Summer is at its peak, and it’s only a matter of time before another deep freeze sets in across the nation. So why not take advantage of the sunshine and cool breeze while planning a corporate event. There are tons of outdoor activities to center your event around. Whether you’re demonstrating corporate hospitality, customer appreciation, sales meetings, or team building, embracing the great outdoors could be a much-needed change of pace. 1. Tee off. According to the National Golf Foundation, there are an estimated 25 million golfers in the United States, which means many of your employees, clients, and industry peers are probably fans of the game. ESPN numbers show that there are upwards of 15,300 golf courses across the country – ranging from small public courses to famous clubs such as Augusta National – so there’s a good chance a great course for a corporate event is in your neck of the woods. 2. America’s pastime. Attending a baseball game is a very popular activity to center a corporate event around. After all, who doesn’t love peanuts and crackerjacks? The MLB regular season runs from April to October, and with each team scheduled to play 162 games, there are many opportunities to take clients and coworkers for a night at the ballpark. In fact, corporate outings at MLB parks are so popular, that the majority of stadiums offer unique options to host large-scale events – check out Yankee Stadium Events as a great example. 3. A day at the races. You don’t have to break out a fancy hat and head to Churchill Downs, but hosting a corporate event at a well-manicured horse track is a great outing on a beautiful summer day. Luckily, you don’t have to be a gambler to enjoy the racetrack, as many venues offer great corporate meeting facilities as well as world-class bars and restaurants, paired with a beautiful and entertaining backdrop. 4. Rock out. The summer season is the perfect time for outdoor concert series, and nearly every town and city offers some type of outdoor venue hosting, pop, rock, folk, blues, jazz, and orchestra performances. Combine this entertainment with a private tent and a delicious caterer and you’ll definitely impress your peers and clients. 5. Sail the high seas. Hosting an event on a yacht or private boat is a fantastic way to get clients and employees together in a unique setting. Whether you’re near the ocean, river, or lake, there are many different types of corporate events you can hold on a boat, such as a booze cruise (drinks and music), dinner cruise, or a historical and architectural tour. Summer days are quickly getting shorter, so if you want to take advantage of the warm weather you better hurry.
