Baker McKenzie

Senior management meeting, team building activity and exclusive evening dining.


Baker McKenzie had their directors flying into Belfast from around the world in September. They wanted a private and unique venue that could help show off Northern Ireland for their senior management meeting, team building activity and exclusive evening dining.

They explored many corporate meeting venues in Northern Ireland but ultimately selected Larchfield Estate. Larchfield offers a unique and unusual experience, a far cry from the plain rectangular box of an office meeting room. The venue offers privacy, seclusion and fresh country air so you can fully engage in your work.

With an exclusive space that suited their requirement, Baker McKenzie felt that the surrounding environment and service offered by Larchfield were exceptional and conducive to a highly productive session.

Client Requirements

Baker McKenzie Belfast were asked to host the annual international directors’ meeting – an event that is hosted in alternating international locations where the global company has a presence.

It was important to senior management that the venue of choice offered:

  • Privacy and exclusivity
  • Flexibility
  • Ability to work with existing event partner
  • A variety of scenarios from meeting rooms to outdoor activities to a high-end dining experience
  • Location – close to Belfast as guests would be returning to their hotels overnight, close to both Belfast and Dublin airports

Working with Field Dynamics and Life Adventures the events team at Larchfield drew up proposals in line with the client briefs, arranged private chefs, using high end local produce cooked fresh on site, provided breakfast, lunch and dinner menus and recommended photographers and entertainment for the event.

A day to remember...

The client wanted a fun, motivational and potentially competitive event to energise individuals and activate ‘team’.
