Last week we partnered with Destination Queenstown who brought 17 domestic corporate guests to Queenstown to showcase the best of the best and it’s brilliant operators over a three day stay.
Guests were given a whirlwind tour of Queenstown, showcasing so much of what makes it such an enticing location to domestic corporate businesses. From dinner at the Sherwood in one of Gather and Golds tipi’s, a ride on the famous Shotover Jet, an alpine landing with Glacier Southern Lakes Helicopters to a lunch served up at The Elms at Lake Hayes Villa Three, our guests got to experience why Queenstown is the number one spot for New Zealand corporates looking for a destination with a difference.
Touch of Spice was involved in 2 parts of this Famil; the first was a tradeshow where each operator had 7 minutes with each buyer to show off exactly what we do. This was where we could share our new look book of previous events to showcase that we are a ‘DMC with a difference’ (Destination management company); looking to create those once in a lifetime moments, may they be an evening event, executive retreat or incentive program. The second was the next day at our event, the finale lunch.
The Finale Lunch
Touch of Spice partnered with Artisan catering to host the finale lunch at The Elms at Lake Hayes Villa Three, one of our exclusive Villas as Venues on the edge of Lake Hayes overlooking the Coronet Ski Field. After a very hectic 3 days for the buyers, we wanted to wow the guests with a beautiful setting which would live long into the memory and put Touch of Spice and Queenstown front of mind when the clients were planning their next event. The Elms at Lake Hayes Collection makes a perfect place to hosts a private or business event - with a capacity of 50 people for a long lunch, and 10 opulent double bedrooms spread across three adjoining apartments, this is a versatile venue for clients looking for luxury to either stay or host a dinner.
Artisan, as always, was very impressive, coupling superb food with excellent service. Beautiful platters and a superb walk and fork menu received compliments all round, with one guest remarking that ‘Touch of Spice and Artisan is truly a world-class combination’. That is the feedback we will not argue with.
As the event began to wind down, guests helped themselves to some Touch of Spice branded goodies from our friends at Buzz Stop - Queenstown’s local bee farm serving up the finest bee’s wax and honey experiences and produce, giving the guests a little sample of Queenstown to take home with them.
