The Incentive Trip

Posted by | Travel | No Comments

Last month we organised a 2 day trip for a lovely group to the south of England, if this is something that you do for your company please do get in touch as we can organise activities around the UK and internationally.

If you are organising an incentive trip for a group of clients or employees there needs to be something to interest everyone and it should ideally include a bit of down time to relax, plenty of delicious food and something that you wouldn’t normally do.

Rhinefield House was our chosen base for the event.  The hotel is located deep in the beautiful New Forest National Park.  It is an unusual blend of Tudor and Gothic architecture and has 50 bedrooms including 3 feature suites.  The hotel also has an outdoor pool, small health suite, restaurant, bar, terrace and stunning gardens complete with ornamental ponds.  There are several meeting rooms for gathering your group on arrival, and for private dining.

Vineyards are so much more than a place to produce wine. The one we visited provided a delicious alfresco lunch using local produce, a tour of the vineyard and an informative and fun wine tasting session. Most vineyards also have a shop where you can buy the wine you liked most as well as other local goodies.

For a full day activity we enlisted the help of Solent Events. They provided an expert crew, 2 stunning luxury yachts and bottles of bubbly to give the group a hands on sailing experience to Cowes on the Isle of Wight with a friendly race back to the mainland after lunch.

To ensure that an event like this runs smoothly the little bits and pieces need to be taken into consideration.  As the area is so beautiful and steeped in history we found a coach company that not only transported the group from one place to another but took the scenic route, stopping periodically for the driver to impart his knowledge of local facts, legends and stories.

We also found a talented photographer who took excellent pictures of the event.

If you are arranging something like this we are very happy to talk through ideas with you and come up with a selection of options for you to choose from and if you feel that you need additional support during the event we can discuss having a member of the nexusvenue team accompany you to ensure that everything runs smoothly.
