    Crowne Plaza announces the opening of the new Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley Conference and Events Centre, providing the largest and most comprehensive regional conference and exhibition facility north of Sydney.The new Conference and Events Centre will diversify the region’s current business events mix by drawing in larger event markets and industries into the region. After much research into the growing demand for large scale gourmet experiences within Australia, clients now have the opportunity to turn their next event into a gourmet food and wine affair. Bringing the best of the Hunter Valley into the fully integrated Resort, Harvest Hunter is the Resort’s new signature events package. Harvest Hunter brings interactive live cooking stations, live entertainment, locally recognised chef’s sharing their favourite recipes, the region’s greatest wineries showcasing award winning wines and local producers sharing fresh breads, cheeses, chocolates and much more in an outdoor festival affair setting.

    Robert Coates, General Manager, Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley says: “The new Conference and Events Centre will position the Hunter Valley as a leading Australian conference and events destination. Offering guests the latest technology and a light-filled design in a state-of-the-art venue with a combined 2,000 square metres of pre-function, meeting and exhibition space coupled with a unique wine country destination. We have already received large scale group bookings for 2015 resulting in 20 percent growth in business events and many in the pipeline for 2016 – it looks set to be a very busy year for us.”

    To complement the new development, Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley has welcomed one of Australia’s largest providers of audio visual equipment, Scene Change, to manage the growing demand of sophisticated and advanced audio visual needs, putting the Resort in the forefront of business events.

    “The technical installation is at the same level as the best of Australia’s convention centres, with high-end Barco projectors and sophisticated digital controls. Clients will get the welcoming, relaxed Hunter conference experience without having to compromise their production values,” said Scene Change co-founder, Ian Whitworth.
