Why Conference English Riviera?

A successful conference needs a great location that’s easy to reach, a wide choice of venues and plenty of affordable accommodation. The English Riviera has them all.


The English Riviera

Torquay is the ideal place to hold your conference. Its mild climate, glorious beaches, seaside promenades and palm tree-lined streets offer a stress-free environment, making it easy to think clearly during the day and to unwind in the evenings. The surrounding area offers further opportunity to enjoy the natural beauty of the English Riviera, with more great conference locations at nearby Paignton and Brixham.

The English Riviera is easy to access by road and rail – approximately three hours from London and the Midlands. Delegates can also benefit from First Great Western discounted rail fairs. Conveniently located airports at Exeter and Bristol provide further travel options.
