Today, attendees expect an experience—they want to meet and be entertained in a destination. Skift’s article, 3 Trends That Will Disrupt the Meetings and Events Industry in 2017, mentions how convergence trends are on the rise and how meetings are becoming more experiential and more engaging. The article mentions, “Convergence is the new catalyst for starting conversations naturally among different types of people to drive organic networking and build engagement.”
Park City’s venues, vendors and pre & post music & concert activities can add this experiential element to your meeting or event. Our experts, Tonya, Kim & Carolyn can help you come up with vibrant and creative ways to converge your attendees’ meeting experience with entertainment.
“Music is very much a part of the Park City entertainment scene,” Carolyn Creek-McCallister, Senior National Sales Manager of Visit Park City, explains. “Groups can enjoy unique off-site opportunities to experience world class entertainment while picnicking on the slopes of Deer Valley Resort during the Deer Valley Music Festival each summer. Now in its 14th year, the Festival features the Utah Symphony—one of only 15 year round symphony orchestras in the country—along with their guest performers. This year Diana Krall, The Beach Boys, Ben Folds, and Patti Austin are some of the talent who will be featured along with the symphony.
Also, Park City Institute, one of our area’s successful non-profit programs, hosts the Big Stars, Bright Nights Concert Series, which also takes place at Deer Valley,” Carolyn mentions. “Their scheduling includes well-known talent from a variety of musical genres.” As a unique meeting space, the Eccles Center at Park City Institute is a state-of-the-art performing arts auditorium with a theater capacity of 1,269 and reception capacity of 150.
