Sydney, Australia (PRWEB) February 20, 2013
Rydges World Square opens its doors to one of the largest conference and events centres in Sydney’s central business district at the end of February. The new 600sqm Sydney conference venue boasts facilities twice the size of the previous area, catering for 500 delegates or seating 380 guests banquet style.
The development is a result of owner Dr. Jerry Schwartz and his ongoing efforts to inject capital into his hotel assets, a sign of his confidence in the New South Wales tourism sector. The facility is expecting strong growth in the number of meeting, incentives, conferences and exhibitions held in Sydney city.
Dr. Jerry Schwartz says, “We saw an opportunity for a large business and leisure conference facility in the CBD, a need for a new venue with state-of-the-art equipment, service and a destination offering for interstate or international travelers.”
The new conference centre provides access to the latest audio visual equipment, sound and lighting, broadband and wireless internet as well as a full catering service with flexible options to suit all businesses and delegates. This full conference service complements the existing 452 accommodation rooms, Square Bar, Sphere Restaurant and being so centrally located, Rydges World Square is only 15 minutes from Sydney’s Domestic Airport by train.
The new conference venue design boasts floor-to-ceiling double glazed windows, increasing the natural light and opening the space up with a contemporary colour scheme. Nicknamed the Bull Ring, the room revolves around a glass atrium overlooking World Square, where the commanding, mythological bull sculpture resides below. The modernized design provides an inviting space for guests to enjoy the best parts of Sydney.
The Rydges group plans to build on its positive reputation for service and first-class facilities while ensuring the property remains at the forefront of current hospitality and industry trends.
