Adding wellness elements to a MICE trip enhances both attendee engagement and experience

As the world looks forward to better times ahead, the wellness economy has never been more powerful

‘Wellness tourism’ is a growing industry, supported by tourists actively looking for ways to enhance their well-being as they travel. It’s a trend that’s echoed in the business events sector, with high quality wellness experiences now an important part of many MICE programmes.

For guests eager to indulge in wellness, there’s no better place than Kerry. Our lush, green spaces and spectacular natural environment provides the perfect backdrop for a safe and health-focused conference, meeting or incentive.

Adding wellness elements to a MICE trip can enhance both attendee engagement and experience, making them a more productive participant in the programme as well as allowing them time to rejuvenate and restore. Nestled amidst mountains and lakes, Kerry makes wellness easy, serving as the perfect stage for activities that boost morale, relieve stress and encourage team building.
