Conferences and Meetings

Our day delegate packages are a great way to book your meeting or conference with us.


You know right from the start what’s included and how much it will cost.


We can even tailor the package or add on extras to fit your budget.


Our conference menus are all freshly prepared using as many locally sourced ingredients as possible. They are also flexible, meaning you can create a menu to suit your event; whether that means you need something quick and easy as you’re short on time for lunch, or you’re looking to impress delegates and guests with a real feast, our menus can accommodate for whatever your needs may be.


All of our day delegate packages include:

  • Hire of your main conference suite
  • Professional event management on hand throughout your event
  • Event staffing from 8.00am to 5.00pm to look after you and your delegates and invited guests.
  • A minimum number of 15 delegates required.
