Residential Events Venues
A residential event requires more than just a hotel. If you’re planning a multi-day event where delegates are expected to be focussed and engaged then any venue considered should offer an environment that encourages concentration and productivity. That means ideally it would be in a secluded location, offer good meeting spaces with natural daylight and have plenty of activities onsite for delegates to wind down at the end of a busy day.
