Savvy event organisers know that cool, contemporary activities are the key to keeping conference attendees engaged, yet what do you do in the months where temperatures plummet? Keeping delegates inside and boring them with long speeches and planning sessions is a sure-fire way to turn people off. Instead, inspire, delight and entertain your delegates with these fun, mood-boosting activities that will have everyone bonding in no time.
Tell stories around a campfire
Gathering around a fire at the end of the day is an age-old way to catch up with your community and is just as useful today as it was thousands of years ago. RACV Goldfields Resort keeps the tradition alive during winter with a bonfire at the 19th hole of the golf course – the ideal way to end a long, action-packed conference day. Add marshmallows and mulled wine and you’ll soon have a strong contingent of delegates crowded around the fire!
Slow down with yoga, meditation and tai chi sessions
Planning nourishing indoor activities that are suitable during all types of weather is a wise move when you’re organising a conference during the cooler months. Private, guided yoga, tai chi and meditation sessions can be booked by groups at RACV Torquay Resort and are a smart way for conference goers to carve out some quiet space for themselves outside of the more demanding conference activities and sessions. Yoga is also available at RACV Goldfields, Royal Pines, Noosa, Cape Schanck and Inverloch Resorts as well as RACV Healesville Country Club.
