e-awards 2007 Event Venue of the Year – winner Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove Located on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove is highly regarded as a premier meetings and events destination. Two outstanding events held at the property in 2007 were the Lexus Legends event and the Classic Week event. The Lexus Legends event was conducted in conjunction with Stanton Golf Management and Lexus for their nationwide clientele. The annual event has been held at Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove since 2002. Two-hundred high-end guests attended in 2007. A variety of unique function settings were created to provide guests with that “wow” factor during event dinner functions. Major outdoor theming included the construction of a floating stage on the Lagoon Beach pool. This had not been done before and was challenging but highly effective. Special menus were created for the dinners and oval tables were brought in rather than having the basic 10-person rounds used as standard banquet events. Co-ordination of the celebrity golf day was also pivotal to the success, with Hyatt staff assisting with planning and co-ordination, and ensuring smooth transfers to and from the golf courses. The annual Classic Week event was conducted for Harte Management. This concert/leisure event included coordination of on-site and off- site activities and events. From the finals of the Classic World Cup Golf Tournament, a tennis challenge hosted by Samantha Stosur, a celebrity cricket match, live entertainment at the onsite OZ Rock Café/nightclub, and a charity dinner to raise funds for the George Gregan Foundation, Project 88 and The Adam Scott Foundation, this event was Sanctuary Cove’s biggest event of the year. Guests to these events ranged in size from 150 to 800, and included some of Australia’s top entertainers, sporting stars and celebrities. The McArthurs Ballroom was transformed into the Oz Rock Nightclub – a replica of a club operating in Sydney in the 1970s. A major fireworks display took place over the Lagoon Beach Pool following the live outdoor concert. Off with a bang at the Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove. 50 mice.net 50 mice.net
