The work doesn’t stop. You find yourself at a conference, rushing through your lunch break to check emails, make calls, to keep the ball rolling back at the office while you are away. What if there was something that made you pause?
Great ideas are born in the most unexpected of places. Could it be that taking a deep breath of fresh air from your ocean-view hotel balcony is the thing that gives you that moment of clarity? Would taking five minutes to put your feet in the ocean reinvigorate you for a day of learning that really resonates? The better you are at switching off the more you will accomplish when you switch on, which is why you should consider conferencing in a regional destination.
Getting out of the everyday and into a regional location affords you an opportunity to help open your mind to new ideas by mixing business with pleasure. Be just far enough away from the city that you can’t rush back to the office for (yet another) meeting yet close enough that the drive is a pleasant way to transition your brain from ‘hustle and bustle’ to a ‘ready to learn’ mindset allowing you to make the most of your conference.
And what about those great inclusions that you can add to your conference when you have room to move? Think about the impact you can make having lunch by the pool with a spectacular ocean view, experiencing street food markets as a fun alternative to a 3 course dinner or enjoying team building outside in the natural surrounds. There is so much opportunity to offer something a little unconventional that is guaranteed to be unforgettable.
