A generation ago, people talked about the power lunch. Now, taking the “work from anywhere” trend to a new level,  Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino has introduced the “power palapa.”

These beach palapas, which line Aruba’s shoreline, have been outfitted with everything meeting attendees need to stay connected during breaks, including a power and USB charging station, laptop cooling pad, laptop sunshade privacy cover and a power bowl with hydrating aloe juice or coconut water.

Nestled on 15 acres of white sand and lush tropical gardens along Palm Beach, the 357-room Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino is a designated AAA four-diamond property with 39,000 square feet of flexible indoor & outdoor event space, ranging from gardens and the beach to the Morris Lapidus Grand Ballroom (capacity: 900). Just seven miles from the airport, the resort is steps away from nightlife, restaurants and shopping.

 

Nebraska’s largest city, Omaha, continues to up its game as a destination for meetings and events and leisure travel. Working my first two years out of college for a large bank holding company based in Omaha, the recent announcements caught my attention.

 

Explore new renovations and hotels for your group in Ventura County Coast. Mix business with sunshine! Host a safe, productive meeting at one of our hotels, then bond as a team relaxing at the beach or shopping, whale watching or exploring Channel Islands National Park (also known as “the Galapagos Islands of North America”).

 

Incorporating the host city into the framework of the meeting is an effective way to enhance the content of the conference.

Host in Local Hotel
While attendees might flock to flag hotels, consider a boutique hotel as overflow to showcase the destination. In Lubbock, the DoubleTree by Hilton offers a local flair through design and cuisine; meanwhile, just a few streets over, the Cotton Court Hotel pays tribute to the area’s cotton history.
