The Best Corporate Event Destinations You Probably Didn’t Know About

A corporate event should be something other than a stuffy affair that is all business, not in today’s era and not with today’s talent. Modern corporate event planning should foster team spirit, showcase company achievements, and serve as a valuable networking opportunity for industry peers. 

A lot goes into making a corporate event, including amenities that our team at MTI Events can always help with. However, one of the most fundamental things you will need to consider when planning your next corporate event is the location.

The destination of your corporate event sets the tone for the entire event. Choosing a desirable spot will influence your attendees’ experiences and attitudes, which can and will significantly impact your event’s overall success. 

Explore Unique Corporate Event Destinations

A well-chosen location provides premier, state-of-the-art facilities that your company can adequately organize out of — but it should also do more than that. The right destination will also offer unique experiences that will have a lasting, positive impression on attendees. Just take a look at the following outstanding corporate event destinations and what they have to offer for the forward-thinking business organizer:

San Francisco, California

San Francisco is a premier location for corporate events associated with the technology sector, as the city is home to a very vibrant tech scene. Here, you will find a rich array of innovative venues, such as the Moscone Center, featuring the very best equipment and flexible working space to host any type of corporate event. 

Outside of the main business portion of your corporate event, San Francisco offers a diverse array of attractions that will cater to just about every personality. There are iconic landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge and bustling cultural attractions like Fisherman’s Wharf and its neighboring Little Italy community. 

Finally, getting here is easy, with San Francisco International Airport offering nonstop flights to and from major destinations worldwide!

Cape Town, South Africa

Over the past decade, Cape Town has steadily become one of the most prominent business tourism destinations. Indeed, its major port and the Cape Town International Airport make it well-connected to prominent global destinations, but it’s more about what this city offers. 

Corporate event organizers can choose from several state-of-the-art venues to host their main business attraction, including the Cape Town International Convention Centre and the Century City Conference Centre, a massive venue located in the heart of Cape Town’s business district. After your meetings are through or between, engage participants with team-building activities in picturesque places like the Cape Winelands, Robben Island, and Table Mountain. 

Lisbon, Portugal

Lisbon is often overlooked when it comes to business tourism and destination corporate events, which gives the business owner quite the advantage. Here, the dollar goes further, and you can more readily reserve meeting locations, group hotel accommodations, and more. 

Popular conference facilities include the Lisbon Congress Centre, located near the historic district of Belem and boasting several auditoriums and pavilions. Alternatively, choose a more relaxed setting such as the Pestana Palace Hotel & National Monument, which features its own elegant meeting spaces overlooking lush gardens and landscaping. Lison’s location at the nexus of the Atlantic Ocean and Tagus River offers guests plenty of beautiful visits and fun group activities like sailing. 

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Cabo San Lucas is another gorgeous waterfront destination for corporate events. Located at the very southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula, it offers residents and visitors stunning views. 

This community is renowned for its luxurious resorts, exciting day adventures, and vibrant nightlife. Combine this with world-class business facilities and get a premier location for your next corporate event. For example, consider booking the conference center, meeting facilities, and guest rooms at the Hilton Los Cabos Beach & Golf Resort or the Sheraton Grand Los Cabos Hacienda del Mar to create a one-stop location or jumping-off platform for your guests. Naturally, they will only want to stay on-site for a short time, and the city of Cabo San Lucas has plenty of things your guests can do and enjoy between business events.

Kansas City, Missouri 

We would be remiss in this article if we did not mention our hometown of Kansas City! KC may not have all the exotic flash of a place like Cabo San Lucas or the historic glamor of Lisbon, Portugal. However, it can still stand on its own regarding business destinations and amenities – and you can heavily benefit from having a local team help with your destination event management. 

Consider, for example, booking a corporate event at Bartle Hall, which is part of the Kansas City Convention Center. This location connects with all the major downtown hotels and modern amenities for a premier event. Or keep things more low-key by booking at the Union Station, a historic and iconic venue that offers meeting spaces in a unique setting. When the speakers are all done, and the papers are signed, head down to the Power and Light District, the city’s vibrant entertainment district that offers the perfect setting for after-hours relaxation and networking.
