Parksville, British Columbia (PRWEB) February 13, 2008
For everything from corporate retreats to large conferences, there is no place quite like Parksville and Qualicum Beach for Vancouver Island resorts, golf, spas, and meeting facilities. Vancouver Island's Parksville and Qualicum Beach region also boasts one of Canada's mildest, most desirable year-round climates earning the region its reputation as "Canada's Riviera".
Groups planning winter events and meetings will find virtually the same activities available as the summer, while the kick off for the off-season Vancouver Island hotel rates make a Parksville and Qualicum Beach retreat affordable. Groups from 20 to 650 will feel at home in Parksville accommodations and the region's meeting facilities are second to none - all in a remarkably beautiful beach setting. Parksville and Qualicum Beach is home to 64 meeting rooms across 13 Vancouver Island hotels, resorts and conference facilities.
For winter teambuilding activities, Parksville and Qualicum Beach offers an array of popular attractions. Vancouver Island golf courses are some of the most beautiful in the country, most with ocean and mountain views. Many also take a Vancouver Island tour, pamper themselves at a local resort spa, hike Cathedral Grove's giant old-growth forests, charter a fishing trip, or simply walk along 19 km of pristine beaches.
When meetings are wrapped up for the day, the region has 33 Vancouver Island hotels, resorts and motels and over 30 bed and breakfasts to offer with particularly attractive rates from October to April. Direct flights from Alberta to nearby Comox, that can be booked for as low as $99, make group transportation from around Western Canada simple and affordable.
Reviewing annual performance, developing group dynamics, or retreating for a board meeting are all productive and enjoyable this winter in Vancouver Island's Parksville and Qualicum Beach region.
