Are you planning a destination corporate event in 2020? Bleisure (destination events that combine business with leisure) are a growing trend for good reason! Sitting in the stuffy company boardroom surrounded by the same four walls is uninspiring at best. Taking your team to an environment that is inspiring, builds camaraderie, and offers a bit of rest is the best way to renew company vision and gain team loyalty, which is invaluable.

5 Compelling Reasons We Recommend Jackson Wyoming in August
Whether you are putting together a retreat, destination meeting, or a getaway for your high-level executives, Jackson offers everything you need for the perfect bleisure occasion. And may we recommend August, also known as our Golden Season, specifically for your event? Historically, August is one of our most perfect months. We would love to share it with you! Here is what you can expect.
1. THE WARM WATER AND THE IDEAS ARE FLOWING
Instead of problem-solving in an uninspired room, invite your team outside to the water’s edge to get their ideas flowing. Talk strategy around a picnic table or hold lectures in a camp chair with a drink in hand. Not only will your team be in awe of the location, but they will also be motivated by their surroundings.
Team-building exercises not only increase group participation, they also give you a creative insight to your team’s strengths and weaknesses which can help you in future staffing for projects and promotions, etc.
For the leisure side, there you can offer a trip on the water floating, white water rafting or swimming or encourage them to stay onshore and enjoy an afternoon relaxing near the water.
2. BUILD TEAM SPIRIT WITH A TEAM BIKE RIDE
Bike riding isn’t for everyone but if you think your team is up for it, the mountain bike trails are spectacular in Jackson and August is among the best time to hit the trails.
What a feat it is to conquer difficult terrain together, similar to completing a huge project. Before starting the bike ride, an encouraging speaker will go a long way toward getting everyone in a great mood. Following the ride, a speaker who finishes off the afternoon congratulating them for the hurdles they faced and conquered is a great way to build team camaraderie.
3. REACH NEW HEIGHTS
Take your team to the top… the treetops, that is! Treetop Adventure at Snow King Mountain is a challenging environment which provides the perfect setting to strengthen confidence and teamwork, encourage fresh thinking and adapt to and overcome physical, mental and emotional obstacles.
4. VIEW THE WILDLIFE – AWAKEN A LITTLE WILD IN THEIR SOULS
Want to bring out their wild side? Think about it. The foundation of most businesses is a crazy concept formed to meet a need. What better way to encourage wild thinking than to come face to face (safely) with a bear or a bald eagle? There is just something about the wildlife that nods heads to paper in story. Use that inspiration for your benefit!
5. WORLD-CLASS GOLFING – GAME ON!
What would a corporate event be without a game of golf? World Class golfing in the beautiful mountains of Jackson Wyoming is an event to be remembered. So is beating your CEO at a game!
Jackson truly is a destination that offers everything needed for a successful destination corporate event and August is among the best months to go. Give the event planners at Snow King Resort a call and let us help you plan your destination meeting or event. Learn more here >>
