Case Study: Fructor Suntory Conference, 260 pax, Tangalooma Island Resort

Staff from Frucor Suntory travelled to Tangalooma Island Resort for three days and two nights for their annual conference. Here's what went down.

During March, 260 staff from Frucor Suntory (V Energy, Mizone, Maximum and Amplify) travelled to Tangalooma Island Resort for three days and two nights for their annual conference.

Tangalooma Island Resort hosted the delegates to magical experiences such as wild dolphin feeding, while Banana Life engaged the delegates in a team building experience.

What the client asked for:

Frucor Suntory required a location that would cater to all ages, physical fitness levels and could host large groups for multiple days. The beachfront resort provided new and exciting conference experiences that took the staff out of their daily work environment and gave them an opportunity to build strong meaningful relationships with their colleagues.

Each section of the conference was creatively themed with bespoke styling to highlight Frucor Suntory’s major drink brands.

Delegates took part in business sessions in the Waterfront Pavilion and team building in the lush surroundings of the resort. They were treated to multiple private dining options: the new Wheelhouse restaurant, the Flensing Deck, and the beach.

Event management company EWM worked closely with the Tangalooma Conference and Events team to craft an experience that would engage and excite the delegates over the three days.

“There are very few places in Australia that are just over an hour boat ride from the city, yet that feel so far away – like you could be anywhere in the world. Pristine white sand, sunsets on the water and great hospitality,” said Mark Weidermann, Frucor Suntory Marketing Director.

“We wanted to create an environment to allow our staff to disconnect and really connect.

“Coming to a place like Tangalooma allows them to feel like they’ve left work and life behind. They are here for one purpose, to be together with their teams and really enjoy themselves.”
