Business Development Manager – MICE (Contract)
About the business and the role
Soon to be complete, a $15M refurbishment and redevelopment has totally transformed the property. On completion of the rooms refurbishment at Mount Lofty House and construction of the six-star Sequoia Suites at Mount Lofty House, the property will be one of Australia’s best high-end business retreats and boutique hotels. Add a 3 Chef Hat restaurant, vineyards, 30 acres of gardens, day spa and cocktail bar, all perched on Mount Lofty Summit, only 15 minutes from Adelaide CBD and it simply sounds too good to be true.
Love the thought of promoting this amazing new addition to Australian hospitality scene to the MICE industry in Sydney and Melbourne? This hotel will sell itself once people understand the quality of the product and experiences on offer onsite and in the Adelaide Hills.
