Rotary District 1110 Conference

The island break hosted over 600 delegates in October 2018 for the Rotary District 1110 Conference.

October is an excellent month to hold any form of large group movement to Jersey. The main reason being availability of beds and transport, and the ability to negotiate favourable rates with both accommodation and transport providers. C.I. Travel Group (CITG) supported with the organisation and administration of the Rotary District 1110 Conference for over 600 off-island delegates in October 2018.

Packed with inspiring quality speakers and memorable experiences, the event was hosted at Fort Regent, the site of a Napoleonic Fortress, spanning 22 acres and offering panoramic views of the town and the coastline. The event inspired visitors to discover the island break, with the opportunity to reconnect with nature and go behind the scenes at Jersey Zoo, to exploring Jersey’s Occupation story at the Jersey War Tunnels and other World War Two sites.

A bespoke package

CITG developed a package for the event, with an overall price which included:

  • Return transport to the island by air with Flybe, Blue IslandseasyJet and BA or sea with Condor Ferries
  • A meet and greet service on arrival
  • Return transfers with Tantivy from either harbour/airport to the accommodation
  • A flexible duration of 2-7 nights’ accommodation at a range of hotels
  • Breakfast included daily
  • A pre-booked half board option
  • A return transfer between all hotels and Fort Regent on each day of the conference programme
Delivering value for money

CITG negotiated nightly rates with a range of hotels all located within the St. Helier ring road for ease of transfers and access to and around the island. CITG also agreed with the carriers operating from Southampton a bulk group rate. In addition, special rates with Condor Ferries were agreed for both foot passengers and for vehicle transportation.

Supported by Events Jersey

Whilst the actual conference took place over a 3-day period, many delegates chose to revitalise in the natural elements of Jersey and retreat for a 4/5 night escape.

Events Jersey supported Rotary with inspiring ideas and recommendations. To encourage delegates to explore the island, Events Jersey provided Rotary with access to curated imagery to reflect the abundance of colour and vibrancy of Jersey’s story. These featured in the event website, brochure and dedicated app. From the island’s coastline and countryside to the natural beauty of its beaches and authentic food experiences, Rotary repurposed inspirational itineraries and suggested experiences from jersey.com and shared these with delegates in the event app.

Many local Rotarians were involved and gave a warm welcome to delegates to leave visitors with lasting memories of the island break.
