THE Hyatt Regency Perth showcased its recently renovated Plaza Ballroom to high-profile convention organisers at a special luncheon last week.
The Hyatt showed off its new-look room and banquet menu to about 60 Perth event managers, including Events Edge managing director Debbie-Ann Scott, who said most Perth venues were keen to show off their wares to build relationships and win business from local event organisers.
“It has become a very competitive environment and they are all looking for their lions share,” she said.
Determining a function venue required a good knowledge of the type of delegates attending, with consideration to be paid to accommodation needs, amount of leisure time, budget, and catering requirements, Ms Scott said.
“Catering is essential. What the Hyatt did the other day showed that they are not being complacent with their food. We all felt like we had a real food experience,” she said.
The Hyatt showcased its new banquet menu, which included dry-ice steaming teapots as sorbet dishes and innovative entrée presentations and food. Ms Scott said having attractive smaller venues – in addition to a larger room – such as the Plaza room were essential for conferences.
