Crowne Plaza Terrigal in partnership with Australasian conference booking website, shortlead.com.au, recently invited a group of conference organisers to cash in their golden tickets and enter a world of pure imagination during a famil of the hotel hosted by Willy Wonka himself.
Showcasing the hotel’s conference and events offerings, the famil saw more than 15 conference organisers from Sydney transported to a magical world of sweets, reminiscent of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.
Guests were met by Willy Wonka’s mischievous Oompa Loompas, who lead a site inspection of Crowne Plaza Terrigal, including the recently-refurbished luxurious guest rooms featuring oceanview balconies. The group then entered the hotel’s beach-facing atrium in Seasalt restaurant to be greeted by an array of colourful handmade sweets and frozen lolly cocktails, which they enjoyed while overlooking views of Terrigal Beach.
Crowne Plaza Terrigal’s executive chef Peter Boys-Smith was the brains behind the smorgasbord of sweets, leading the hotel’s culinary team to produce handmade items of honeycomb pieces, marshmallows, mini chocolate brownies and raspberry and white chocolate ganache macaroons.
Also part of the famil experience was a tour around Terrigal in a purple Hummer. The group stopped off at the Terrigal Haven and took a stroll on the newly-constructed ‘yellow-brick-round walk’ – a path highlighting the coastal vantage points along the way.
The experience concluded with a night’s stay at Crowne Plaza Terrigal, to give conference organisers a well-rounded idea of how the hotel can bring professional interactions to life through events, conferences and incentives.
The Willy Wonka theme can be recreated at Crowne Plaza Terrigal for events and conferences of varying sizes.
