Tip #1 – Entertaining clients the right way

Corporate and client entertainment can be difficult to keep fresh and engaging. Finding ways each year or bi-annually to entertain guests is difficult and companies usually find a good thing and stick with it. A set and forget mentality. Why not change things up and host you next corporate function at HOYTS. With venues nationwide equipped with state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment, gourmet catering and access to the latest blockbuster movies, your guests are guaranteed to be impressed.

“I wanted to send a huge thank you for our fantastic corporate movie event with HOYTS! Everything ran beautifully, beginning with Elie our amazing Account Manager, right through to the team on the day who looked after us so beautifully. Not only were we able to watch a fun movie in the incredible HOYTS LUX cinema, but we were also able to hold an internal briefing session beforehand. Using the AV and laptop worked perfectly for us, and our attendees were in comfort sipping on their drinks and eating their popcorn whilst this occurred. We then followed this by great food and drinks, including the best ever Choc-tops, whilst watching a fun movie. No request was too big, or too small, we were looking after beautifully from start to finish. Our team loved the event, the hospitality and the HOYTS LUX cinema. I would highly recommend this to any corporate company looking for a great opportunity with their team.”Carolyn Baker, Executive Assistant - Optus

Sony hosted the Spider-Man: Homecoming premier at HOYTS Entertainment Quarter. “A quick note to thank you and the team for making sure our Spiderman: Homecoming event ran smoothly. It’s always a pleasure working with the HOYTS team. You guys run a slick operation and are a great comfort to use as you are SO on top of everything.”Naomie Sharp, Head of Publicity and Promotions – Sony Pictures Releasing


Tip #2 – Hosting your event in style

Throughout the year, businesses will hire a venue for a variety of occasions including presentations, staff training and entertainment. It can be difficult to find a space that caters for large group sizes coupled with a venue that engages and has people excited. Whatever your occasion, HOYTS have unique and quality venues across Australia for commercial or private hire. HOYTS Venue Hire is perfect for company presentations, corporate functions & events, product launches & activations, roadshows, conferences and much more.

“As part of our retail teams corporate training program, the Super Retail Group sports division (representing both rebel and Amart Sports) requires the use of large training venues to discuss product releases and group strategy with sizable store teams. We have been using HOYTS cinema venues across the country for much of this training where the cinema seating layout and numerous support elements for large groups meet our specific training needs. We would highly recommend HOYTS venues to companies who wish to hold multi-media presentations to large team for any conference-style presentation where break-out groups or table discussions are not required – as the cinema seating obviously dictates.”Roy Barber, Head Sales and Service Trainer – SRG Sports Division

Whether you need to plan a quick event or a big fundraiser, HOYTS will provide a unique experience for your guests. Plus, who doesn’t love the movies? Make your next fundraiser or charity event a success as you watch one of the latest movie or an old time classic in total comfort.

“The HOYTS team were extremely helpful when organising our charity movie night. They spent the time to ensure the right choice of movie was selected for our employees, the assets for all comms materials were delivered in a timely fashion and helped solve any problems to ensure an outstanding event. The charity movie night was organised in a professional manner, the HOYTS staff ensured that all loose ends were tied up and went beyond the call of duty to ensure an excellently executed event. The HOYTS team was helpful, prompt and professional. We would definitely organise another charity cinema night with HOYTS and would recommend this service.”Gemma Kingford-Smith, Philanthropic Specialist | Publicity – David Jones
