Have just gotten back from two days in Canberra - checking out venues for a client's meeting in 2010. Thanks to Leslie from the Canberra Convention Bureau, for being so helpful (and keeping me moving, constantly, for two days!!)
Saw some great spaces - some I'd seen before, and some new ones. Special thanks to the beautiful Park Hyatt Canberra for putting me up, and showing me around. A great space, lots of natural light in conference rooms (I love that), and as always, the special concierge uniform. ;-)
Looked at various other properties, but one that stands out is the Diamante. Funky! Loved the music that was playing in the common spaces. Great accommodation rooms - reminded me a lot of the Henry Jones in Hobart.
The Realm Hotel is new, and sleek, beautiful. Doesn't seem to have a lot of space for pre-function, but I'm sure that they are creative about that.
Some great venues - such as the Boat House - for special occassions. Beautiful spot on the lake. so tranquil (except for the cockatoos!). I really enjoyed my time there.
Canberra is a great place for a meeting or conference - everything is so close, and easy to get to. And professional! I guess they have to be, with all those pollies. ;-)
