MELBOURNE: Australia’s international hotel company, TFE Hotels, has launched a new and improved 2020 Events with Benefits program* at AIME. Notably different in this year’s program is the range of new and higher value benefits including upgraded delegate day packages and complimentary accommodation for residential conferences.
Senior Director of Sales, Shahnaz Bakhshay said the Events with Benefits program (EwB) had been designed to recognise and reward loyal clients that continually choose multiple TFE Hotels – Adina Hotels, Vibe Hotels, Travelodge Hotels, Rendezvous Hotels or TFE Collection Hotel properties including The Calile (Brisbane), The Savoy on Little Collins and Hotels – for residential and non-residential meetings, incentives, conferencing, corporate launches and events.
“The MICE segment is an essential part of our hotel business, so it’s important that our clients know we value our relationship with them and their repeat business, and that we will go the extra mile to ensure they have the best possible conferencing solution with the greatest amount of flexibility.”
Under the 2020 program, PCOs and Conference Bookings register online and can immediately start reaping the benefits from conferences booked from 1 Feb onwards.
“Rewards are calculated on the expected value of that event across three tiers – $1500 and over; $3000 and over, and $5000 and over,” she said. “Plus, the all-important high-speed WIFI is another value add for every delegate.”
Benefits include complimentary room nights, delegate day packages, upgrades to Barista coffee, discounts off invoicing, food and beverage credits, and credits towards future conferencing.
“As an added incentive for PCOs and conference bookers, TFE Hotels is offering four ‘Weekends Away’ prizes at either Vibe Hotel Darling Harbour, Adina Apartment Hotel Brisbane or the Vibe Hotel Melbourne. The prize includes two night’s accommodation for two guests and breakfast for two each day.”
According to Bakhshay, TFE Hotels’ diverse and expanding portfolio is a key element to the hotel management company’s success in the MICE industry.
The 206-room Vibe Melbourne boasts contemporary meetings facilities that are flooded with daylight and show-stopping floor-to-ceiling views of the Yarra River and beyond from its top-level penthouses. The hotel’s onsite restaurant provides a range of healthy and delicious catering options.
Rounding out TFE Hotels’ new hotels in Melbourne in 2020 is Adina Melbourne Southbank offers strong conferencing solutions with three versatile function spaces that cater for up to 70 delegates, theatre-style and apartment-style hotel rooms close to the Melbourne Convention Centre. The hotel boasts several sustainability features including the use of cross-laminated timber throughout.
Likewise, Adina Apartment Hotel West Melbourne offers apartment-style rooms with full hotel service in a new lifestyle precinct that’s within easy walking distance of the nearby Convention Centre.
In Sydney, TFE Hotels’ flagship Adina Sydney on George is situated in one of the CBD’s most desirable downtown locations. Whilst the refurbished Vibe Sydney, Vibe North Sydney and CBD and regional Adina Apartment Hotels, and Travelodges continue to service the market well.
In Canberra, a new flagship Adina – Adina Canberra Constitution Place is conveniently close to the Canberra Convention Centre for convention delegate accommodation and is also superbly situated for leisure guests.
Adelaide will see the introduction of its first next generation Vibe Hotel as well as a Travelodge whilst in Tasmania, the 142-room Vibe Hobart is nearing completion and expected to open on 1 July in the historic waterfront area, making it incredibly attractive for visiting corporates. Onsite conferencing space caters for up to 200 across two rooms and pays homage to the Tasmanian landscape in design.
In Queensland, The Calile continues to shine in the conferencing space, whilst TFE Hotels’ flagship Adina Apartment Hotel Brisbane (which opened late last year) offers private meeting space on the mezzanine of the nearby Donna Chang restaurant and an array of heritage rooms with original features and contemporary accommodation with views to the Brisbane River for smaller events and incentives. The superbly restored hotel is within easy walking distance of CBD conferencing venues and Brisbane Conference and Exhibition Centre across the River.
Across the Tasman, The Hotel Britomart joins the Adina Apartment Hotel Britomart and a brand-new Travelodge Wynyard Quarter in the city’s expanding waterfront precincts. The 5 Green Star 104-room Hotel Britomart will open in July and uses some of the precinct’s oldest warehouse buildings that have been lovingly restored as well as Sky Terrace Suites, for smaller conferencing solutions.
According to Bakhshay and her sales team, TFE Hotels is also looking at existing hotels and will commence refurbishment programs across the country – including the perennially popular Adina Apartment Hotel Sydney Town Hall which has increased the speed of its lifts by 100% and is also in the final stages of a refurbishment – all of which are added incentives for corporates to book a stay.
