Conferencing in Naivasha

Naivasha has become a popular destination for corporate conferencing and team building not only due to its proximity to Nairobi but also due to the many number of hotels and lodges found in the area. A wide range of choices is available to clients with different budgets ensuring that everyone is catered for. The main types of conferences catered for are:

Full board conference

This type of conference includes both accommodation and conference. It would be held over a couple of days with guests spending the nights at the hotel. The typical package would cater for:

  • Bed and breakfast
  • 10am and 4pm refreshments
  • Buffet lunch
  • Mineral water
  • Use of conference hall with conference stationary i.e. pads, pen, white board, flip charts & markers
  • LCD projectors, PA system etc.

Day conference

A day conference does not include accommodation and will usually run from morning to evening with participants commuting to the hotel every day. For this reason distance from the hotel to the main road or bus terminal is important.

  • 10am and 4pm refreshments
  • Buffet lunch
  • Mineral water
  • Use of conference hall with conference stationary i.e. pads, pen, white board, flip charts & markers
  • LCD projectors, PA system etc.

Team building

A team building/ retreat are similar to the day conference module but in lieu of the conference hall participants will usually conduct their activities in a field. A team building will typically be conducted by a facilitator who will have prepared various activities and games for the group all directed at achieving certain goals such as cohesiveness, team work, trust etc.  Some hotels are able to source or recommend facilitators who teams that do not have one of their own.

Board Meetings, AGM’s etc.

A board meeting can take the form of a full board conference or day conference but at a smaller scale. A board meeting will have only a few people attending and thus requires much smaller space than the other two. Many hotels have a dedicated board room to cater specifically for this type of meeting.
