Newly branded Kennigo Hotel to open in Brisbane

Event Hospitality & Entertainment Limited (EVENT) has announced the latest addition to its expanding portfolio of independent hotels, under the Independent Collection by EVENT, with the group securing the management agreement for the previously branded Mantra Richmont Hotel Brisbane.

Under the new agreement, EVENT will rebrand the hotel to Kennigo Hotel Brisbane and feature 107 rooms, an event space and a new restaurant and bar.

Kennigo Hotel Brisbane will go live on EVENT and third party channels before the end of June for bookings and stays from July 27, with the hotel sitting under the Independent Collection’s Style pillar.

This latest appointment comes on the back of rapid growth and marks the tenth property to be secured under the Independent Collection.

The Group will also lead the development of a new food and beverage concept, taking the restored former boarding house on the property and launching a new local dining concept, with details to be announced at a later date.

An announcement regarding the general manager for the property will also be made in the coming weeks.
