ith the unveiling of Four Points by Sheraton Sydney, Darling Harbour’s new
convention centre on June 1 – home to 3700 square metres of unique,
waterside meeting and event space, including two, vast pillarless ballrooms and
20 flexible meeting rooms - the hotel’s general manager David Fraser said they
are excited to be launching Sydney’s largest redeveloped hotel, and to play such as important role
in the evolution and ongoing success of Sydney’s business and events landscape.
Further plans in the AUD$12 million development will include a new rooftop bar and executive
lounge offering panoramic views of Darling Harbour. Slated to open in the fourth quarter of 2016 and
extending across two levels, the lower level executive lounge will offer exclusive facilities to premium
in-house guests only, and the rooftop bar will offer a new city-centre lifestyle venue open to all.
August will see the launch of 222 new guest rooms. Housed in the third tower development,
the additional guest rooms will take the hotel’s inventory up to 892, thus addressing the
shortage of accommodation in Sydney.
Driving innovation at ATP
Remarking on the dynamics of Sydney’s ongoing development, ATP’s director of sales &
marketing, Ruby Chronis said, “Sydney is a city on the move and people often forget that
advances can’t be made without the commitment and enthusiasm of great individuals, within
great teams, within great organisations”.
“It is a dynamic time to be doing business in Sydney. In recent years there has been a solid
focus on driving innovation, technology and facilities to further enhance the Emerald City’s
standing as a true global business destination, and at Australian Technology Park Conference
Centre we are playing our part.”
Thrilled with the advances the unique ATP site has made in events delivery over the years,
hosting more than 500 events a year with a strong representation of repeat and international
customers she added, “It’s an immense but incredibly rewarding challenge. ATP has always
been a vastly successful event venue – we have a versatile backdrop and the flexibility to host
any sized function, but it’s our service excellence that really entices our clients.” m
