Rumba Beach Resort has today announced that two of Caloundra’s leading hospitality providers have joined forces to launch a new partnership.

Allan and Janine Langer of Alfie’s Mooo Char & Bar and Rumba Resort’s Bill Darby have forged the new alliance. Janine Langer, along with chefs Daniel Wilkinson and Leonie Wohlsen have been confirmed as the new in-house catering team for the resort’s recently refurbished conference facility.

“Our collaboration with Alfie’s Mooo Char Restaurant means we can deliver our event guests both a great venue and a unique foodie experience”, said Rumba Resort general manager Bill Darby. “Our venue catering and functions menus and have been created to celebrate the freshest of local ingredients with a farm-gate to plate philosophy”, Mr Darby continued.

Headed up by local Kaileb Gosewinckel as events manager, Rumba Resort enables local businesses to “stay local” when hosting a business meeting or networking event in Caloundra. The resort’s new 26degrees Bar & Venue is the icing on the cake for the five-star hotel.

“We are very optimistic that our 26degrees bar and Rumba can attract high-value business tourists, so it’s a giant step forward for Rumba Beach Resort & Caloundra”, said Mr. Gosewinckel.

“Our research shows that delegates want to experience the local attractions before and after a business conference.  So we want to entice them to bring the family, come earlier – stay longer to experience the best of Caloundra”, he continued.

Caloundra Chamber of Commerce Executive Officer Leanne Layfield said, “We welcome the union of two great businesses in this venture and we look forward to achieving continued growth to Caloundra’s already vibrant travel sector. This is a much needed addition to the local business events market”.

“We know that more business events are being held outside the major centres.  This is an encouraging trend.  As an operator we want to see business tourism spread across broader geographic regions so that local, lesser-known areas such as Caloundra can also benefit from the flow on effect of delegates attending business events, adding to our already strong leisure market”, stated Rumba’s Bill Darby.
