Award-winning luxury resort Chateau Élan at The Vintage is taking its MICE business to a new level by appointing Sydney-based Tourism Portfolio as its representative in the Australia market.
General Manager Joe Spagnolo says the five-star property in NSW’s Hunter Valley region already enjoys strong support from meeting and conference clients.
“Many of our MICE guests return year after year, and their support is invaluable,”
“Working with Tourism Portfolio I’m confident we will now expand our presence ever further, as meeting and conference guests from across Australia experience our outstanding facilities and exceptional customer service.”
Located just two hours’ drive from Sydney, Chateau Élan at The Vintage is set among the Hunter Valley’s spectacular vineyards and offers state-of-the-art meetings facilities catering for up to 200 guests, along with 20 super-luxury spa suites and a series of private lifestyle villas.
The resort also incorporates a spa with 17 treatment rooms, and the award-winning ‘Vintage’ golf course, designed by the legendary Greg Norman.
Chateau Élan at The Vintage was recently awarded the prestigious title of ‘Conference Hotel of the Year’ at the 2014 Tourism Accommodation Australia (NSW) Awards for Excellence – a category that included nominees representing some of the country’s top luxury properties and iconic five-star CBD hotels.
Tourism Portfolio Managing Director Donna Kessler says Chateau Élan at The Vintage is an outstanding addition to the company’s collection of luxury Australian properties, which also includes NSW’s Byron at Byron Resort and Spa and Emirates Wolgan Valley Resort and Spa in NSW’s Blue Mountains.
“The reason Chateau Élan at The Vintage is one of Australia’s most celebrated properties is simple – it delivers world-class products and services that consistently exceed clients’ expectations,” says Kessler. “We are excited to be working with such a unique property.”
Chateau Élan’s Onsite Sales and Marketing Manager, Kim Waterhouse, says that during a 12-year career working as a buyer in the MICE industry she gained first-hand experience of Tourism Portfolio’s customer-focused approach.
“Donna and her team are true professionals who share the same business ethic as Chateau Élan,” says Waterhouse. “They are a perfect match and I know our clients are in the best hands”.
