Paige Smith has joined Rydges South Bank as Conference & Events Sales Manager, reporting to Donnita. She was most recently Catering & Events Manager at the Brisbane Marriott Hotel. 

 

After starting her career in Sydney at the Sydney Marriott Hotel as an Event Coordinator, Paige gained important experience at the Q Station Manly and the Relais & Chateaux hotel in Sydney - Jonah’s Restaurant & Boutique Hotel. She takes on the responsibility of looking after the event and accommodation spaces for corporate and social clients.
