Hilton Sydney showcases culinary and event capabilities


Hilton Sydney has unveiled its culinary and event offering in partnership with Encore in a showcase that included a lineup of live entertainment, from Japanese drummers to an interactive tuna cutting ceremony by masters Ishii San and Ryu Toru.

Under the direction of executive chef Hamish Neale, Hilton Sydney unveiled its culinary concept for events designed to be as expansive and dramatic as budgets allow.


Guests were treated to seven specialty food stations, including caviar and Peking duck, interactive food displays, premium Champagnes, wines, cocktails, and sakes from around the world.

“Event organisers place so much time, money and investment into organising quality, bespoke events only to be faced with generic food packages that can often be restrictive or uninspired and this is absolutely not the case at Hilton Sydney,” Neale said.


“We are dedicated to ensuring that no matter where you dine in our hotel you will be experiencing an unforgettable culinary experience.”

Encore’s collaboration with Hilton Sydney also introduced new creative technologies.

“Encore’s partnership with Hilton Sydney allows us to offer an enhanced guest experience with access to new, unique and immersive technologies which include incredible uses and applications of light and LED to create theatrical moments, presentations, theming and pathways,” said Malcolm Zancanaro, general manager of Hilton Sydney.

“We’re talking about incredible uses of light and LED to create stunning theatrical moments, presentations, themes and pathways,” she said.
