Breathe new life into your annual gatherings

STEP OUTSIDE THE EXPECTED.
Planning an annual meeting poses its own unique challenges. How do you breathe new life into an event that’s held every year? When it came time for Chris Hall, LCSW/lead clinician at the Dean Clinic of Sun Prairie’s Psychiatry Department, to organize its annual conference, she wanted to find a venue that would re-energize and inspire attendees. “Monona Terrace offers an absolutely inspiring atmosphere in a naturally attractive setting,” she says. “It added something unexpected to an event we hold every year.”
Switching up your venue choice can add to the success of your event. “From the beautiful food arrangements to the venue’s unique location, our attendees really enjoyed their time here,” says Hall. “In fact, 92 percent of participants gave Monona Terrace a top score in post-event surveys.”
Add spark to your annual events by re-imagining what your meetings could look like:
- Find a venue that offers inspiring views to give attendees a fresh perspective.
- Look for a location that offers a range of meeting areas—from more intimate spaces for working closely together to spacious meeting rooms that create a more energetic environment.
- Find out about what unexpected “details that delight,” such as food arrangement and choices, a venue can offer to add something special to the day.
Infusing renewed energy into your annual meetings doesn’t necessarily mean you need to relocate to a different venue. If your event’s location is versatile enough, it’s simply a matter of taking advantage of these unused opportunities. Monona Terrace makes every meeting special. From the variety of meeting spaces to the cooked-to-order options that the versatile catering department provides, a reinvigorated gathering is just around the corner.
