In a brilliant show of its event creativity and venue flexibility, the events and banquet team at The Star Grand Gold Coast turned its ballroom into a pretty garden, complete with hanging plants and a large vertical garden that backed its bar.
The ballroom was the Corporate Hospitality Suite during the recent 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, an exclusive venue reserved for who’s who in the sponsors pool and Games.
Quality nosh was all for guests’ pickings at live food stations, including two very charming charcuterie and cheese stalls that were dressed like the most enthusiastic participants at a local farmer’s market.
Chic furniture – gold wire-frame dining chairs and bar stools and oversized couches – completed the look at the Corporate Hospitality Suite and made the venue a functional, living space.
As an Official Partner of the Games, The Star Grand Gold Coast created 12-days of extensive entertainment at various locations across the property, the most impressive of which was the Celebration Lawn where enormous TV screens broadcasted sports events, live music was performed all evening to give off a festival vibe, and appearances from medal-winning athletes were promised.
