Mil­len­ni­als At Meet­ings

Business Traveler (USA) - - SPECIAL REPORT - By Har­vey Chip­kin

Of course Mil­len­ni­als are trav­el­ing for meet­ings as well, and ho­tels cater­ing to that seg­ment – whether in­de­pen­dent or part of a chain – are adapt­ing to their par­tic­u­lar tastes. Ex­am­ples are abun­dant; here are just a few: The new Hil­ton West Palm Beach Sher­a­ton Puerto Rico Ho­tel & Casino re­cently pur­chased sta­tion­ary bikes for at­ten­dees to ex­er­cise dur­ing meet­ings and of­fers stand­ing meet­ings upon re­quest.

Boast­ing its own Run­ning Concierge, The Westin La Paloma Re­sort & Spa leads group runs around the desert oa­sis with views of Sabino Canyon Moun­tains. The on­site New Bal­ance Gear Lend­ing pro­gram al­lows guests to bor­row any needed work­out attire (shoes in­cluded).

Dur­ing the Ae­rial Yoga work­shops at the new Well & Be­ing at the Four Sea­sons Re­sort and Club Dal­las at Las Coli­nas, meet­ing at­ten­dees move through var­i­ous yoga poses while sus­pended in a gi­ant fab­ric ham­mock three feet in the air.

In­ter­ject­ing en­ergy into meet­ings, the Hil­ton Or­lando of­fers an “Amaz­ing Race”-styled event for groups. Uti­liz­ing the prop­erty’s on­site lazy river and wa­ter slide, this high in­ten­sity event pro­motes team­work and ca­ma­raderie in a fun and com­pet­i­tive at­mos­phere.
