Meetings are shifting away from the traditional and moving towards new, modern, and fun spaces that allow creativity and innovation to flow freely. Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa, in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., started a new meeting initiative, called ideate sessions.

The creative, fun, colorful nature of children inspired these meeting sessions. Ideate sessions are approved by kids, and made for those who are kids at heart. Researchers have found that bright, fun spaces encourage increased creativity and productivity.

The sessions will take place in the Mighty Oaks room, which is used for both kids programming and meetings. During “Ideate” meetings, corporate groups can work on chalkboards and play foosball, all while taking in the views of the property’s lawn, oak trees, and lagoon.

Breaks from meetings are also becoming more important, and the Sawgrass Marriott team encourages groups to incorporate exercise or other play activities to increase the team’s energy. They also suggest providing snacks for your team or offering five minutes to allow members to recharge.
