How to Make Your Corporate Meeting a Treat (without leaving Kansas)

We are coming up on that time of year again. You know, the one where businesses in and around the Wichita area are starting to plan corporate retreats/meetings for their employees. Giving hard-working employees a reward for their efforts is a great incentive that can make employees more productive and teams more cohesive in the long run. Score! Having your corporate meeting in a place with beautiful views and fun activities will get employees excited when they see that invite slide into their inbox. This all sounds well and good, but you understandably don’t have the capacity to fly your employees out to Cabo for a week—so what do you do? Pssst...a private oasis awaits you, just minutes from downtown Wichita.

Planning an Impressive Corporate Meeting in Wichita at BrightWater Bay

Your job is to make your corporate meeting retreat productive and ours is to make it special. Key ingredients include:

  • Postcard-worthy views
  • A cozy meeting area and accommodating presentation spaces
  • Activities outside of the meeting space that’ll make your employees feel like kids again

Spectacular Scenic Views

Having your corporate meeting retreat somewhere with beautiful views is as crucial as the fresh air you’ll breathe there. You don’t want to sell this experience to your employees as something special and then put them in a stale boardroom. Yuck!

At BrightWater Bay, our two-story event venue accommodates up to 100 people with 2,600 square feet of meeting space. The Venue boasts views of BrightWater Bay’s 44 acres of sparkling water, billowing trees and rosy, Kansas sunshine (swoon).

Meeting and Presentation Areas

Not only is this change of scenery nice to look at, a more relaxed environment is one of the top reasons people book offsite meetings. Hosting a meeting in a new environment will improve attentiveness and overall meeting productivity. In fact, 63% of respondents to the survey above said their offsite business gatherings are almost always more productive than onsite ones. Let’s do this more often, shall we?

The Venue at BrightWater Bay offers:

  • Tables and chairs available for rental
  • Dual large screen displays
