The Stars align for a VIP celebration

Our Erin recently forced to overcome her nerves, was whisked away by helicopter to a top secret event in the Yarra Valley 

15 special guests representing highly regarded meeting & event companies enjoyed the elaborate VIP event, hosted by The Star Entertainment Group on 23 February 2016, in conjunction with the Asia-Pacific Incentives & Meetings Expo (AIME) 

The red-carpet rolled out, guests dined on a 5 course degustation menu at ezard, Levantine Hill... a gastronomic partnership between hatted chef Teage Ezard and Levantine Hill Estate.

Chef Ezard personally introduced each dish which was paired with matching wine, including a Wagyu beef, nettle, onion cream, potato terrine w/native pepperberry jus.

Representatives from the Group’s three properties including The Star Sydney, Jupiters Gold Coast and Treasury Casino & Hotel Brisbane joined the exclusive list of guests.

John Autelitano, General Manager Hotels, The Star Sydney says “this VIP Experience is reflective of The Star’s vision to provide world-class entertainment offerings and their commitment to providing excellence to all guests.”

“We wanted to showcase the exciting and memorable options The Star properties can offer the business events industry and we think we did this expertly. Feedback from the evening has been highly positive and speaks to the dedication of our teams who crafted the idea and pulled the event together,” said Mr Autelitano.

Erin comments “I had the best time and was blown away by what an amazing evening it was. I felt so honoured and very lucky to have attended such a beautiful evening. Absolutely everything was done perfectly, the team did such an amazing job and should be proud!”

Following dinner, a surprise appearance by Kate Ceberano who’d been flown in for the special event wowed guests, before they were whisked back to their Melbourne CBD hotels in Maseratis, BMWs and Rolls Royces.
