Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney has confirmed renovation of the hotel’s largest event area, the Grand Ballroom.
Renovations will begin in June 2013 and run throughout the winter, during the hotel’s low season, with expected completion in October 2013.
According to the property, the physical location of the Grand Ballroom, on the lower floor of the hotel, means there will be minimal disruption to the hotel’s operations.
“We are very excited about this renovation and the prospect of a completely new venue to offer our Sydney clientele and guests,” said Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney’s General Manager Franz Donhauser. “We can expect to see a very chic event space with advanced technology, unique ceiling design and an increased capacity, which can be customised for various events.
“We foresee great potential for large business and social events in Sydney, with many international conferences and global events coming to Sydney over the next few years [and] we look forward to launching Sydney’s newest contemporary ballroom later this year.”
Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney has 17 other event spaces, including Altitude Restaurant on level 36 with capacity to cater for up to 120 people for a seated event.
