Do you need to get ready for training events in the next year? That means it is time to start searching where to hold the annual conference for the company. There are a lot of factors involved in this decision. Here are some things to consider about choosing Phoenix, Arizona to hold your annual conference.
Phoenix has a major airport. “Sky Harbor” is one of the busiest in the United States, hosting major hubs for airlines such as US Airways and Southwest. Yet, this huge airport has been rated as one of the friendliest anywhere and boasts a large team of volunteers able and ready to assist travelers. Your conference guests will find them in the purple jackets in all terminals. This clean airport is easy to access from anywhere in the greater Phoenix/Scottsdale area and should be a big factor in choosing your next meeting location.
Another factor is the great weather. Few storms or winter complications delay air travel or car travel. How many times have you worried about the impact of weather on your conference travel? Come to Arizona and relax. Instead of being limited to certain months to hold your event as you are in other major cities, you can even have a great conference in the middle of December if you wanted to.
Transportation is easy in the Phoenix, Arizona area. Many of the hotels will pick up the guests from the airport, free of charge. In addition to that, there are many good choices for affordable ground transportation into the Phoenix suburbs should you be holding your event in one of those cities. These transportation issues give you peace of mind for safety of the guests of the conference.
Once they get to the hotel, they will have plenty of things to do. Many of your conference guests will come in a day early or stay an extra day to take in day trips to locations such as the Grand Canyon, the artsy city of Sedona or the laid-back vibe of historical Tucson. They can also schedule a visit to the historical Hoover Dam and the newly completed “Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge” which in itself is an amazing piece of construction. If your team has golfers as members, there are dozens of excellent courses that will challenge their golf skills.
Arizona is a hospitality state, too. You can easily make a list of hotels that will give you a price break for holding the conference. Check with your meeting planner at the hotel and find out if the hotel will give discounts on attractions in the area to give the guests a break and discover Phoenix.
There are plenty of things to do in downtown Phoenix and the surrounding area. Make some creative ideas for your conference and have a theme. Then, see if some local businesses like restaurants and clubs will give discounts for your guests.
Your next conference in Arizona could be your best yet.
When you choose Arizona for your next event, why not use an Arizona-based presenter or speaker? You will save money on travel costs while still getting national-level training. For example, consider Sean Buvala as your Arizona event’s speaker. Teaching communication skills and storytelling techniques since 1986, Sean has spoken to thousands of people across many industries. Your conference attendees will benefit from a keynote, workshop or breakouts session with Sean and your accountant will love you for making a smart financial move.
