Kalahari Resorts: What Attendees are


looking for in Winter • Locations in which they can bring their families - The desire to extend trips and bring families along increases appeal for resorts during the wintertime, especially if there are enough activities and amenities to keep everyone engaged throughout the duration of the visit.


• Well-rounded experiences - Resorts offer everything- under-one-roof. It's not just about the content and ses- sions occurring at the meeting, it's about the overall experience, the food, the dining and, most importantly, the activities available during down time.


• Exotic locations that are close to home - With many people migrating to warmer locations for meetings during the winter (and sometimes harsh conditions locally), resorts are often more willing in winter to open up a con- sideration set for planners who want to save time and money by staying close to home, yet still be able to enjoy a meeting in a fun and exciting new location.


• Health and wellness options - Conference atten- dees usually want to try and stay as close to their fitness routine as possible, especially in the winter when there is an uptick in indoor workouts. Health and wellness amenities, such as a gym, salon and swimming pool, can make a difference in booking a resort for a conference.


• Excellent food and beverage - This really applies to any time of year, but resorts tend to offer a wider variety of food and beverage offerings to any sized groups during the winter months. Never underestimate the ability to make a powerful and lasting impression through food and beverage services.
