The CEO of IMEX Group, Carina Bauer, recently included Wellness as one of her top meeting trends for 2016 (and rightfully so). Implementing wellness programs can positively impact the physical, cognitive and social wellness of your attendees.
In the past, corporate meetings and conferences have carried a somewhat stale connotation – enclosed, windowless rooms, long periods of inactivity and eating options that were far from healthy. Thankfully, the wellness trend is becoming more of an M&C expectation as the options for wellness in meetings and conventions continue to grow.
Wellness accommodations should be one of your priorities when choosing a destination for your meeting. Park City makes it easy to implement wellness into your meeting and destination with numerous activities, restaurants, social settings and crisp mountain air.
