Conference Centres in PretoriaHow to Plan a Healthier Conference for Your Attendees
Everyone is talking about green meeting spaces and turning conferences into healthier events. With an emphasis on going green and healthy, we thought we’d write a short list about how you can turn any meeting, conference or event into a healthier gathering for your attendees. Turning your executive retreat into a healthy getaway is easier than you think, and we’ve got the tips you need to make your event greener and healthier.
Make Drinking Water Fun and Tastier
Create a range of flavours for your hydration station, from fresh cucumber water, to water infused with lemon and mint. The trick is to have the refreshment station out of reach of the boardroom table, so that attendees need to get up and walk over, stretch their legs and get a few steps in that they otherwise would not get in if the water jug stood on the conference table.
When People Stand, They Are More Engaged
Did you know when people stand in a meeting, they are more engaged than when seated in rows? This is where the “Stand Up Meetings” trend sweeping through the corporate industry hails from. So, leave space to stand at the back of the meeting for those who prefer doing so.
In the Interest of Calorie Burning
A fun team activity could include organising a step challenge for delegates to promote walking in the centre and beyond, as well as taking the stairs rather than the lift.
It’s All in the Walk
Arrange your event to encourage walking at all times. There could be different stations where people have to walk to, or you can sponsor activities, as the guests network.
If you are holding a multi-day conference, sponsor a morning yoga class to engage delegates in a new way, and encourage physical activity before the day kicks off.
Tasty, Healthy Snacks
Lose the cookies at the coffee break, and rather opt for a healthy snack like a trail mix.
Work with the catering department to include a range of healthy options and alternatives to fatty and carb-laden food.
Choose Monument Function Centre for Your Next Conference Venue
These are but a few of the ways in which you can turn any conference into a healthier, greener event.

Our venue is nestled at the foot of the Voortrekker Monument, which sets the space for a relaxing and tranquil conference for your attendees. There is no need for you to worry about the logistics, such as safe and convenient parking, and whether or not your guests will feel comfortable and secure while attending the event.
