Refreshed look for Invercargill’s premier conference and events centre

New Ascot Park Hotel Logo

The Ascot Park Hotel’s brand has been given a facelift and the new look was revealed at the official launch party on Friday.

The name remains the same, with the new brand giving a nod to the past by retaining the iconic horse head. The traditional ‘three racehorses’ now become one.

Chris Ramsay, ILT CEO said the Ascot Park Hotel was named after the neighbouring race track and was originally home to the horse stables. The new brand respectfully acknowledges the past whilst confidently looking towards the future.

“Ascot Park Hotel has been an icon of Invercargill for over 40 years, it is a world class hotel that the ILT has invested heavily in, most recently with extensive room refurbishments. It has an amazing team of people that offer exemplary service.

We think the new brand more accurately reflects this and gives a bold visual representation going forward”, said Ramsay.

One of the first places to see the new brand is on the Southern Steel dress. Guests to the launch party were treated to an early look at the new team dress which will be tested out at the team’s next home game against the Tactix on Monday, 24 May 2021.

Steel Chief Executive Lana Winders said the Ascot Park Hotel has been a supporter of the Southern Steel, and its predecessor the Sting from its inception so it was lovely to be able to share this new look and celebrate the long successful association we’ve enjoyed.

“Heading into the midway point of the season it’s great to get a new look which will help invigorate the team for the remainder of the season”, she said.
