We’re sure you’ll agree that if we cater to thousands of visitors a year for their holidays, South Devon’s got to be a pretty special place. So if it’s good enough for a holiday it’s got to be good enough for business right?

We think people should enjoy this stunning region regardless of whether they’re here for business or pleasure, that’s why we’ve put together a handful of reasons why you should be putting South Devon at the top of your list when it comes to arranging work events. 

We’ve got venues of all sizes

Across the region, South Devon has venues suitable for conferences, team building and meetings. Whether you need a large venue to cater for big conferences or networking events, or somewhere a little special for an important business meeting, we have the right venue for you. From racecourses to rugby stadiums, animal attractions to plush hotels, whatever the style you’re looking for, South Devon can provide it.

For team building activities there is a variety available, whether you’re looking for a weekend stay or just a day trip. We have active days out such as high ropes courses and even a waterpark, or for residential stays, relaxing retreats with plenty to do on site and within the area.

Enjoy business with a view

The South West and Devon in general are known for their amazing scenery; think endless rolling hills and jaw-dropping coastline, and this can be enjoyed whilst you mull over that proposal with a big client or pull together influential players for a big networking event – choosing the right setting for your business meeting is just as important as who’s coming.

You could use a sporting venue for a conference that looks out onto a stadium or racetrack and on to the surrounding countryside or a waterfront hotel to wow your guests as they arrive, South Devon can cater for all.

There’s plenty of accommodation

If you’re holding a conference or hosting a team building activity in South Devon, you won’t be short of accommodation options for your colleagues and guests.

For larger groups we have plenty of hotels, many of which you can have your conference too, making it super easy for those coming to your event. Most venues have nearby accommodation as well if staying on site isn’t an option. Being a popular tourist destination, South Devon has a wide range of places to stay dotted across the area, so wherever you choose to hold your meeting, there’ll be something close by.
