Eco-conscious conferencing in 2018!

Why is there a need for conferencing you ask? Well, conferences provide human-to-human connections, relaying of information to a larger audience, important question and answer opportunities, information on new products and ideas for the future of the business, amongst others.

With hosting a conference comes the responsibility of finding a suitable venue that caters for all your needs, while keeping your staff motivated through a combination of downtime and team activities – all while ensuring successful outcomes. Granny Mouse Country House & Spa provides a host of features sure to appeal to you when it comes to securing a venue for your next conference.

Situated in the KZN Midlands, only an hour and a half from Durban and four hours from Johannesburg, this idyllic venue has been the top choice for numerous companies wanting to connect their staff, inspire, think up new ideas and strategize.

If you are unaware of Granny Mouse, you should note that they have excellent accommodation options, award-winning culinary excellence, an onsite Spa, various conferencing packages and a host of team building activities – some with a twist including macaroon and wine tasting, brandy and chocolate tasting and even a fun, interactive Mousterchef cook-off. Granny Mouse also have the options of green team building within their community.

The idea, which was implemented a few years ago, allows companies to give back to the community through good deeds such as planting a sustainable garden, painting and repair work to much needed crèches, schools and more.

Not only is there the option of green team building, but Granny Mouse also incorporate eco-friendly features into their conferences such as  water in glass jugs as opposed to plastic bottles (depending on the request). In addition, to minimise the use of electric heaters, fireplaces are placed in each function venue, perfect for colder Midlands’s days. Jojo tanks are also placed throughout the hotel for harvesting of rain water – a low-cost solution to supplementing existing water supplies and mitigating the effects of drier spells and periods of low rainfall. This water is then distributed though different areas of the hotel.

So if you are looking for a function venue that is environmentally conscious, then give the banqueting department at Granny Mouse Country House & Spa a call on 033 234 4071.
