Beachside Nelson – Home to Gourmet Catering

A large and important part of the hospitality industry is the conference sector. Overseas, in the conference and event industry, it is still pitch black and the turnover is close to zero. Fortunately, this is not the case for us in New Zealand, though last year during our lockdown many conferences and events were cancelled and postponed, but not everything is rolling out as usual again.

Beachside Nelson has a lot to offer and is a very suitable venue for both conferences, birthday receptions, weddings, and similar events.
