Most meetings rely on technology to carry the day, whether it's slideshow presentations, high speed internet, or audio equipment to make sure attendees get the message. Incorporating moments that are based on leaving those things behind may seem antithetical to the purpose of your meeting. However, setting technology and devices aside is exactly what your team needs to refocus and recharge their batteries. Read on for some ways to think outside the box, by getting outside the venue.
Fresh Air Fun
One of the easier ways to get everyone outside during your meeting is to coordinate a team bonding session. Whether it's a competitive activity or something more mindful, planning outdoor group activities gives attendees a break from sitting inside for extended periods of time. Divide up into teams for a round of golf at scenic Leatherstocking Golf Course, or hit the courts for your own tennis or pickleball tournament. For a more relaxing team experience, enjoy a yoga class on the lawn of The Otesaga with the beauty of Otsego Lake as your backdrop.
Enjoy the View
If your schedule allows for time to network and more informal group discussions, consider moving to an outdoor space rather than a smaller conference or meeting room. A more relaxed setting with scenic views could be just the inspiration your team needs to get to know one another better and make stronger connections. The Otesaga's lakeside location offers spectacular views of Otsego Lake, especially from our outdoor Fire Bar and Veranda. End your day of meetings outside with a sunset networking session so your attendees can unwind and appreciate the natural beauty that surrounds them.
Finding moments to break out of the confines of your venue can elevate your meeting to new heights. Incorporating the outdoors into your itinerary is seamless with the experienced staff at The Otesaga. Contact us today to start planning an event that will inspire your team!
