Being boutique at Convene South

Unique Stays & Experiences had its first real push into the corporate meetings market at Convene South and managing director Louise Frend says she was heartened by the response.

‘Not everyone is looking for a 200 plus capacity room in a hotel. We are seeing a real appetite for boutique and off the eaten track venues and accommodation,’ says Frend.

Unique Says & Experiences represents nearly 20 different suppliers, including Hapuku Lodge & Tree Houses in Kaikoura and The Marlborough Lodge in Blenheim.
