The annual corporate event: the event most corporations do to help improve team building, reduce stress, and bring the company together. Most of these events take place in convention centers across the United States, but there can be more interactive and exciting ways for coworkers to connect. So, what makes an event non-conventional? Non-conventional corporate events mix professionalism with creativity. This technique energizes the event by providing new and exciting ways for people to engage and interact.
Location can be a unique way to tie in the overall experience for the guests. Picking non-conventional locations can add to the excitement of the event and be a major WOW factor for those attending. Here are a couple examples of a non-conventional location:
Wineries and Breweries: Picking local vendors can not only be a unique educational experience for guests attending the event but shows support to the local community and businesses in the area. This location can be a unique way to express interest in the community while maintaining a unique and fun experience for the company members. This will provide educational experiences, exceptional outings, and enticing venue options.
