2014 marked the beginning of construction on the highly anticipated Crown Towers Perth, making Crown Perth the first hotel complex in the city with a total capacity of 1,200 rooms. With the addition of Crown Towers, Crown Perth will be the largest hotel complex the city has ever seen. Scheduled for completion in 2017, the new Crown Towers will boast 500 luxury rooms, an array of world class restaurants, leading events facilities and access to Crown Perth’s Convention Centre with 4,800 square metres of venue space. This new luxury hotel offering in Perth continues Crown’s commitment to delivering world-class accommodation and event experiences, furthering Crown Perth’s reputation as a world-leading destination for the MICE market.

Crown Melbourne also continued to develop their MICE offerings, finessing the finest options for corporate events, including exclusive culinary options from celebrity restaurateur Guillaume Brahimi. The esteemed French chef has recently been recognised for his culinary prowess by the French Government, achieving the prestigious title of Knight in late 2014. Along with his Knighthood, Brahimi also holds the title of Crown’s Culinary Director, where he creates premium banquet menus for events and conferences, making Crown the only events destination to deliver the cuisine of a world-celebrated chef for large scale functions and events.
