Winter Conferencing with Oaks
20 四月 2017
The MICE industry is one that is evolving at a fast pace, with the introduction of new technologies and the impact of new markets changing how we do business. In 2017 we will see the industry’s favourite buzz words, integration and engagement continue to shape the landscape. Oaks is at the forefront of these trends focusing on integrating education and entertainment to their event packages and offering unique and engaging experiences as value-adds for your event. 

In 2017 the focus has been on delivering events that are not of the traditional meeting concept but engage delegates in more multidisciplinary ways. Convergence is key in encouraging natural conversations to occur cross-generations and disciplines to drive organic networking, and our 3 best conferencing destinations offer perfect settings for achieving this. Oaks Pacific Blue Resort in Port Stephens, Oaks Cypress Lakes Resort in the Hunter Valley and Oaks Oasis Resort on the Sunshine Coast are the ultimate conferencing destinations for creating engaging conferences. 

These spaces are not only the best conferencing destinations all year round but during the winter months they offer a perfect setting for revitalising your delegates and inspiring fresh ideas.
