Australia: Diamant Hotel Canberra, part of the 8Hotels Collection, has been selected as the official accommodation partner of the Centenary of Canberra.
The 80-room boutique property will host all national and international guests of Canberra City visiting and attending the year-long centenary celebrations. The year-long program will include new projects, but equally “it will showcase the very best of what’s already happening in Canberra each year-the people, the places, the events that contribute to Canberra’s role in our national story”.
Paul Fischmann, CEO of 8Hotels said: “To have Diamant Canberra selected as the official accommodation partner for the Canberra Centenary is an honour. It reinforces that 8Hotels and the standard of service across all properties is worthy of hosting national and international guests while celebrating such events. We’re excited to be part of the celebrations for Canberra’s 100th birthday.”
Jeremy Lasek, executive director of culture & communications said: “The Centenary of Canberra is delighted that one of Canberra’s highest quality accommodation houses will be partnering with us during our big year of celebration. We know the Diamant management and staff pride themselves on giving their guests a wonderful experience while they are in Canberra and this fits perfectly with our goals and aspirations throughout 2013.”
