Offsite meetings are a great way to escape the chaos of the office so your team can focus on important projects and also build great chemistry. However, fun, productive meetings don’t just happen. In order for your event to be successful, there are a number of things you should keep in mind.
First and foremost is to hold your meeting at a facility that understands business events, like Twin Pine’s Napa Valley Casino. Below are some additional suggestions.
To get the most out of your event, you should:
Set goals and discuss “rules of engagement.”
Without a set of clearly defined goals, it’s easy for a meeting to get off track. Be sure your team knows what the goals are before you arrive. And be sure that all attendees understand that the meeting space is a “safe zone” where the focus is on positive contributions rather than criticism.

You’re getting ready to catch a flight to the Bay Area to stay at Twin Pine Casino & Hotel and tour Napa. Of course you’ll throw your keys and wallet in your travel bag, and maybe a paperback to read on the plane. But if you want to stay healthy and comfortable on your trip, there are some other items you should consider. Include these essentials in your bag and you’ll be a happy camper from takeoff to touchdown:
The air on planes is extremely dry and consequently pulls moisture from your skin. A quick spritz of a hydrating mist for your face and arms can be very refreshing. Many sprays contain antioxidants, which are great for your skin. And keeping your skin moist helps it protect you from germs.
