AccorHotels has signed a partnership with TEG and ‘TORUK The First Flight’ by Cirque du Soleil, which will be touring Australia and New Zealand for the first time from September 2017 and performing close to 100 shows.
As the Official Accommodation Partner for Cirque du Soleil’s Australia and New Zealand tour, Le Club AccorHotels and Accor Plus loyalty members will receive access to pre-sale tickets, VIP opportunities and money-can’t-buy experiences which will include meet and greets and behind-the-scenes tours. Hotels will also be offering unique animations and benefits to guests when the show is in town.
AccorHotels Pacific Chief Operating Officer, Simon McGrath, said: “We are incredibly excited to be partnering with TEG who are well recognised for their entertainment portfolio and TORUK The First Flight by Cirque du Soleil who are world renowned for spectacular performances and entertaining millions around the globe.
“Our partnership is particularly exciting for our Le Club AccorHotels and Accor Plus loyalty members and we are pleased to be rewarding them with bespoke experiences for such a thrilling event.
“We pride ourselves on our ability to provide a wide ranging portfolio of hotels in prime locations and a distribution framework which allows us to activate strategic partnerships through our loyalty and booking platforms, and to that we thank TEG for their support and we look forward to opening night,” he said.
Inspired by James Cameron’s record-breaking film AVATAR, ‘TORUK The First Flight’ by Cirque du Soleil will make its Australian debut at Brisbane’s Entertainment Centre in October before heading to Sydney (Qudos Bank Arena), Melbourne (Rod Laver Arena) and then Adelaide (Entertainment Centre).
Through a riveting fusion of cutting-edge visuals, puppetry and stagecraft buoyed by a soaring cinematic score, Cirque du Soleil applies its unique signature style to James Cameron’s imaginary world and “makes the bond” between two kindred artistic visions that capture the imagination.
