AAA Four Diamond Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa, located in Bonita Springs, Fla., not only boasts 85,000 square feet of event space, but they also just added an outdoor event and venue: The Lazy River with water slides. Providing guests with a leisurely outdoor activity, the Lazy River and water slides allow attendees to get some sun and relax, and is especially well-suited for those traveling with their families.

This recent update debuted November 2016 following a $4.1 million renovation to the resort’s indoor meeting space in early 2016. These renovations included a modernized design and a variety of high-tech capabilities such as computer-controlled LED light, cove lighting, wall sconces and efficient chandeliers. The entrance foyer now includes charging stations and TVs within two private technology nooks, each built with bamboo and American walnut flooring. “The addition of The Lazy River is an added bonus to the array of event and leisure venues we offer that are immersed in nature,” says David Gauthier, director of sales and marketing. “Approximately half of our business comes from meetings and incentives, so we wanted to add another element to their experience. Additionally, our indoor venues feature bright and airy spaces with favorable features that have earned us significant awards.”

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.  

 

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Choosing a career in the event industry is not for the faint of heart. Let’s face it: Event planning is stressful. The last-minute changes, demands from clients and surmounting urgency of a quickly approaching event can make it difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

As a new mother, I’m right there with you and need just as much help developing a healthy work-life balance. In my experiences working in events, I’ve found the following to be helpful ways to care for my mental health, despite being in a stressful profession:
