Team Building

February 2019

One question asked in the 2019 Meetings Today Trends Survey was “What activities do you incorporate into your meetings?” The responses surprised me with golf second highest at 38%; spa/spa activities at 31%; sporting events 26%; and attractions and theme parks 27%. Teambuilding activities were at 53%, the highest of all activities. I reached out to John Chen who is a guru of teambuilding for his thoughts.

Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa, located only 20 minutes from downtown San Antonio, debuted its Rodeo Olympics for groups in collaboration with Goen South Events. Through the teambuilding program, attendees can take part in a variety of Texas-themed activities and a few others they might not associate with Texas, including roping exercises with calf replicas, stick “horse” races, cow chip toss competitions, and even armadillo races.

Northwest Florida—or Florida’s Panhandle—which includes the Emerald Coast, Pensacola, South Walton, Panama City Beach and Tallahassee, among other beach towns—features a host of teambuilding activities for groups, from outdoor pursuits like stand-up paddleboarding to painting in an art gallery.

From boating to bird-watching and everything in between, countless experiences in Florida's Space Coast and Daytona Beach ensure that meetings won’t be all work and no play. The Space Coast, known for its spectacular launches at Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, also has some of the best beaches across the globe, where groups can explore diverse natural habitats.

Entertaining outings and team-bonding opportunities are available throughout Washington for groups interested in a fun evening away from the convention center or host hotel. Among the possibilities? Everything from escape rooms and group dining to laser tag, mixology classes and bioluminescent sea kayaking will positively punctuate a day of meetings in the Evergreen State.

Planners have many teambuilding opportunities to choose from throughout Southern Ohio, including several that showcase the unique attributes of each destination. Groups can tap into Cincinnati’s brewing and baseball heritage, participate in the arts in Columbus and explore Dayton’s aviation history. Following are details about those and some other standout ideas, including ziplining above Warren County’s wilderness, for groups interested in adding a team-bonding activity to the meeting agenda.

Thirty-nine diverse cities and towns make up the Palm Beaches, spanning more than 2,300 square miles across 47 miles of beautiful Atlantic Ocean beaches. In addition to the beach, there’s 125 miles of the Intracoastal Waterway. With so much water, swimming, boating, fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, paddleboarding and myriad other activities on the beach are all right there for the asking.
