“You’re going to be in charge of planning our next corporate event”
If you’ve been told this and you have no idea where to start, you’re not alone. Event planning often falls into the hands of marketing assistants, because teams aren’t big enough to hire event managers.
Most events have one common theme: to bring people together in one place where they can share ideas and collaborate. Some events are a stand-out, while others tend to be forgotten a week or two on. We’re going to go through why running your event in the Adelaide Hills is a great decision.
Head to the hills for your work shindig
With the wine, local produce and beautiful views all within close proximity to the city, there’s little wonder people are heading up to the hills for their corporate events.
Here are a few reasons why we love the land of the long lunch.
The Hills have a special, ‘country-politan’ vibe. It’s just 20 minutes away from the city, but it feels like a world away. The charming region has rolling hills in almost every direction. Each season has its own distinct personality – the romance of Winter and the explosion of colours in Spring. Streets are layered with gorgeous leaves in Autumn. Summertime is busy with people enjoying the many beer gardens.
The local food and events
Check out the calendar of local events to fill your day with Adelaide Hills’ goodness. Live like the locals do, and enjoy some downtime before or after your work event. Encourage your guests to do the same. Think boutique breweries, wineries, farmer’s markets, and garden gatherings.
The surrounding attractions
The Adelaide Hills are best explored by car. Turn up your tunes and cruise around the region with your work colleagues. Grab lunch at a delicious rustic hills pub or winery, drive past gorgeous wetlands and forests, and enjoy the simple life.
Give your team a different experience than the ‘typical’ city conference. Run your event, then enjoy the relaxing pace of the region.
There’s no denying the huge responsibility you have in planning an event. Let us do all the hard work for you. Our Adelaide Hills event team has over 130 years of combined experience in planning, management, and delivery of corporate events. We can offer work event ideas and themes for your conference, seminar or get-together.
The hills sure are alive…
