Conferences and Meetings Don’t have to be Dull!

As well as truly indulgent luxury days afloat, Solent Events are specialists in delivering events that include meetings and conferences bolted seamlessly onto water based activities. Years of working with hotels and other venues close to marinas mean that we can recommend the right places to ensure that the serious bit gets done before the fun starts!

Meeting and conference venues

Our sailing days can focus on team building and team development……..

…….and our Rib Treasure Hunts will bring out the competitive side in any group!

Rib Treasure Hunt

Many clients opt for a half or full day in the conference room followed by a day’s sailing or Rib treasure hunt and an evening dinner with overnight stay. Most venues include all that’s needed for your meeting including AV equipment and refreshments and we can take care of the rest to make the whole process simplicity itself. Half day meetings can also be twinned with time afloat if time away from the office is tight.

Why not consider going ‘overseas’ for your conference? The Isle of Wight boasts some great boutique hotels for the smaller groups and is just a 20 minute Rib blast away from the mainland…. although we tend to keep you out longer to prolong this exhilarating experience! We even use 2 forts in the middle of the Solent only accessible from the sea for a meeting few will ever forget!

Conference venue ideas

Most South Coast marinas are less than an hour and a half by train from London Waterloo making the journey simple for our city clients and Southampton’s International Airport is very convenient for those coming from further afield.
