The Big Apple has long been mythologised as a place of wonder, a city that never sleeps and the pulse of the world. It is all true. Landmarks like the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building form a movie-set backdrop to the world’s best shopping, dining and theatre. From modernistic skyscrapers to historic houses, NYC has an extensive range of venues across all five boroughs available to suit any group size, budget and style of event.
There are dozens of must see’s, but consider some canny alternatives. For example, visit The Top of the Rock- this can provide an event space that overlooks NYC with stunning 360 views. Groups can visit the iconic Yankee stadium, which offers game-day meetings and stadium tours. For interactive sports experiences send delegates to perfect their golf swing and have a chance to rock climb at Chelsea Piers on the west side of Manhattan.
Enjoy the terrific nightlife, manic water sports and bustling shops of Montego Bay. Best of all is the food – lush and varied, and spicy enough to test the hardiest palate. Visit shining lagoons, breath-taking waterfalls and a beach bar a mile out to sea, you’ll soon see why this is a place for your next conference/incentive trip. Montego Bay convention centre can provide fantastic facilities to host conferences and meetings just a stone throw from the beach.
Doctor Cave’s Beach is stunning, and has a busy area of shops, bars and restaurants nearby. Duty free shopping is a big draw for visitors, and the shops on Gloucester Avenue (aka The Hip Strip) should not be missed. The town is paradise for lovers of outdoor pursuits, from zip-lines, to scuba diving, and has no less than five world championship golf courses with spectacular sea views. Even experienced adventurers might not have tried “river tubing” or “bamboo rafting” and this is your chance
While the capital of India prides itself on respecting the past, with strong traditions in arts, crafts and dance, it is also proudly modern, with funky fashion and fabulous shopping for your groups to enjoy. Its architectural marvels, cosmopolitan nightlife and diversity of dining makes Delhi an exotic adventure to cherish.
For a fun filled day trip, start in Old Delhi and walk your way through the buzzing markets of Chandni Chowk, keeping an eye out for bargains and bracing yourself for a haggle. Take a breather at The Red Fort, an impressive structure built in the 17th Century and finish off with a snapshot of the Lotus Temple. Like a shy Sydney Opera House, the floral temple is spectacular, strange and very Delhi.
With more than 23 million inhabitants, world-class restaurants and a mind blowing, ever expanding skyline, it’s no surprise Shanghai is the place to host your next conference/incentive trip. It’s also home to beautiful old neighbourhoods, ancient gardens and temples for your groups to explore.
For a taste of the past, take a stroll down The Bund. It’s a former British settlement that’s home to 57 different types of architecture, as well as incredible restaurants and bars. While you are there, visit Bar Rouge for the best view of the financial district and buildings that make Blade Runner look retro. Then hit the shops at Nanjing Road. It’s a visual feast of neon lights and consumer indulgence
