rsz_langham-hotel-grand-foyer-_1680-945Langham, Sydney took out a global award in London last month as Most Prestigious Global Press Conference Venue; winning ahead of New York Palace and Raffles Dubai.

This win comes after a strong repositioning year for the hotel since re-opening doors after a grand transformation, with a strong push to convert high level celebrity clientele towards the hotel by running one of Australia’s most impressive VIP and media programs, which has proven very successful amongst the A-List crowd.

“We wanted to reposition as Sydney’s luxury, celebrity and fashion hotel and this global award absolutely acknowledges our efforts this year with very high profile media events” commented General Manager, Sonia Lefevre. 

Prestigious Star Awards, the only global luxury venue award program currently operating, selects 20 venues from a long list of 2,000 as voted by event bookers and experts from around the world. The program celebrates the quality, performance and reputation of the world’s best venues qualified to host the most memorable events with all venues being verified by Prestigious Venue Ambassadors in each continent. 

“We congratulate The Langham, Sydney for demonstrating all the assets of a world-class press conference venue; a private oasis in the heart of the city for A-List names with bespoke spaces set up specifically for media events and a VIP program written by a PR Director with 15-years PR experience with high level talent, makes this hotel undoubtedly an international leader for major press events” said Jessamie Dunton-Rose, Director of Prestigious Venues this month. 

“This was further confirmed by the high calibre, A-List names that have been at the hotel in the last year for press junkets and press conferences; Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett, Khloe Kardashian, Gigi Hadid, Dita Von Teese, Drew Barrymore, Toni Collette and Robbie Williams to name but a few”. 

“Congratulations on achieving excellence in your first year of re-opening and on becoming the media venue of choice in Australia,” commented Ms. Dunton-Rose. 

This award comes after a number of incredible wins in 2015, in particularly the prestigious US Robb Report listing for Top 100 Hotels In The World ,which saw The Langham, Sydney as the only property for Australia and New Zealand listed.

“Langham Sydney is well and truly establishing itself as Sydney’s most exclusive address when it comes to high level clientele; and on a very international level at that” remarked Lefevre.
