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.
