Torquay 2018

Last update 3.10.2017



21st-23rd September 2018

Preparations are already under way for the 90th Rotary District 1070 Conference 2018 in the seaside resort of Torquay, the English Riviera!

Come back to this website on regular basis for details of the conference programme including, events, speakers and registration details.

The English Riviera offers a beautiful – and practical – location for the 1070 conference in the South West. 
Just approx. four hours from the East Midlands, the English Riviera offers the complete conference package with accommodation and activities and a relaxing blend of mild climate, beaches and countryside.

Torquay offers delegates and guests the best of both worlds – a place to relax but also a place with lots to do.
Famed for its award-winning beaches Torquay is in many ways the quintessential seaside resort. After a day of meetings, a stroll along the palm tree-lined promenade is the ideal way to unwind.
But for those wishing for a little added stimulus, Torquay has it covered. From the Agatha Christie Mile to the Living Coasts Zoo, from bars to restaurants to harbourside shops, time away from the conference hall can be as action packed or as relaxing as your delegates choose.
Paignton too, with its iconic pier and expansive beaches, is a classic English Rivera resort, full of charm and with plenty to do.
Paignton’s many attractions include an internationally renowned zoo, a steam railway, numerous bars and restaurants and a coastal path with unforgettable views.

A traditional maritime town, Brixham is full of history – from a life-size replica of Sir Frances Drake’s Golden Hind to the Heritage Museum. There’s a great choice of café’s, bars and restaurants and naturally it’s the place to visit for great seafood.

The Conference Centre

The conference venue  is the Riviera International Centre, located in the heart of the community and with an inspirational setting by the sea.
They have delivered an award-winning track record of events and are committed to providing a first class conference for Rotary.
