South West Wales has spectacular coastline, unspoilt countryside, thrilling activities, and fascinating places along with a great choice of quality accommodation and quick, easy access from within the UK. The region is fast being recognised as a unique conference and meeting destination. The range and capacity of venues in city, coastal and rural locations play a major part in its success.
Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty and Britain’s only coastal National Park, the spectacular coastline, ancient heritage and welcoming culture makes the region a natural choice for mixing business with pleasure.
We want visitors to enjoy the region in December as much as they do in July and, rather than encouraging a huge volume of visitors to spend a brief stay, we’d like those that come to spend extra time here travelling throughout the region and enjoying facilities that are increasingly less weather dependent and both environmentally and economically sustainable.
Whether you are planning a conference, a meeting, an exhibition or looking for ideas for corporate hospitality, South West Wales can provide the perfect environment for your event. With over 100 venues to choose from, the range and capacity can accommodate meetings for 2 or conferences for up to 2,000. With superb business accommodation and award winning attractions the region offers an inspiring location for conference organisers and delegates alike.
Pembrokeshire, on the South West tip of Wales, is a spectacular coastal region, surrounded on three sides by the sea. The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park takes in the entire coastal strip - the only national park in the UK to be wholly coastal in nature and for good reason. The coastline is stunning!
Known as the 'garden of Wales' and home to the National Botanic Garden, visitors can explore the rich heritage and culture, myths and legends, with spectacularly sited castles and picturesque market towns. Stunning countryside, with the Black Mountain (part of the Brecon Beacons National Park) in the East, the longest sandy beaches in Wales, the wonderful valleys of the Tywi, Cothi, Teifi, Gwendraeth and Taf, lakes, hills and moorland - a paradise for nature lovers and bird watchers. The Red Kite is a common sight soaring over the countryside.
The vibrant waterfront city of Swansea, the popular Victorian seaside resort of Mumbles and the spectacular Gower Peninsula - the UK's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. To the east Afan Forest is world renowned for its mountain bike trails and the Vale of Neath, aptly named 'waterfall country' is an ideal location for walking and taking in the scenery.
