conference and incentive groups will also be able to take part in a wide selection of team-building, health and wellness activities.
