Technical Support and Wi-Fi

Our highly experienced in-house technical team delivers over 700 events each year including conference lighting, sound and audio-video. Wi-Fi is available in all our venues.


Conferences with a Creative Difference

Our musicians entertain royalty, heads of state and distinguished guests. A jazz trio, classical music ensemble and even a staged piece of performance combat by talented performers can give your drinks reception or conference dinner the creative edge.



Our conference and meeting venues are available exclusively from mid-July through to mid-September, early December to early January and during April. For weekend events, the venues may be available throughout the year.



Expect high quality from our in-house caterers who consistently earn great praise for their conference refreshments, lunches, drinks receptions and formal gala dinners.
