After several years of delivering Arval’s Broker Conference in major hubs including London and Dublin, we proposed a change in location and style.
We wanted to ‘challenge the norm’ for this event and prove to the client that the event could exceed expectations in a venue away from the hustle and bustle of a City. Of course the main task was to find the perfect five star venue, that was easily accessible from all parts of the UK, while still delivering the ‘wow-factor’ to the client. The Celtic Manor Resort, Newport seemed like the obvious choice having delivered several successful events there in the past.
The conference kicked off with guests being welcomed at the entrance of the resort by the concierge and a member of the Parallel Blue team before being whisked away on luxury buses up to the 2010 clubhouse, the venue that was created for the Ryder Cup in 2010. Following arrival teas and coffees guests engaged in the conference and World Café sessions, broken up with energy breaks, a sumptuous lunch and a golf pro giving putting tips and advice.
After the conference the guests were treated to a spa treatment, driving range or relaxation time. We all then reconvened in the exclusive Signature Lounge for pre-dinner drinks where they were greeted with branded green Arval cocktails, which went down very well! Guests were then guided down to the fine dining Epicure Restaurant to enjoy five courses of luxury and stunning musical entertainment. Once they had cleansed their palettes with ‘textures of lemon’ and finished their chocolate fondant with pistachio ice cream, guests relocated back upstairs to the Signature Lounge, for a surprise! This surprise was of course our wonderful magician, Magic Singh. Guests were mesmerized with his close-up, mystifying performances while enjoying the buzzing atmosphere and live music.
