The Melbourne Convention Bureau, experts in providing free support to meeting, conference and incentive planners, reached out to six hotel partners for insight into their favourite team building activities…
A multitude of creative responses came back, with everything from time travel wine tasting at the new Chapter Place events space in the $1 billion Pentridge lifestyle precinct to Salsa Verde-making workshops with stellar chefs from the five star Hyatt Centric Melbourne.
Tony Byron, Commercial Director for Pullman Melbourne on the Park, was excited to announce a new and unique addition to the Melbourne team bonding scene; sessions with two previous AFL players and high performance coaches Dean Solomon & Matthew (Maxy) Kennedy at the soon-to-open Salt Movement & Recovery on Pullman’s ground floor.
While Angie Becker, Director of Sales for Crown Hotels and Crown Events & Conferences, spoke highly of all the fun delegates can have at Jukes Karaoke, crazy themed mini golf at Holey Moley and escapades at Red Herring Escape Rooms, all conveniently located in the Crown Melbourne Complex.
Also high on Angie’s recommendations is Kingpin Crown for groups of 10 to 800 delegates. Kingpin is not just about bowling – it’s a full entertainment experience, offering bowling, laser tag and over 180 arcade games. Plus you can expect chef-quality food and beverages fit for kings and queens.
To end a day of meetings with a spring in your step, Quincy’s cocktail making classes are a highlight. Hosted by some of the city’s finest bartenders, delegates will learn how to make the classics or cocktails, Quincy style.
Meanwhile W Melbourne dished up a variety of team building ideas to spark delegate curiosity, ranging from designing you own personal fragrance to freehand spray can street art sessions with Melbourne Street Art Tours.
