Wherever your company is based in New Zealand, it’s time to start thinking about your winter conference. The cooler months are often popular for annual conferences, as winter can be a quieter period for many businesses. So, if you’re searching for the perfect conference destination, look no further than Nelson.
Here are five reasons why you should consider Nelson for your winter conference.
The Centre of New Zealand:
When it comes to location, location, location, Nelson takes the biscuit! Firstly, Nelson is quite literally in the middle of New Zealand. In fact, you can walk to the geographical centre of New Zealand in about thirty minutes from the city centre. Nelson also has excellent regional air links around the country, with over 400 direct flights each week. At Beachside Nelson we’re just a hop, skip and a jump from the airport. So, your delegates can be with us within fifteen minutes of landing. If you plan to hold your winter conference over a couple of days, we also have plenty of motel accommodation right on our doorstep.
The weather is beautiful:
Even in winter, Nelson is renowned for its fabulous weather. Cold, crisp mornings will quickly develop into bright, sunshine-filled days. Setting the scene for sunny smiles from your delegates.
A perfect place to work and play:
No conference should be all work and no play. At any winter conference, it’s important to keep your delegates entertained. Nelson is renowned for its amazing activities and adventures. Check out some of these ideas on the nelsontasman.nz website.
We also have some fantastic local events taking place over the winter months, including Light Nelson. This free, outdoor, arts event features a dazzling array of light installations. The next Light Nelson event will take place from the 3rd – 7th July 2020. Find out more HERE.
Soul food sustenance:
We are fortunate as a region to have a fantastic selection of artisan food producers. A winter conference calls for warming and welcoming foods. Our Beachside Nelson founder, Carol Shirley has been at the forefront of the Nelson hospitality business for many years, food is her passion and she knows the importance it plays in making your event a success. She sources the best local produce so your delegates get a real taste of Nelson.
The beach is perfect, even in winter:
At Beachside Nelson, as our name suggests, we are just a few steps from Nelson’s famous Tahunanui beach. It’s pretty special in the summertime, but in the winter it’s magical! Views of the snow-capped western ranges make beachside walks even more special. It’s the perfect spot for your delegate’s time-out breaks.
