Optional Extra’s That Will Impress Your Guests at our Gold Coast Function Venue

You always want your planned event to the best it can be!

An event is created to ultimately bring people together albeit to educate, motivate, exchange ideas, network or develop new strategies. Your delegates are key to an event’s success and if you exceed their needs and expectations, your event will really stand out and be successful.

And what exactly are the key features of hosting an amazing corporate event you ask? Creativity, hard work and careful planning – before you freak out if this doesn’t sound like something you have time for, our Gold Coast Function Venue, Talinga Retreat, are here to help (as little OR as much as you like!)

So, how do you make an event stand out? With our Optional Extras (which we’ll book and organise on your behalf)…

  • Fireworks
  • Polynesian dancers
  • Fire twirlers
  • Live music
  • Team building exercises

Engage Them With An Exciting Master of Ceremonies

A great MC can set the tone for your event and deliver both an entertaining and memorable day/night. An MC will ensure your event is full of enthusiasm and energy, as well as helping the audience feel welcomed and provide some guidance.

Some other unique suggestions include:

  • Theme the venue – botanical, tropical island luau, secret garden, salsa night, barbecue, arabian paradise, nautical, mexican fiesta
  • Theme the food to match above!
  • Create a signature beverage – ranging from something as simple as the colour of a drink matched to a brand’s style, or a specifically designed cocktail for a high-concept launch event
  • Keep your guests interested – be distinct and hire comedians, hypnotists, magicians or even a caricature artist to draw personalised sketches
