The Conference Center Difference: TeambuildingOn August 20, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
Hi, I’m Julie Charros-Betancor; Sales Manager at The Woodlands Resort. There’s no faster way to add fun and excitement to your next gathering than with a themed event or team-building activity. Rather than a typical welcome reception or closing night dinner, transform your event with a theme. Themed events can transport your guests from the Big Easy to the beaches of Waikiki. You’ll find that most meeting venues already have props, backdrops and accessories. While themed events provide attendees with an opportunity to network, team-building activities leave attendees
with a sense of accomplishment and renewed enthusiasm. A favorite of ours is an old-fashioned chili cook-off. Participants create a one-of-a-kind chili dish using food items and ingredients from the market place. If you are hosting the event at a conference center or hotel, have the Executive Chef be the judge. At the end of the challenge, everyone will enjoy sampling the various chili creations. Another option is to step into the great
outdoors and hit the links. Even non-golfers can get in on the action with a scramble, longest drive or closest to the pin competition. In the end, gathering together for memorable, themed events and team-building activities provide opportunities to build stronger
relationships, provide inspiration and a form for breakthrough thinking. I’m Julie Charros-Betancor. Remember, it’s time to meet.
