PEPPERS LAUNCHES DEDICATED MICE WEBSITE FOCUSING ON REGIONAL CONFERENCING EXPERIENCES
Leading accommodation and venue provider, Peppers, has launched a comprehensive conferencing website for its network of 26 retreats and resorts providing conference organisers with a ‘one stop shop’ for boutique regional conferencing options across Australia and New Zealand.
As the experts in regional conferencing, Peppers’ dedicated conference website – www.peppersconferences.com - focuses on exceptional conferencing experiences at 19 properties across Australia’s East Coast and seven properties in New Zealand’s North and South islands, under the banner “Where can I...?”. In answer to this question are a variety of conferencing experiences, from walking in the footsteps of famous golfers, to swimming with sea turtles or sailing the high seas – all where Peppers properties are located.
“Traditionally conferencing has been about location, but more and more we encountered conference organisers seeking an experience,” said Director of MICE, Paul Wilson.
“So the questions changed from ‘Do you have a property in...’ to ‘Where can I go that I can take people out on the water’ or ‘Where can I go to create a great murder mystery setting’; or simply ‘Where can I go that is all about food’ – hence the reason to focus the website on not only highlighting our fantastic regional venues, but also what we can offer once you get there.”
To launch the new look website, Peppers are inviting meetings planners and conference organisers to enter the draw to win a two night stay at Peppers Salt Resort & Spa in Kingscliff* including return flights from Sydney or Melbourne plus a two hour spa treatment at Gold Door Spa. And, being the Peppers option for where to experience ‘passion and dedication on a plate’, the winner will also enjoy a three course dinner for two at Season Restaurant enjoying the menu of celebrated Chef Reuben Radonich.
