Meetings & Events
the delegates are enjoying their conference – “they don’t want to go home!”
Whether you’re looking for a private Blue Mountains getaway for a small think tank, an upscale environment to build team morale, or a grand ballroom for an elaborate themed event, the Fairmont Resort is the perfect conference venue in the Blue Mountains for your next event.
Boasting 14 conference rooms that can cater from eight to 850 people in a variety of room formats, the Fairmont Resort in the Blue Mountains is unmatched in the region for its conferencing flexibility, capacity and quality. With our new 128 seat auditorium completed we have taken conferencing to another level.
The Fairmont Resort’s onsite AV service delivers precision theming, service and technology at your fingertips. Our dedicated team of event professionals will ensure your event runs seamlessly, and our world-class chefs will strive to make your menu as memorable as your corporate message.
But perhaps the most stunning aspect of a conference at Fairmont Resort is the breathtaking location on the cusp of the Jamison Valley in the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains National Park, only one-and-a-half hours’ drive west from Sydney.
With a variety of outlooks to the Jamison valley, Australian bush & garden views from many of our conference rooms in the Blue Mountains, the Fairmont Resort is an environment that breeds creativity. Hold brain-storming sessions to a backdrop of tranquil Jamison Valley vistas, entertain event delegates under the stars of the lakeside gazebo, and venture into the surrounding World Heritage-listed national park for a range of spectacular team-building activities.
At the Fairmont Resort, our commitment to service is second to none. You will have the complete attention of our dedicated conference team whether you’re planning an intimate meeting for eight delegates or a glamorous themed cocktail party for 850 guests.
Our 14 conference rooms can be configured to suit your needs, in any layout, from theatre, boardroom, banquet or cocktail style; and our tailored AV service combines attentive service with high-level production management expertise. When it comes to all-important food and beverage, the Fairmont Resort Blue Mountains restaurant has an enviable reputation.
Our world-class chefs specialise in the provision of unique additions to your event, oversee a range of on-site private dining options, and welcome your delegates to dine in any of our four renowned bars and restaurants. Consider, casual post-conference fire-side dining and drinks at the iconic ‘Embers’, High Tea in the stylish 'Sublime Lounge', buffet dinners, lunches and breakfasts in ‘Jamison’s’, or fine dining in 'Eucalypt', one of the best restaurants in the Blue Mountains. Why not experience one of our many outdoor venues such as lakeside drinks under the stars in our gazebo or cocktails in the outdoor maze, or a lakeside BBQ your delegates will also feel at home in one of our 212 upscale rooms and suites.
With either garden, lake, swimming pool, golf course or Jamison Valley views, the spacious rooms feature stylish armchairs, luxurious throw rugs, gourmet mini bars and high-end products in room and bathroom amenities. All Fairmont Resort’s rooms and suites also feature Wi-Fi internet access.

May I pass on to management and all staff the comments I have had from our management was nothing short of excellent.
They said all the staff and everyone they dealt with from the Fairmont were excellent and nothing was ever too much trouble. The positive comments were amazing! we do conferences all over the world both small and large groups, I have been the Event Manager for Toshiba for 27 years now and I’d say the positive comments from all attendees (these were our senior managers) were the best ever!!
A big thank you to all involved.

I must let you know how happy everyone was attending our event at the Fairmont Resort and, as the co-ordinator of the event, I was extremely happy with the service. Everything that could hiccup did but it did not impact our event as the staff at the Fairmont were so great in taking care of our needs. I’d particularly like to thank Michaela and Ellie who definitely were on hand to make sure our conference and dinner went well. I’d also like to thank Ben for being so understanding when a guest arrived with no accommodation booked. I also feel I need to mention that the arrangements for our dinner centrepieces were absolutely gorgeous and I have one proudly still going strong at home! And the bus company used for our tour should be complimented on the driver, Steve, as he was extremely courteous and knew exactly where to take us when I had no clue!
Finally, I’d like to thank you, Hannah as none of this could have happened without your help.
Have a great afternoon,
Personal Assistant to Executive Officer | Westpool – Event held May 2013
This is just a quick note of thanks to the Fairmont Blue Mountains!
David Peters – our Managing director asked me to contact you directly on his behalf, to express how happy we were with the service from all staff, in particular Hannah, Michaela, Brea, Carlos and your AV team. I have never worked with such a lovely group of people with such a “can do” attitude. And of course your lovely self – thanks for your patience throughout the planning phase and on the day!
As a conference organiser they made my life much easier – from where I sit, there is nothing better than knowing that you are in safe hands and I felt that working with your hotel.
All of our staff expressed to me how much they enjoyed their stay which is a fantastic credit to you all.
The rooms, both hotel and conference were perfect for our needs, the food was delicious – a credit to your chef and more than anything, the staff and level of customer service was of such a high standard.
We would definitely come back again in a few years’ time for our conference again. Please pass on our thanks to the team and also your management team. I’d like them to know how much of a wonderful job you all did.

To all the team at the Fairmont,
Thank you so much for making our Conference a truly fun and memorable event. The location was absolutely stunning and such a great spot for what we had planned. The accommodation was also very comfortable and the meeting rooms very well-equipped with all the AV equipment we needed as well as being very spacious. The Hospitality staff were fantastic and ready to assist in an instant to all of our many requests. Nothing was ever too much trouble. The theming of our afternoon & evening events was very well put together (even when we were threatened with rain!) and really gave our team a real treat. The Bollywood night in particular was amazing! Along with the delicious catering throughout our stay which our team raved about for days, made each day and night a positive experience.
I would have no hesitation in recommending the Fairmont Resort to anyone who is looking for a professional, highly competent team to work with in organizing their next event!
