By The Star Sydney, 22 February, 2013

Showcasing the home of spectacular events, the sales team from The Star, Sydney’s premier event and entertainment destination, travelled to Canberra to play host to over 50 exclusive invitees at the National Gallery of Australia on Wednesday 20 February 2013.
Event planners, event organisers and a select group of local media gathered to hear about The Star and the additional opportunities available with the recent opening of The Star Event Centre.
Guests were given a virtual fly through of the new Event Centre and invited to Sydney to visit the venue.
Alexander Gorman, Director of Sales at The Star entertained the crowd describing the event possibilities throughout the venue including gala functions and press conferences in the new Event Centre and AGMs in the suites of Astral Towers or The Darling Hotel and Spa.
Gretchen Irvine, Project Officer – Conferences and Events, Palliative Care Australia Incorporated commented "I was appreciative of The Star Sales Team coming down to introduce the Event Centre to us. It not only showcased The Star as a great event destination, but more widely showcased the event potential of Sydney."
With government, international and local association representatives in attendance the crowd were delighted to hear about the event opportunities at The Star that support multilingual visitors from abroad.
"As a team we recognise the volume of opportunity that the Canberra events industry represents and so the chance for our team to meet personally with key industry stakeholders in Canberra and understand first hand their plans and interests for the future was invaluable," said Mr Gorman.
The exclusive showcase in Canberra, connecting with industry peers and colleagues, followed similar events hosted by The Star in Sydney and Melbourne.
