Kalahari Resorts and Conventions in the Pocono Mountains Pocono Manor, PA

Scheduled to open in late 2019, Kalahari Resorts and Conventions in the Pocono Mountains will unveil its newly expanded convention center, which will more than double the size of meeting facilities on-site, adding 105,000-square feet to bring its total footprint up to 205,000-square feet once completed.

The project includes a 38,000-square foot ballroom and a 12,000-square foot junior ballroom, which will join the facility’s existing 25,000-square foot and 9,000-square-foot ballrooms. The proj- ect also includes 18 additional meeting rooms, bringing the property’s total up to 33, the expansion of its load-in and load-out capabilities, and the addition of extensive registration and client office spaces. This is the second expan- sion to Kalahari’s Pocono Mountains location since the resort opened in the summer of 2015.

“It’s been challenging and rewarding to help grow the Poconos as a premier destination for group business on the East Coast,” said Travis Nelson, owning family member of Kalahari Resorts and Conventions. “The completion of this expansion will allow the company to meet the current and future projected demands for group rooms in the area.”

The addition at the Pocono Mountains location is the most recent project for Kalahari Resorts and Conventions, as the company continues its rapid

expansion nationwide, including a new resort in Round Rock, TX, and an expansion to the Wisconsin Dells loca- tion’s convention center.

Known for going beyond expectations and delivering first-class service, Kalahari’s modular meeting spaces will feature state-of-the-art amenities like high-def monitors and projectors along with superior lighting and AV controls for colorful and sharp presentations. Guests will have free access to high- speed Wi-Fi with capacity to increase to 10 GB/s or more (with advance order), plus ergonomic chairs designed to keep attendees comfort- able for up to 10 hours. Kalahari also boasts a dedicated and experienced team who can assist planners and pro- vide advice to help them meet their goals and objectives.

The meeting space, guestrooms and leisure activities all will remain under one roof when the expansion is com- pleted, and guests will continue to enjoy complimentary parking, as well as easy access to Spa Kalahari and Salon. Additional offerings at the resort include: fitness studios, various enter- tainment options, and dining experi- ences such as Double Cut, the resort’s signature steakhouse experience, Sortino’s Italian Kitchen, and the new B-Lux Grill and Bar. Of course, admis- sion to America’s Largest Indoor Waterpark is always included with an overnight stay, as well.
