South Australia’s Wirrina Resort and Conference Centre has reaffirmed its position as a top convention destination after hosting Clipsal’s national sales conference – the first Clipsal sales conference in 17 years – earlier this month.
The four-day ‘Building on the Clipsal magic’ conference from 28 November to 1 December saw close to 300 Clipsal delegates from across the country enjoy Wirrina’s modern convention centre, restaurants, accommodation and attractions, just over an hour out of Adelaide.
Clipsal Australia Customer Relations Manager David Raggatt says The Fleurieu Convention Centre was chosen as the conference venue due to its facilities, beautiful coastal surrounds and close proximity to Adelaide.
“There was no other venue outside of the Adelaide CBD that could cater for our needs for five breakout rooms as well provide the flexibility to fit in with our schedule,” Mr Raggatt says.
“The service was fantastic and the food was excellent. Wirrina met our business requirements yet provided the facilities for our staff to relax and enjoy the many relaxation activities on offer.”
Clipsal delegates were also treated to Wirrina Cove’s mini golf course which was used as a unique team-building activity, while others took to the resort’s PGA standard 18 hole golf course.
Wirrina Resort Conference and Sales Manager Laurence Evans says the success of the Clipsal conference has helped greatly in securing further conferences at Wirrina.
“Clipsal management have expressed great satisfaction with the professional way the conference was handled, the standard of meals provided and overall, accommodation and facilities were first class,” Mr Evans says.
The Fleurieu Convention Centre at Wirrina Cove is the largest convention centre in South Australia outside of the city seating up to 500 delegates theatre-style and can be divided into three sub-sections for smaller, intimate functions. In addition to conferences Wirrina Resort caters for weddings, sporting groups, festivals and health retreats.Spread over 1200 acres of stunning South Australian landscape on the picturesque Fleurieu Peninsula, Wirrina Resort and Conference Centre offers specialist conference and event facilities unmatched anywhere else in South Australia.
