water add just H2Ois the go story by Johanna Mc kinnon Why not meet and make it fun by adding a little bit of water to your next event. or beside a Jamie Durrie–inspired water feature, going barefoot on a tropical island, or getting wet at a water fun park, the possibilities for adding a touch of water to your next event are seemingly limitless. Getting your group together for cocktails by the pool or even a board meeting is a great way to get the creative juices and conversation flowing. And speaking of swimming pools, the Ivy Pool Club in the heart of Sydney is a real showstopper. Located on the roof of the luxury establishment on Sydney’s George Street, the Pool Club offers bikini-clad bronzed Sydneysiders a place to splash around while sipping on cocktails from individual cabana lounges. The cabanas ooze real style. Decorated with colonial white walls and fresh lemon yellow lounges, similar to Ivy’s Lawn Bar, laying yourself down on one of these wouldn’t be hard at all. The club is members’ only but if you’ve got the bucks you might be lucky in securing your own little piece of paradise right in the heart of town. For a seaside venue way north of Sydney, Darwin’s newest offering is ideal. The Darwin Convention Centre and waterfront development was completed in mid-2008 and offers a conference space by the sea.

The centre is made up of 22,900 square metres of meeting space that includes an W 90 mice.net ater makes up around 70 percent of the surface of the earth, so why not make the most of it at your next event. Whether it’s adapting your event around a swimming pool auditorium with 1500 seats, four halls, waterfront rooms that can cater for 630 delegates theatre-style and meeting rooms which can accommodate up to 170 delegates. Or would you rather a venue where getting yourself well and truly soaked is never frowned upon but rather encouraged?
