With a holy trinity of coast, town and countryside – and the Olympic Park and City of London on its doorstep – Essex delivers across the board for conferencing and incentives. The county is easily
accessible from the UK and Europe, with many venues located next to the M25, M11, A12 and Stansted Airport. VisitEssex’s Business Tourism Unit is the booker’s go-to for impartial advice and
assistance via a free service. There’s a broad spectrum of hotels and conference venues on offer, but meetings can also be held on board a Thames sailing barge, or at Layer Marney Tower, the
tallest Tudor gatehouse in the UK. Essex is a playground for incentive trips, which can include wine tasting in an English vineyard, country pursuits, or a round of golf on one of the county’s 60
courses. Nearby ports include London Cruise Terminal and Tilbury and Harwich International.
