4 fab reasons you should conference in the Hunter Valley

​Wow factor

No place embodies the good life more than the Hunter Valley. It's not only the oldest Australian wine region, it's hands-down one of the most spectacular with incredible views, wine, food and unique experiences. It offers endless possibilities for meetings and conferences of all shapes and sizes, and guarantees that wow factor attendees love. Whether it's an intimate networking experience or a big bash to attract potential new stakeholders/staff, the Hunter is the next best thing in business destinations. And it's closer than you think.

​Fresh air = fresh ideas

Doctors recommend a breath of fresh air is the best medicine, so a conference in the country is bound to be good for the team. Escaping the congestion and routines of the city can also be a real game-changer in thinking patterns. It's the perfect option to relax and unwind, and return to the office re-energised and inspired with new ideas to share with the team. And as for new visual content for your social media channels, few can compare to the Hunter Valley.

​The right blend

Yes, the main objective of any business event is to explore new strategies and ideas, but you need the right blend of work and play. No surprise that blending is one of the Hunter Valley's areas of expertise! We've got the perfect mix of team building options and unique attractions for you to explore. You can network on one of the three championship golf courses, relax at a day spa, compete in a wine Olympics challenge or cooking class battle… and your workmates are sure to enjoy our after-work drink and dine spots too.

Location, location, location

The real estate mantra really matters when planning a business event as the logistics of getting there and transporting attendees around the destination can make or break your event. Once again, the Hunter Valley ticks all the boxes as it's just a two-hour drive from Sydney and only 50 minutes from Newcastle. Prefer to fly your team in? No worries, Newcastle Airport has direct flights from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Canberra, Adelaide and Auckland (from November), as well as several regional NSW centres. And if you prefer charter flights or a private aircraft you can fly direct into Cessnock Airport, slap-bang in the heart of the Valley.

Come and give your team a taste of the good life – it's bound to be good for your business.
