Green and hilly, Wales is a land of myth, legends and epic adventures – all of which inspire epic events.
The country has thriving life sciences, tech, and energy and environment sectors, among others. Its capital Cardiff has its own international airport, with excellent transport links around the rest of the country.
Wales has a long history of hosting major events – in the past it has been home to the NATO summit and the Ryder Cup, while in 2017 the UEFA Champions League Final will be played in Cardiff.
The country is split in to four regions:
North Wales: with the country’s most distinctive scenery and a reputation for adventure. Perfect for your next incentive group, attractions include the world’s fastest zip line and a vast underground trampoline. Llandudno is a classic seaside town, which offers a range of accommodation. On the seafront is Venue Cymru, which has spaces to suit between ten and 1,500 delegates.
Mid Wales: is known for its rich, rolling green landscapes and unspoilt coastline. With stunning views over Cardigan Bay is Aberystwyth University, which can accommodate up to 250 delegates.
South-west Wales: is home to Wales’ second biggest city, Swansea, which mixes huge beaches with great museums. The Liberty Stadium is home to a football and rugby team, and also hosts conferences and events, with capacity up to 780 delegates.
South-east Wales: is home to Wales’ capital, Cardiff. The city is well-known for sport, with the Principality Stadium very much at its heart. It offers a range of meeting spaces for up to 350 delegates. Also in the city centre is St David’s Hall – it is home to a 2,000-seat auditorium, offering some of the finest acoustics in Europe.
Follow in the footsteps of world leaders to Celtic Manor, a short drive from Cardiff. This five star hotel and golf resort is just over two hours from London. Its hotly-anticipated expansion, open in 2019, will see its capacity increase to 26,000m2, with space for 5,000 delegates.
