From the majestic views of pine trees caressing the mountains for miles around, to snow piling upwards beyond the eye’s reach… there’s nothing quite like being in the mountains. Mountain towns have the small-town charm and air of being surrounded by the natural wonders of the world.
Finding a location for that big meeting you’ve been planning may seem easy, if you’re thinking close to home. But picture what could be a meeting to remember that boosts morale and gets your attendees pumped to be there and ready for what’s to come.
Even if big cities and towns have many nearby amenities hgm to offer, there’s something unique and charming about taking your meeting into a town that’s smack-dab in the middle of nature. Nothing says “let’s get this meeting started” than some fresh air to breath and breathtaking views (okay, and coffee.)
Here are 5 reasons to choose a mountain town for your next big meeting.
1. The view, obviously – Stray away from the suburbs or town that provides stuffy rooms surrounded by walls separating you and your everyday life of roads, buildings and highways. There’s nothing like having a meeting, gathering or spending time in nature’s wonders.
The luxury of having a meeting in a mountain town is the ability to see cascading hills or snow-topped trees in between meetings and as the scenery of your next planned event. Extra bonus: Amazing backdrop for company photos!
2. Solitude, a getaway – Being in a crowded area like a bustling city or by a big highway could be distracting and create more chaos to a meeting. Some would say productivity hinges on the ability to find solitude to recharge, and mountain towns provide that quiet, serene, and peace that you and your teammates might need, especially if discussing heavy topics like finances and planning.
