The former David Jones building at the Hunter Street Mall will be home to QT Newcastle from 2020.

The journey of Event Hospitality’s QT Hotels brand began on the Gold Coast seven years ago and in that time, it has grown to nine properties across Australia and New Zealand.

It has become one of the most sought-after brands for owners in Australia thanks, thanks to it’s quirkiness, style, food and beverage and wicked imagination when it comes to events.

QT Hotels certainly knows how to throw a party, evident by the exclusive soiree thrown recently at QT Perth. Seeking to thrill guests as much as surprise and delight, QT oozes dark charm, sophistication and an element of hedonistic intrigue – all things that have helped the brand become a hit with travellers and developers alike.

With new properties to come in Parramatta, Adelaide and Newcastle, the QT philosophy is set to grow further beyond the capital cities and into the suburbs.

In this exclusive video, HM Editor-In-Chief, James Wilkinson, sits down with Event Hospitality Director of Hotels and Resorts, Norman Arundel, to discuss the QT brand and its phenomenal rise.
