Travel industry professionals are invited to hear about the newest AccorHotels product, with the chance to win a new Peugeot 208 in a showcase in Sydney on September 8.

Formerly known as World of Accor, the AccorHotels Showcase 2016 will take place at Sofitel Sydney Wentworth providing travel agents, wholesalers, corporate clients, tourism partners and MICE organisers the opportunity to discover AccorHotels accommodation trends, news and stunning resorts from across the world.

Joined by AccorHotels’ executives representing more than 4100 hotels and resorts worldwide from Europe, the USA, Asia, Australia, Fiji and New Zealand, the showcase will offer an insight into the group’s new developments, products and services, alongside key industry partners and will be the first time that the group’s newest acquisitions including Fairmont, Raffles, Swissotel and One Fine Stay will be included.

Commencing with a daytime hotel exhibition from 10.30am – 3.30pm, celebrity host Melissa Doyle will be presenting great prizes and hotel giveaways throughout the day. This will be followed by a free-flow workshop and evening cocktails (6pm – 9pm), with up to 1000 guests expected throughout the day.

AccorHotels Asia Pacific chairman and CEO, Michael Issenberg, and AccorHotels chief operating officer Pacific, Simon McGrath, will be quizzed by ABC Insiders host Barrie Cassidy in a 60-minute Q&A session which will focus on industry trends, the group’s development and its 25-year history in Australia.

Melissa Doyle will be joined by Channel Seven’s Larry Emdur to present an evening of entertainment, with guests enjoying Sofitel’s five-star hospitality and a collection of Robert Oatley wines.

An event not to be missed on the industry calendar, registered visitors will also have the chance to win a brand new Peugeot 208 worth over $30,000, a trip to Hong Kong with flights thanks to Qantas and a range of other travel and accommodation prizes.
