Out of the office, the sky is the limit

Best Western has come up with some challenging activities to add a little spice to the annual conference.


Would your team benefit from a bit of blue-sky thinking?

Then why not try skydiving – one of the options on offer at the Best Western Aberavon Beach Hotel in Swansea. The experience can help build a group’s confidence and get them thinking as a team. Other air-bound activities organised by the hotel include zip-wiring and swinging through trees at Go Ape.


The Best Western Castle Green hotel in Cumbria can organise tank driving activities. Delegates feel a real sense of empowerment as they attempt to steer the heavy vehicles around a track. In the hotel’s gardens, the ropes course offers another challenge, including a Leap of Faith zip-wire at the top of a climbing wall.


At the Best Western Premier Mount Pleasant Hotel in Doncaster, delegates can move hovercraft around a course. The experience has been described as ‘driving a car with four flat tyres on ice’ – in a good way. Delegates get training and then a chance to take control.


It’s possible you want a spooky delegate to join your brainstorming session.

Best Western hotels specialise in the afterlife. The Mad Maid – winner of Do Not Disturb’s ectoplasmic talent show, the Woooo Factor – might gatecrash the meeting in Best Western Dean Court hotel in York. Or the late Tax Inspector from the Best Western Vine Hotel in Skegness could be a useful addition to a budget meeting.

Get in touch with your inner child

Tim Wade, Best Western head of marketing, reveals:

‘We spoke to some men who wanted privacy so they could wear babygros in their meeting.’


Blue food

Wade says: ‘We had a group who asked for this, too. We always try to accommodate people.
