At Beachside Nelson we’re well known for hosting conferences. But when is a conference not a conference? When it’s a rally!
It was a delight to host a Vintage Motorcycle Rally earlier this month. Some of the motorcycles were seventy years old, and the oldest participant was eighty-two! It was marvellous to see this group of riders share their joy of vintage motorcycles, and Beachside Nelson proved to be an ideal rally venue for them.
If you’re organising a rally, we thought we’d share three tips to help you choose your venue!
Three tips to help you choose your Nelson rally venue:
Location, location, location:
- Firstly, some of the most important things to consider when you are choosing your Nelson rally venue are the practicalities. If you’re organising a vintage car or motorcycle rally a big part of the event is being able to view your fellow rallygoers prized vehicles. At Beachside, we have plenty of on-site parking. Planning an event that will span a couple of days? We’re lucky to have the fabulous Tahuna Beach Kiwi Holiday Park and Motel right on our doorstep! This fabulous accommodation provider has been welcoming holidaymakers and travellers to the region for nine decades. They offer a range of motel units and cabins to suit all budgets.
Food that suits:
- If your rallygoers have had a long journey or an early start to get to your rally venue, then a few canapes are not going to cut the mustard. You’re going to need more fortifying food! At Beachside Nelson we pride ourselves on our ability to find the right catering solutions for your event. Our hospitality experts, Carol Shirley has been at the forefront of Nelson’s catering and events industry for decades. So when you select Beachside as your Nelson rally venue, you can rest assured that you are getting the very best food and drink for your budget.
- Finally, do your research and find out what other people say about the Nelson rally venue you are considering. This is what the organiser of our recent Vintage Motorcycle Rally, Murray McLean, said…
