Small meeting or conference for 1,000?
In its prime waterfront position and with 16 function spaces catering for small scale events and large conferences, Wrest Point has the flexibility and experience to take business events to the next level. Few cities in the world combine metropolitan proximity with sprawling gardens, beaches and marinas as Hobart does and this is no more evident than at Wrest Point, where 3 hotels combine to offer 269 rooms catering for luxury and executive travellers through to value seekers.
All of Wrest Point’s event spaces offer fully integrated AV with full time AV technicians to ensure sessions really wow delegates. Retractable walls in the main conference spaces give the flexibility to tailor breakout solutions. A hydraulic forestage from the largest space (Tasman Room) to the loading bay makes bumping in trade shows or exhibitions a breeze.
Love an outdoor waterfront event? Wrest Point has that covered with The Rooftop Bar. The only rooftop space of its kind in Hobart, they serve up icy cold margaritas, jalapeno poppers and much more, allowing delegates to relax and watch the dolphins play in the Derwent. It’s also perfect for conference lunches, breaks or simply to refresh between sessions while taking in Hobart’s finest river and mountain views.
And for the best views in Tasmania, the Wrest Point lawns can’t be beaten, offering absolute waterfront views of the Derwent River. Delegates can enjoy casual cocktails, BBQs or gala dinners for up to 1,200, all while watching the twilight sailing races. The lawns have also hosted live concerts, with the likes of Cold Chisel, Ministry of Sound and Fatboy Slim pumping out the tunes to packed summer crowds.
Whether arriving by ferry at Wrest Point’s own private jetty, by car, coach or even helicopter, delegates and groups will be well looked after at Hobart’s most exciting conference and entertainment destination.
