Coffs Harbour Novotel takes aim at the MICE market
December 6, 2012
NOVOTEL Coffs Harbour Pacific Bay Resort played host last weekend to a group of PCO’s to showcase the uniqueness of Coffs Coast. It was a famil that kick started with a beach buggy ride – an exhilarating, if extremely windblown experience.
Next they met with the Time out Xperiences team, who started with an ice breaking, teambuilding activity that saw them helping fellow conference organisers into Velcro suits, climbing onto Segways and laser sport shooting.
After many laughs and a few falls, it was as though the group had known each other for years. Those who braved the flying trapeze school, Zip Circus, were also able to tick off a few bucket list achievements after the event.
There was a cooking class with Tony Gill, Novotel Coffs Harbour’s executive chef who showed off his culinary skills.
This was followed by a lunch where the cooking skills of the PCO’s came to the fore. Saturday evening provided an opportunity to meet and chat with some of Coffs offsite activity and venue operators and was followed by a delightful dinner in Charlie’s Restaurant.
Next morning there was an early start with a yoga class on the putting tee which was challenging enough to make the buffet breakfast in Charlie’s Restaurant seem well deserved.
Sunday provided a chance to experience the stunning surrounds of the
resort & have a hot stone massage or facial in Novotel’s day spa, Tranquility.
The famil ended memorably with a one on one interaction with dolphins and seals at Dolphin Marine Magic.
