GROUP EVENTS THAT “WOW”
Each destination provides a unique canvas on which you can create group experiences that resonate with your attendees. If you are looking to make a lasting impression on your group, we recommend you look outside of the hotel ballroom. Here are some ideas to help:
Add an interactive element by inviting locals artisans to set up a market that allows your guests to shop onsite for authentic hand-made goods. Add a photo booth with props, or check out live events. We’ve set up lawn games, sumo wrestling with blow up suits and Portuguese tile painting stations. Your partners can help you find a way to add engaging elements that fit the personality of your group.
Add some Edutainment to foster appreciation and connection, incorporate teaching into an entertainment element. For example, Copper Mountain, CO is located on Ute Indian ground; you can honor this heritage by opening your event with a blessing from Ute elders. Foreign dignitaries & government officials are a nice touch at a welcome reception.
Visit a local villa, castle, palace or spectacular home. Every destination has a host of beautiful properties lined up to welcome your guests. Some of them will even allow your hotel/resort to cater if food & beverage minimum is a concern. Our “After the Harvest” party included three wineries onsite for tastings and grape stomping for the guests, at a Tuscan Villa in Florence.
