More Team building Plus Etc

Part of my job… to give you (as in the meeting/event planner) ideas about things you can use. I try to put them in to categories, but sometimes they all just overlap. So here is a “conglomeration” that I hope you can use. :)

Hey, wait a second, how did this 496-room Scottsdale resort with 50k square feet of meeting space 36-holes of golf, a 90k sq. ft. casino, six restaurants, 3 pools and a Las Vegas style showroom appear in a team building blog?
