Business Events

Business done different. Take your business event to East Gippsland and promise your delegates a memorable and unique experience.

Host your event in Bairnsdale and enjoy comfort and attractions, choose Lakes Entrance or Mallacoota for a picturesque beachfront setting, or head inland and seclude yourself in the lush greenery and rugged mountain ranges of the Snowy River or the Alpine High Country.

From purpose build conference venues, to cosy farm style spaces and elegant function centres, East Gippsland offers versatile venues anywhere from 10 to 300 delegates, accommodating corporate functions, intimate retreats, through to venues with up to 75 bedrooms, conference facilities and catering on site.

East Gippsland is the place where conference breaks are mindful, delegates are energised, and business events are more natural with less stress.
