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.




Mount Lofty House was originally built in 1852 as the summer residence of Arthur Hardy, a prominent statesman of his time. Today the property is owned by two prominent hoteliers who see themselves as custodians of the property and have worked over the past ten years to realise their vision for the property. The team is passionate, loves to beat challenges, and will stop at nothing to realise their goals. Old fashioned hospitality is central to everything we do. The hotel is managed as a franchise property and branded as part of the MGallery by Sofitel collection.
