Sydney’s The Star takes Melbourne buyers on virtual tour


A team from Sydney’s The Star, descended on Melbourne recently, hosting a selection of event buyers and corporate event planners, at an exclusive event, to introduce The Star’s Event Centre, to open in January 2013.

Guests were treated to exclusive insights into the endless event ideas and opportunities at The Star as well as a virtual tour of the Event Centre, the crowning jewel in The Star’s multi-million dollar transformation.


The team fron Sydney’s The Star, took to Melbourne recently to provide event orga nisers with an inside look at the new Event Centre to open early 2013.

The Star’s Jakki Temple, executive director of sales, was joined by Nik Rollison, general manager of food and beverage and Andy North, director of culinary, in an informative Q&A session about the significant changes that have taken place at The Star and new opportunities which the new Event Centre offers.

Dior Coombs, business development manager, Solution Red, is particularly excited by the prospect of the Event Centre and what The Star has to offer.

“It was great to be able to meet the team in person and be given the introduction to their amazing new venue – the Event Centre. The unique food options for events that Nik and Andy both spoke about and the flexibility and functionality of the space make it a really exciting new venue option in Sydney,” said  Coombs.

For Jakki Temple, executive director of sales, the event, held at Vue Events at Rialto, was an important part of The Star team’s strategy to connect with the Melbourne market.

“Nothing beats the opportunity to meet face to face. The Melbourne events industry is constantly evolving so it was particularly important for us as a team to come down, meet the people we speak with regularly and give them a personal introduction to the Event Centre and The Star,” Temple said.

Events Centre bookings are now being taken for events occurring from January 2013 via The Star sales team.
