If you are a meeting planner, lucky you! 2020 is one of the most exciting times to plan a corporate event at Pronghorn Resort.

For meeting planners, a new decade offers the opportunity to get creative and think outside the box. 

Escape the ordinary corporate meeting and plan something different for your team this year!

Central Oregon offers the perfect mix of work and play, and the Huntington Lodge is your team’s ideal home base. We have all of the technology and sophisticated spaces you need, plus access to endless adventure and team-building opportunities. 

Remember, a little fun and fresh air emboldens creativity and boosts profitability!

At Pronghorn Resort, we will fill your need for productive boardroom sessions, while at the same time offering the opportunity for valuable and unique team-building activities and experiences. 

Here are some helpful tips for creating a successful corporate meeting in 2020.

  1. Make team-building a priority.

Team-building should top the list of your corporate meeting objectives. Why? High-performing teams require good communication, trust, and compassion. These aren’t qualities you’ll build in the boardroom. The good stuff usually happens outside of the traditional work environment, where a team’s skill and comfort are tested in new challenges and experiences.

  1. Think outside the box.

It’s a new decade. Your corporate meetings should feel new, too. Take the opportunity to do something outside the box and outside the boardroom. Meeting planners we collaborate with are interested in these two unique trends as well as golf tournaments, helicopter excursions to mountain lake venues, and for a really extraordinary experience, a cave dinner.

  1. Incorporate wellness.

Wellness in the workplace continues to be an important trend. When your employees take care of their mind, body and spirit, their creativity, productivity, and happiness increase. A few days, together as a team, exploring the benefits of holistic health can be incredibly valuable to the longevity of your team. Wellness experiences that are perfect for corporate groups include:

  • lava cave yoga
  • tepee sound meditation
  • crystal healing
  • sage bundling workshop
  1. Choose a venue with the technology you need. 

This should go without saying, but as technology needs change it’s important to be aware of every bell and whistle that’s offered at your chosen venue. At Pronghorn Resort, our technology offerings flow seamlessly into your surroundings and your experience. Enjoy state-of-the-art projection screens for presentations and live streams, as well as the latest audio/video capabilities. 

  1. Get away from it all.

When you’re choosing a venue, location is important. You’ll likely be looking for easy access to an airport and/or a simple car ride for your attendees. It’s also nice to choose a location that feels remote and removed, so your team can really leave it all behind and get down to the important work and progress you’re hoping to achieve. Pronghorn Resort is the perfect mix. 

The resort is just a 20-minute drive from the Redmond Airport with direct flights from Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Salt Lake City, Phoenix, Denver, Las Vegas, and Seattle. 

We’re also just a 3-hour drive from Portland.

Despite proximity, once you arrive at our oasis, your team will feel like they are a world away, and ready to dig into all that you have planned. Mission accomplished.
