Shangri-La Sydney’s Iconic Grand Ballroom Makeover
Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney pays homage to Sydney’s most iconic landmarks in its newly refurbished 668sqm Grand Ballroom, an elegant space inspired by the iconic silhouettes and sculptural elegance of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge.
The new ballroom’s ceiling features four ornate crystal chandeliers in a series of oval recesses which create the illusion of natural light, consisting of over 2000 glowing crystal rods handcrafted from alabaster. Scalloped patterns and wave-like motifs adorn the ceiling and walls also adding a hint of European flair.
Equipped with the latest technology, the ballroom’s lighting, sound and audio-visual systems are controlled through a wireless iPad, while 69 light-emitting LED ceiling lights can be controlled to highlight table centrepieces or specific event spaces. Wi-Fi is also complimentary throughout the facility.
The Grand Ballroom, located on level B of Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney is able to accommodate up to 850 guests for cocktail receptions and 500 guests for banquets. In addition, business settings in classroom-, boardroom- or theatre-style seating is offered in conjunction with creative solutions and expert advice from a team of event professionals.
