Blanket Bay launches the Ultimate Alpine Meetings & Incentive Package

Award-winning Blanket Bay at Glenorchy near Queenstown New Zealand has launched its Ultimate Alpine Meetings & Incentive Package designed to entice regional Boards and executive meetings. Blanket Bay is the region’s most exclusive and intimate alpine venue – with its awe-inspiring location it offers luxury, privacy and sophistication plus a wide range of meeting and adventure activities.

“With direct flights from Sydney, Christchurch and Auckland to Queenstown, plus easy connections via Christchurch from other Australian and New Zealand ports, Blanket Bay represents the ultimate alpine destination which can be reached in only three hours from many of these centres”, states long-time Blanket Bay General Manager Philip Jenkins.

“We believe that in these troubled economic times it is even more imperative than ever that senior company directors and management unite and build their teams effectively to ensure success. Blanket Bay offers the right environment for both work and relaxation that greatly assists in team dynamics and inspiriational decision-making”, states Mr. Jenkins.

Blanket Bay’s Ultimate Alpine Meetings & Incentive Package includes absolutely everything, making it a very practical choice for any Executive Assistant or Meetings Co-ordinator – accommodation, all meals, full meeting room facilities, Meeting Kits, free Internet access and plus all AV equipment, secretarial support, even a complimentary one-hour team building exercise led by Queenstown’s Pure Adventure, are included. Participants have exclusive use of the Lodge, a dedicated on-site Meetings Co-ordinator along with the famed culinary talents of chef Mark Sycamore and his team.

Blanket Bay and its staff have won a long list of awards, most recently being voted amongst the world’s top 400 hotels and one of the world’s Top 20 International Hideaways. “When we host executive teams we know that the success of their few days away is greatly assisted by the amazing Alpine location of Blanket Bay on the edge of the Mount Aspiring National Park, with the incredible variety of alpine and adventure activities on-hand that promote camaraderie amongst team members, and by the luxury and impeccable standards of Blanket Bay and its staff”, states Philip Jenkins.

Blanket Bay’s Ultimate Alpine Meetings & Incentive Package is being launched to the CEOs and Chairpersons of Australia’s and New Zealand’s top companies next week.
