Snowbasin Resort in Huntsville is offering several breakaway packages to corporate groups staying at The Grand American Hotel in nearby Salt Lake City.

CAMPFIRE COLLECTIVE

Ride the Needles Gondola to the top of the mountain for a reception and live acoustic music before a Western buffet with meats like elk loin, buffalo brisket and American Wagyu prime rib served with all the trimmings. End the night being serenaded by cowboy poets while making s’mores and enjoying storytellers and yard games.

DINNER & A MOVIE

This faux Hollywood experience includes photos taken on the red carpet with a Wasatch Mountain backdrop before a celebratory reception and dinner. Next, head to the lawn and view a motion pic - ture of the group’s choice and savor live music under the stars.

FOOD & FLOR ALS

Snowbasin Resort’s culinary team helps organize either a Salsa Contest (les - son, team salsa-making and judging) or Shellfish 101 (demonstration, preparation and shellfish-themed dinner). Another option is a Centerpiece Scavenger Hunt, where groups head out with guides to forage the trails for flora and other items needed to create a centerpiece for a campfire dinner.

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.

 

Sheraton Dallas Hotel has introduced a new outdoor event space under its new event programming, Dare to Outdoors. The hotel’s catering team has partnered with Pacific Plaza Park, a 3.7-acre green space in Downtown Dallas. The park features a 31,950 square-foot lawn space and permanent seating, as well as night-sky friendly lights for star-watchers. Three food truck power outlets are available and standard outlets are located throughout the park.
