Last night The Sebel Pier One Sydney announced the winner of their inaugural Business with Class competition in an intimate soiree at Water @ Pier One.
Winning two business class tickets to anywhere on the Etihad Airways network, Jennifer Sellers from Sonic Healthcare was in complete shock as her name was revealed on the big screen and announced by Director of Sales & Marketing for the hotel, David Lowe and General Manager for Etihad Airways in Australia & New Zealand, Luisa Pastrello.
Jennifer, who regularly books business class travel but has never flown business class herself, said she would take her daughter on a world-wide trip and said she had already been planning a holiday at the end of the year, the only thing left to book was the flights.
Launched at the hotel’s unveiling of its new conference facility, Water @ Pier One in November 2012, the Business with Class competition saw anyone who spent $10,000 or more holding a conference or event at Water @ Pier One, go into the draw to win 2 Pearl Business Class return tickets to anywhere in the world flying Etihad Airways.
Over the 7 month campaign, the hotel registered 310 eligible entries, booked over 4700 room nights and made more than $2.4 million in revenue.
