Conference Activities

Waterfront Yoga Session at The Briars Resort

Create unity and cooperation with our conference recreation options for team building and fun

There comes a time in every conference when you need to step away from our well-appointed meeting rooms for networking, team building, and just plain fun to clear your collective minds. The Briars offers a selection of conference activities at the resort and in the surrounding area near beautiful Lake Simcoe.

Our lakeside location gives you ample space for creativity and fun. Fresh air, exercise, and breathing space facilitate camaraderie and fresh thinking with our in-house team-building program, or we can introduce you to our capable partners.

Our recreational facilities include indoor and outdoor pools, sauna, whirlpool, fitness room, four tennis courts, bike rentals and walking trails. You can also book a round on our golf course. Learn more about the conference activities that you and your group can enjoy.
