Frankly, it just doesn’t get a whole lot cooler than that!


Kevin Shanley, corporate sales and revenue management, Kalahari Resorts and Conventions, says that the ability to offer so much fun and excitement coupled with top-notch function space provides an environ- ment that’s far from ordinary, but also one that is welcoming and inviting for families to join in the fun.

"What makes our convention center unique is that your meeting or event becomes a destination vacation for the whole family,” he says, “with the best in entertainment and dining all under one roof... Kalahari Resorts and Conventions in the Poconos is home to America’s Largest Indoor Waterpark, Gorilla Grove Treetop Adventures, The Arena, a virtual reali- ty attraction, a world-class spa, hydro- oasis and more."


Regarding Kalahari’s authentic African theme, the only resort of its kind, Shanley says that guests and meeting attendees will be immediate- ly engaged when they “hear African music sounding throughout the resort, see breathtaking art on the conven- tion center walls, feel genuine textiles in the halls, taste African flavors in our kitchens, and have real African ele- ments in their guest rooms."


All of the resort’s amenities and enter- tainment offerings can be incorporat- ed as desired to create a custom event experience. “Kalahari is very attractive for groups because we have everything you need for a successful event, all under one roof - and we can accommodate groups of any size," he notes.


In 2019, Kalahari’s convention facility will grow to 234,000 total square feet, adding 134,000-square feet to its exist- ing function space. This expansion will feature 21 new meeting rooms (resulting in 39 total). The resort also will add a 38,000-square foot ball-


room and an additional 9,000-square foot junior ballroom (it currently has a 25,000-square foot ballroom and 9,000-square foot junior ballroom).


"Our dining options are top notch and range from upscale steakhouse to buffet,” notes Shanley. “Kalahari recently opened two new signature dining experiences - Double Cut Charcoal Grill with premium cuts of meat, craft cocktails, family style sides and more. This restaurant has a great bar and lounge area, complete with tableside fireplaces. We also opened Sortino’s Italian Kitchen, a new-aged, red-sauced restaurant where old- school Italian cuisine meets the mod- ern age. The menu includes wood- fired pizza, Italian family dining, a large variety of wines and a cannoli dessert bar."


Fun group activities for team bonding and entertainment add to the cool factor here, from the adults-only swim up bar and lounge to the new virtual reality gaming experience, The Arena, ropes courses, laser tag, mini golf, bowling, arcade games and more.


"Today, meeting planners want an unparalleled group experience paired with award-winning amenities and attractions for attendees to enjoy,” asserts Shanley. “The appeal of mixing work and play is only increasing for meeting attendees, and choosing unique destinations meets this demand. When groups select Kalahari Resorts and Conventions as their location, it’s no longer a meeting someone has toattend; it becomes an experience the whole family gets to attend."


Kalahari boasts a wide range of attractive offerings, including: outdoor event venues; meeting space all on one level; dedicated conference serv- ices manager; dedicated convention center loading dock; large grade level access to main exhibit facility; full service business center; exceptional pre-function space; complimentary
