South Carolina’s Montage Palmetto Bluff resort just recently released its new meeting and event spaces. From its $100 million expansion, the resort added a new Inn building that includes 74 guest rooms, a new steakhouse called Jessamine, a spa and a Wilson Ballroom.

Debuting in September, The Montage is known for hosting countless events such as weddings, retreats, corporate events, and they also created its second onsite chapel.

The Montage Palmetto Bluff now features 16,000 square feet of meeting and event space for any specific function you need. The Wilson Ballroom is 6,696 square feet and perfect for a larger group event or can be divisible into multiple rooms for smaller events. The new Somerset Chapel offers distinguished architecture, space that fits up to 185 guests, natural light and a beautiful view of a lagoon.

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:
