Eleven Experience has unveiled Taylor River Lodge, a Colorado mountain retreat with rustic-yet-chic cabins situated on a pristine trout fishing and rafting river just outside of Almont. Rock climbing, hiking and more also are on the menu of activities offered. 

Buffalo Lodge Bicycle Resort is a vintage bicycle-themed hotel with amenities and activities suited to the needs of cyclists and located on a popular designated bike route connecting Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs and close to countless miles of other biking trails. Rooms are bicycle-themed and clinics will be offered. 

SunMountain Center in Manitou Springs features three historic homes situated on 6 acres of terraced gardens, complete with walking and meditation trails and stunning views of the surrounding mountains. 

Ranchland Camps at Zapata Ranch and Chico Basin are tent camps featuring hot showers, beds, specially prepared meals and experiences unique to each property and taking guests into the heart of ranch life. 

Royal Gorge Cabins, owned by Echo Canyon River Expeditions in Cañon City, has added nine luxury cabins that host up to six people each and have views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, outdoor living space and a double-sided gas fireplace that can be enjoyed inside and outside. There also are new glamping tents that sleep four and feature french doors, king beds and more. 

The Glamping Company partners with private landowners and the U.S. Forest Service to provide Colorado getaways, setting up everything before groups and travelers arrive. Lotus Belle yurts have a unique shape and are spacious inside, measuring in at 13 feet in diameter, 6 feet tall at the walls, and about 9 feet tall in the center. 

Results from the Incentive Research Foundation’s (IRF) 2022 Incentive Travel Destination Preferences & Their Impact on Motivation confirmed that interest in incentive travel as a motivating sales reward is at an all-time high. 91% of 405 survey respondents described group incentive travel as extremely or very motivating compared to 80% last year. Individual incentive travel was rated even higher as a motivational award at 96% versus 84% last year. 

 

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.
