At The Langham, Gold Coast collaborations exemplify these principles. Partnerships with luxury lifestyle brands like Bulgari, Harper’s Bazaar and Veuve Clicquot have resonated with our clientele, as they embody the sophistication and refined elegance synonymous with our brand. By aligning with partners whose ethos mirror ours, we’ve ensured seamless integration and heightened brand positioning.

The Bulgari afternoon tea resonated with our affluent and aspirational clientele whilst talking to one of our brand pillars – the famous Langham afternoon tea. The Veuve Clicquot poolside pop-up was the perfect embodiment of resort-life in the peak of summer for our leisure guests. And finally, the Harper’s Bazaar Australia x The Langham, Gold Coast $100,000 wedding giveaway is a grand nod to launching luxury weddings at the hotel as a PR activation but with a clear focus on converting leads.
