Considering conferencing in the Drakensberg? Look no further than The Nest Hotel for great rates, comfortable accommodation and delicious meals!  Additionally, the Nest Hotel has a modern double volume conference centre which can hold up to 120 people.

In previous years, pre – Covid, conferencing was a popular means for a company to gather up their people in one location. Time away from the usual environment of the office to reflect on corporate strategies, future goals and occasionally some team building.

Along comes a pandemic that changes everything! The way we work, the way we meet and the way we communicate. Gatherings soon become a thing of the past and online media takes a huge leap forward. Goodbye conferencing and hello Zoom!

So, the question now, is conferencing a thing of the past? Many corporates have realised how much money they save changing the way they operate. Home offices and online meetings become the norm. But what about human connection and team interaction? Connecting across a screen seems to take away that personal connection and people are easily distracted by their surroundings.

We believe there is still value in conferencing and have seen a steady increase in group bookings. There is the need for personal interaction and a quiet space away from the busyness of corporate life. A place that motivates and inspires new ideas, a place where challenges and strategies can be brought to the table. And for some a place that offers team building through various exercises and events.
