    For those about to rock. 

BROOKLYN BOULDERS

FIRST ASCENT
First Ascent’s Block 37 location in the Loop is a popular spot for corporate team-building activities. So much so, in fact, that the facility has developed a series of intensive problem-solving programs that can be tailored to engage each group to improve communication, trust and leadership. 773.564.9815

VERTICAL ENDEAVORS
This location in Glendale Heights is one of the largest climbing wall facilities in the U.S., meaning plenty of space and options for groups. Crews can take private lessons, meet in breakout rooms, try out the New Heights teambuilding program or rent out a section of auto-belay machines after hours for a more independent experience. 630.784.9000

Richmond, the capital of Virginia, is a city rich in history. It’s here, in 1775, that Patrick Henry famously declared “Give me liberty or give me death.” And while the extensively renovated Hilton Richmond Downtown can’t trace its roots back quite that far, it is housed in the historic former Miller & Rhoads department store, which dates back to the end of the 19th century. 

 

Every planner wants to create experiences that make meeting attendees feel they’re on top of the world. If you’re planning a meeting in northwest North Carolina, you can achieve that with a visit to Grandfather Mountain. Soaring 5,946 feet and estimated to be 300 million years old, with some rock formations dating back 1.2 billion years, the peak off the Blue Ridge Parkway near Blowing Rock, is accessible by vehicle and by a paved road.

 

Sheraton Dallas Hotel has introduced a new outdoor event space under its new event programming, Dare to Outdoors. The hotel’s catering team has partnered with Pacific Plaza Park, a 3.7-acre green space in Downtown Dallas. The park features a 31,950 square-foot lawn space and permanent seating, as well as night-sky friendly lights for star-watchers. Three food truck power outlets are available and standard outlets are located throughout the park.
