10 Unique Conference Ideas You’ll Love

#1.  Pick a fun theme. An autumn festival with burlap runners, mixed fabric tablecloths and warm colours. A spring party overflowing with fresh cut blooms or a cozy winter affair. Pictured: Cabin Fever Winter Festival by Elements Margaret River.

#2.  A game of ring toss never fails. Theme it up at a winery using wine bottles for the pegs on lawned areas. Change it into a prize game by making the bottles full – if they can put a ring on it, it theirs! Prefer beer? Get bowling on the beach with beer bottles and a small beach ball instead.

#3.  While holding a postcard size piece of card on your forehead, write the name of your business/organisation or draw your boss! Reward whoever gets the closest to reality. It’s not easy!

#4.  Make and play a game of Delegate Dominoes to break the ice at the dinner table. Print photos of your board members, committee or staff and stick them on top of corresponding domino numbers.

#5.  Incorporate a workshop on something everyone would love. A honey workshop, making skincare, wine appreciation or a cooking class. Pictured: Vasse Virgin Lip Balm Workshop.

#6.  The food tastes better when it’s round up together. Collect the food for your small team event together at a market, local producer or farm gate sales that morning and even prepare it as a group. Image by Elements Margaret River.

#7.  Take it outside. Set up half way through a walking trail, at a beach or a lookout. Image: Experiencesmith.

#8.  Brand your snack table, centrepieces or dessert bar. It might be a mix of your vibrant corporate colours, themed to represent your event’s major sponsor or even an embodiment of your product; Celebrating harvest? Fill the centerpiece with the colourful fruits of your labour. 

#9.  If you’ve had a few tipples you might even be in the spirit to play musical chairs. It’s not just for kids and it’s a good way to mix up the seating. 

#10.  Make prize giving easy with Conference Cash; themed play money they can spend at participating wineries, producers and attractions. It’s a perfect way to use sponsorship contributions rather than arranging delivery of physical goods. You might even chose to apply it to free drinks at a cash bar or money towards a prize table to choose their own reward. Pictured: Howard Park Wine Chapel.
