From glam to kooky at Brisbane’s Howard Smith Wharves
By Brad Foster
Those 400 industry folk at last year’s Meetings & Events Australia conference will fondly remember the wonderful night at the new and stunning Howard Smith Wharves with views of the Story Bridge and perched below the cliffs of Kangaroo Point.

Kiroro Mountain Resort welcomes back groups
Kiroro Mountain Resort, a development located in the heart of Kiroro, is welcoming small business groups and corporate travellers back with experiences that highlight its alpine location.
The development consists of a Sheraton hotel, a Tribute Portfolio hotel and the luxurious Yu Kiroro, and is experiencing increased interest from small business groups. The spacious environment allows for activities with social distancing, and is ideal for a wide array of team-building exercises. Groups have the option of meeting on a hill, in a soccer field, in a forest or in one of the development’s restaurants. Of course, there are also plenty of opportunities to ski.
Together, the accommodation offerings boast 500 guest rooms.

Renovated event space for Sofitel Brisbane Central
Brisbane’s original internationally-branded hotel has some exciting news for event planners. A newly-renovated function space is now open and ready for use.
The 240 sqm space incorporates the Lyon 1 and Lyon 2 rooms and features a retractable wall and audio visual displays at either end of the room. The space has natural lighting which filters through the large windows that span the entire room, however setting the mood can be achieved with dynamic lighting and blackout blinds.
In addition, Concorde, Bastille, St Germain and the exterior walls of the hotel’s level two conferencing space have been refurbished and elevated to align with the look and feel of Lyon.
