The Star Gold Coast has been named as the new home of the Australian television industry’s biggest night of celebration, the TV WEEK Logie awards.
The Logies will be hosted at The Star’s newly redeveloped integrated resort from next July under a landmark deal to bring the glittering black-tie event to Queensland. The Broadbeach property has undergone a massive transformation as part of an ongoing capital investment program.
Awaiting Logies guests will be a newly renovated five-star hotel, refurbished event facilities, multi-award winning restaurants and bars, and the centrepiece of the redevelopment – a luxurious suite hotel with stunning rooftop restaurant, bar and infinity pool that will open within the next few months. The Star Entertainment Group managing director Queensland Geoff Hogg, said he was thrilled Queensland had secured the event and looked forward to hosting it.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to showcase the quality of The Star Gold Coast, and the exceptional climate of the region,” he said.
“Having just experienced another warm winter, the move to Queensland will provide those involved with the TV WEEK Logies the chance to escape the chill of the south.
“Next year’s TV WEEK Logies will showcase the transformation of the Gold Coast in recent years. As a city, we aren’t afraid to think outside the square and leverage our unique location and lifestyle.”
Mr Hogg said in addition to the five-star accommodation already available, the luxury suite hotel tower – to be completed before the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games – is likely to be a popular choice for Logies guests.
“It has been designed to offer Queensland’s most luxurious accommodation with spacious suites featuring only the finest finishes, and the very best in service,” he said.
Mr Hogg said the tower’s rooftop restaurant, bar and infinity pool would also make the perfect location for post Logies celebrations.
“With sweeping views of the Gold Coast skyline and an indoor-outdoor design, the new rooftop restaurant and bar is sure to leave a lasting impression,” he said.
“Through the recent redevelopment, we have embraced our coastal lifestyle, opened up the existing property to celebrate our sub-tropical climate and created an array of premium experiences that are reflection of the Gold Coast coming of age.
“The exclusive rooftop venue has been designed to make the most of Queensland’s balmy weather – even in the winter months – so what better place to host a night of fun and celebration than in the heart of one of Australia’s most iconic destinations.”
The Logies will follow the hosting of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games – of which The Star is a major partner – in April.
“It’s certainly an exciting time for Queensland and for the Gold Coast securing these major national and international events,” Mr Hogg said.
“2018 is going to be a fantastic year for the Gold Coast – we are ready to welcome people from around the world and showcase the very best of our City.”
