Mantra Group has impressed thousands of Chinese delegates visiting the Gold Coast this month as part of the largest business event ever held in the iconic Queensland city.

More than half of the 6,000 delegates from one of China’s largest personal health care companies, Infinitus China, stayed in Mantra Group’s self-contained serviced apartments rather than traditional hotel rooms and were very impressed with their stay.

Luke Moran, Executive Director of Sales, Marketing and Distribution for Mantra Group said the Infinitus Group had been fantastic for the local economy.

“The Gold Coast has become an iconic destination for international visitors and in particular the Chinese market,” said Mr Moran.

“The Commonwealth Games has helped to boost the local tourism economy and ensure the Gold Coast is recognised as Australia’s newest hub for international events.

“We’ve now proven our ability to be competitive on the world stage in holding major sporting, cultural and business events.

“Mantra Group is proud to be working collaboratively with Destination Gold Coast and Tourism Australia to be able to bring large groups here like the Infinitus Group to showcase what the Gold Coast has to offer.

“Our self-contained serviced apartments allow our guests to feel at home, when they’re away from home, and we are seeing these room types becoming increasingly popular.”

Linsa Shi, Director of Overseas Training for Infinitus China said the Company is glad to be working with Mantra Group to accommodate their delegates on the Gold Coast.

“We are very pleased to be here on the Gold Coast, working with Mantra Group to accommodate thousands of our delegates in self-contained serviced apartments,” said Ms Shi.

“With more than half of our delegates staying in Mantra Group’s serviced apartments, we have seen very high satisfaction levels compared to previous events.”

Luke Moran said he hopes Mantra Group can work with Infinitus China on bringing further events to Australia in the future.
