"Being first in the market to introduce our own conference package product demonstrates the original thinking that continues to make life easier for our clients," explains Directions director of sales, Fiona Pascoe. Directions’ meeting day packages start from just $68 + gst per day per delegate in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, with packages including: • Plenary room hire • Arrival tea, coffee and fruit • Morning tea • Afternoon tea • Working buffet lunch • Delegate stationary • Refreshments • Directions’ meeting management fee Terms and conditions apply and bookings are based on room availability, for 20 delegates.
