San Francisco Marriott Marquis and San Jose Marriott have introduced “Meet Well,” a new team-building initiative that gives groups a healthier option. The initiative will include healthy banquet and coffee break menus, active meeting options, wellness topics and speakers, body-friendly seat spacing, meeting planning perks and volunteer options.

“Anticipating guests’ needs is our business,” says Chuck Pacioni, general manager, San Francisco Marriott Marquis. “Approximately 36 percent of people polled by Nielson report being fit and healthy as their top resolution for the new year. Meet Well is a natural fit for our hotels, our destinations and our guests.”

At San Francisco Marriott Marquis, a new fitness center and spa has opened. The space offers top-of-the-line fitness equipment, and customized spa treatments. Guests may also enjoy sandwiches, salads, pastas, healthy bars and sweets, and other goods at Pete’s Coffee, located in the hotel’s Mission Street Pantry.

Health and fitness is also important to San Jose Marriott Streams, where they greet their guests with spa water and continually provide a relaxing, rejuvenating experience. Guests may partake in the outdoor pool, fitness center or bike rental program, which allow guests to stay active and experience the San Jose area. The hotel also launched the “Over-The-Top” app, allowing guests to stream fitness videos in the privacy of their own rooms.

The widely recognized Chateau on the Lake Resort, Spa, & Convention Center of Branson, Missouri, has captured the coveted “Best of MidAmerica Award” from Meetings Today magazine. Readers of the magazine determined recipients of the award, voting on a handful of the top MidAmerica meeting sites based off of quality of meeting space, guest rooms, services and amenities, food and beverage offerings, staff, availability of technical equipment, recreational facilities and activities, and overall experience.

 

Oklahoma City officials recently unveiled the MAPS 3 Oklahoma City Convention Center’s new brand featuring a colorful, high-energy logo.

“Everyone has seen the rise of the MAPS 3 Oklahoma City Convention Center on the east side of Scissortail Park, and its completion will be another MAPS game-changer for our City,” says Mayor David Holt. “Today’s logo unveiling is another milestone on that path.”

 

Hard Rock International has announced its partnership with Clean the World (CTW), a leading organization in WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene). This partnership provides business travelers the opportunity to participate in a team-building activity while giving back to the community by putting together hygiene kits for those in need.
