The world has certainly changed since COVID-19, and the corporate event scene is no exception. The new normal for corporate events will make the most of outdoor event spaces, with flexible programs incorporating nature-based and wellness activities key to a successful event.

If you’re planning an event such as a conference, annual general meeting, board meeting, team building retreat or client catch up, be sure to consider these venues packed with amazing views and vast outdoor space, all designed to be COVID-safe.

Go beyond the boardroom

Inject a point of difference into your next business meeting or team building day by going beyond the boardroom. Organise a golf session at the RACV Royal Pines Resort in Queensland or RACV Cape Schanck Resort in Victoria both with championship golf courses. Finish the day with team drinks and some dinner at RACV Royal Pines Arakawa Japanese Teppanyaki restaurant.

Only 50 minutes from Melbourne, the RACV Healesville Country Club & Resort’s Conservatory is a new outdoor dining area with a difference. A perfect space for a welcome dinner to impress delegates.

Get back to nature

Tap into the healing power of the great outdoors by including nature in your next team building day or staff workshop. Located next to Creswick State Forest, the RACV Goldfields Resort is well placed for mindful bushwalks, bike trails and meditation sessions in nature, while RACV Inverloch Resort’s ‘Bird Walk and Talk’ will make your next conference a balanced, calming event.

Up north, the RACV Noosa Resort team can arrange rejuvenating team building activities in nature such as kayaking the Noosa River and walking the wildlife-filled trails of Noosa National Park.

Plan a city catch up

It’s probably been a long time since you’ve seen the people that help make your business what it is. Organising a planning day with your team or long overdue meeting with your clients will allow you to catch up on all that you’ve missed out on.

In Melbourne, the centrally located RACV City Club has a variety of spaces perfect for a special client dinner, planning day or boardroom meeting. The Wine Cellar is a unique choice for an intimate dinner or meeting with clients, while the larger ballroom located on Level 17 with an outdoor terrace, offers sweeping views of the city skyline.

In Hobart, the RACV Hotel’s Boardroom accommodates up to 14 attendees, making it an ideal venue for a board meeting or planning day, while the much larger Collins Room is a great space for product launches and cocktail events.
