With a passion for tourism and events, Amanda took up the role of Business Development Manager – Events with The Star in 2012 as the venue was re-introduced to the industry as Sydney’s first and only integrated resort. Promoted to Assistant Director of Sales in 2014, in her time at The Star, Amanda has proven her skills in events and customer relations, playing an integral role in raising the profile of The Star within the local and international industry.
One of Amanda’s key achievements at The Star has been her involvement in launching The Star Event Centre in early 2013. Since its launch Amanda has secured numerous high profile events including, the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Awards (a.k.a. Australia’s answers to the Oscars) and the most anticipated night on the music industry calendar, the ARIAs which were held in November for the third year in a row at The Star.
Her experience combined with her memberships within a number of industry associations such as Meetings and Events Australia (MEA) and Business Events Sydney alongside her management of The Star’s presence at international events such as AIME, has helped to build The Star’s reputation as Sydney’s premier events and entertainment destination.

Over the past 3 years Amanda has shown an extremely high level of professionalism, dedication, efficiency and passion in her role at The Star.
