With the official launch of Hyatt Regency Sydney last month came the introduction of its 1,000-pax ballroom and the announcement of Staging Connections as its in-house event services partner.
The 892-key hotel was launched after a A$250 million (US$190.2 million) redevelopment of the former Four Points by Sheraton. Through its new partnership, it intends to “build on our commitment to delivering an enhanced customer experience for… functions, conferences and meetings”, according to general manager Malcolm Zancanaro.
The new partners worked together on a cocktail event in the hotel’s 1,000-pax Grand Ballroom, utilising AV capabilities to cast hexagon images representing the Hyatt brand and hive logo, in addition to other creative projections.
As well, the night’s aerial acrobatic performances made use of newly installed dynamic rigging points in the ballroom. Other entertainment highlights include an indigenous fusion act and music from MC, singer and radio personality, David Campbell, while kitchen stations featured a 50kg tuna carved on demand and cheese tasting.
Tim Morgan, general manager – strategic partnerships – Staging Connections, said: “The team went above and beyond, providing all audio visual, theming, digital products, projection mapping, lighting, additional room features and a special request Kombi Van dessert area.”
Hyatt Regency Sydney features 3,700m2 of meeting and event space, including two ballrooms and 21 meeting or breakout rooms.
