• Mixing it up in 2017
• Technology and teambuilding
Let us ‘pose’ a question.
Where do you see your next meeting or event and what types of activities do you have in mind to keep attendees engaged with your content and their surroundings? Consider mixing it up a bit this year, find ways to keep attendees mingling by opting for a great outdoor teambuilder.
When it comes to ‘posing,’ most people know all about #selfies. Starved Rock Lodge, near Oglesby, IL, has tapped into the photographer in all of us with their ‘Selfie Stops.’ Take six selfies from their immense list of opportunities and show them to the Front Desk for your chance at a unique souvenir. Break your group into teams and create a Selfie Stop scavenger hunt for added fun and don’t forget to use the hashtag: #starvedrockselfie when sharing on your social media channels.
Adventurous groups truly enjoy the area, featuring 13 miles of hiking trails, seasonal waterfalls, 18 canyons, and trolley tours. Jenny Roulston, Sales Director for Starved Rock Lodge, suggests you “allow some free time for your attendees to experience the park and trails. This will help energize and relax the attendee and they’ll become more focused.” It takes about an hour to walk from the Lodge to the top of Starved Rock, in and out of French Canyon, and back to the Lodge.
