Event Type: Annual Conference, 4-night cruise from Auckland

Attendees: 144 Delegates

Event Brief:

P&O offered a solution that not only ticked all the boxes, but also gave delegates a unique conference experience at sea!

Ginger Group chose a three night Sea Break round trip itinerary for the duration of their conference.Without the hassles of flights and transfers,delegates were ready to hit the decks running.

According to Nicola Smee, Executive Director at Ginger Group, “P&O Cruises fulfilled Ginger Group’s ‘classic’conference brief requirement with two half-day conference sessions, supported by full state-of-the-art lighting, sound, visuals and audio/visual technicians,providing a seamless, stress-free conference execution. Three cocktail functions were held with staggering 180-degree views of the sea. Delegates kicked back Gilligan’s Island style complete with tropical inspired cocktails.

Dinner each evening was sophisticated and cutting edge à la carte dining, plus a select group of delegates were treated to an unforgettable celebrity chef dining experience at Salt grill by Luke Mangan.

Our delegates loved their free time, when they got to enjoy full use of the ship’s facilities including yoga, massages, pub trivia, production shows, the casino, drinks by the pool and more.”

Post event feedback showed overwhelmingly that our team of 176 delegates were overwhelmed with the service and facilities and felt that they had the right combination of business and pleasure.

As an organiser, the team at P&O Cruises worked tirelessly with us to ensure our annual event was a total success”.
