The West Coast’s untamed natural wilderness creates an inspiring destination for business events. Best suited to small-medium sized conferences and events, the spectacular landscapes make it an ideal playground for incentives, groups, and corporate retreats.

The West Coast is easily accessible with direct daily flights from Christchurch and Wellington, or you can enjoy one of the world’s most scenic rail journeys, arriving by train on the Tranz Alpine. If traveling by car, you can reach the coast in 3 hours from Christchurch, Wanaka, Queenstown, Nelson, and Blenheim.

Delegates can enjoy the world's most accessible glaciers, a UNESCO Heritage area, rainforests, geological treasures, uniquely west coast artisan products, and friendly west coast hospitality.
