Where to Host Your Corporate Event, Function or Conference in Tonga
Give your delegates an event they’ll never forget with a seminar, workshop, business meeting or conference in Tonga. Unsurprisingly, most of Tonga’s conference venues can be found in the capital Nuku’alofa, while the odd venue also lies in the hotspot island group of Vava’u. Either way, there are conference venues to suit a range of vibes and needs, from guesthouses with gorgeous gardens and decadent catering suitable for a team-binding retreat to an international hotel for more elaborate affairs.
Those wishing to hold conferences or seminars on the outer islands of Ha’apai and ‘Eua are best to arrange a local community hall but are likely to have to organise their own audio-visual equipment. Nevertheless, for the event venues that offer a more streamlined process, check out this list of the best hotels for conferences in Tonga.
1. Tanoa International Dateline Hotel (Tongatapu)
