Sea World Resort Australia announces plans for conference centre

Sea World Resort & Water Park on the Gold Coast of Australia will open a multi-million pound conference centre in 2015 for 1,000 people.

The venue will offer 750m2 of space, dividable into three sections, and will be in addition to the existing six conference venues currently in operation at Sea World Resort.

The facility will include the latest audio-visual equipment, a Porte Cochere with vehicle access, as well as a large Al Fresco style veranda ideal for coffee breaks, lunches and cocktail receptions.

Sea World Resort has 402 rooms, allowing delegates to stay on site. There are also four restaurants and two bar areas.

Sea World Resort & Water Park general manager Bikash Randhawa said: "This will be a unique conferencing venue in a world class location. We have been offering exceptional mid-size conferences for many years and this new centre will allow us to do business on a much larger scale. It will reinforce our position as one of the conference leaders on the Gold Coast.

"Also, thanks to our sister properties, we will also offer partners and families of delegates some amazing experiences and package events at Warner Bros. Movie World, Sea World, Wet’n’Wild, Paradise Country and Australian Outback Spectacular as part of their conferencing at the resort."
