With 2024 on the horizon, the world of meetings and events is ready to transform how we gather and connect. At The Otesaga, meetings transcend the ordinary, elevating into experiences that blend elegance with innovation. Nestled amidst the serene beauty of Cooperstown, our venue sets the stage for gatherings that inspire, connect, and leave an indelible mark on all who attend. Here are the meeting trends to watch out for in 2024.
More Than the Meeting
Meetings are no longer confined to boardrooms; they've evolved into experiential journeys that extend beyond the confines of a venue. Whether it's team bonding activities by Otsego Lake, historical excursions to the National Baseball Hall of Fame, or strolling Cooperstown's iconic Main Street, we believe that intertwining the meeting agenda with the exploration of
our vibrant surroundings enriches the overall experience. These moments of discovery create cherished memories that linger long after the meeting adjourns.
Sustainability as Standard
The focus on sustainability in meetings remains at the forefront, with a greater emphasis on eco-friendly practices. From reduced waste initiatives to carbon-neutral events, look for sustainability to be a non-negotiable aspect of event planning. At The Otesaga, We are dedicated to reducing our ecological footprint by incorporating environmental best practices wherever we can, from green weddings to eco-friendly cleaning products.
Versatile and adaptable spaces continue to be important for meetings both big and small. Venues that offer multifunctional areas catering to various meeting sizes and formats will be highly sought after.

We also offer yoga classes and will soon introduce meditation classes and wellness workshops, a great way to relax during a busy meeting or conference.
