Why does a meeting have to take place in a banquet room within four walls? Recently, we worked with a corporate group that had a limited amount of time pack it all in.. talk about the meeting content and network, leaving no time to experience and see the host city. So we suggested, "why not have your meeting at a plantation overlooking the river?" WOW, was this a huge hit! Taking guests away from the traditional meeting setting and creating a new "room" not only changes the mood of the participants, but, as we observed, created more conversation topics and conversing among the guests. So, Where will your meeting take you?
