Weird & Wonderful Hotels: Manta Resort

At Veritas Event Management we are always looking out for the weird and wonderful hotels of the world. We like to think outside the box and strive to make your next incentive or overseas event a special one. One hotel which comes to mind is the very unique Manta Resort. Joining a list of other experimental under-the-sea hotel rooms in Florida, Sweden and the Maldives, the underwater room at Manta Resort on remote Pemba Island in Tanzanias Zanzibar Archipelago, immerses guests 4m below the surface. The room sits on the bottom of a three-level floating structure, located 250m from shore in the Indian Ocean. Above the underwater space, guests can climb a ladder to the water level, which contains a bathroom and lounge, or ascend to the rooftop to soak up the sun or lay beneath the stars. If you are considering planning your next overseas incentive trip or conference why not choose the  Manta Resort? One thing is certain that your delegates would definitely not forget their experience at this hotel! Need help with planning your next incentive trip? Call Veritas Event Management on (02) 8908 5600 and one of our event managers would be happy to help.

Adelaide Convention Centre reveals new function spaces

The Adelaide Convention Centre has continued its strategy of opening up the Centre towards the river and taking advantage of its picturesque setting by opening new function rooms including the Riverbank Foyer. The new function spaces also include Riverbank Room 4, an ideal room for stand-alone events or breakout meetings, and a new boardroom for smaller, more intimate meetings. Meetings in the Riverbank Rooms can now be serviced by a new dedicated office exclusively for conference organisers and clients. Vision and sound from the Riverbank Rooms can be relayed to the office and Riverbank foyer so delegates and conference organisers can monitor proceedings outside of the meeting room.
