Vacation Rentals - The New Meeting Place
By Nigel G. Worrall
You’ve finally saved up the money to take that dream family vacation – the one you hope you and your kids will remember for a lifetime. You’ve chosen a destination and researched all the activities in the area. You’ve asked the boss for the time off. Now all you need is a place to stay.
A new trend is appearing that is taking the meeting place of the small and big business world to new levels. CEO’s, Presidents and top level managers are now beginning to see the advantages of hiring a vacation rental property to host meetings.
Of course, the biggest attraction in this day and age is the ability to save a lot of money over more traditional meetings at hotels where not only do you need to hire a meeting room but you also have to pay for several guest rooms to house staff on overnight stays. It can be quite an expensive proposition.
A vacation rental often has two, three, four or even more bedrooms and this means that the cost of housing those who attend a meeting is significantly lower and of course, hiring a meeting room is totally unnecessary as the vacation rental has ample room to spread out, formally or informally.
Business people are also seeing the huge benefits of keeping everyone in the same place and not spread out over the campus of a large hotel. A good team spirit is a critical factor in the business world today and creating that winning team is a difficult task that can take a long time if it’s not managed correctly. A vacation rental truly helps foster the right spirit as everyone gets to work and play together and that means it is much easier to keep everyone focused on the business goal.
Vacation rentals also score very highly when it comes to meals. Large bills are often run up everyday in the business world by entertaining clients and hosting staff meetings but a vacation rental offers both the chance to save money and a unique setting to do business. Most vacation rentals have a fully equipped kitchen so you can prepare snacks and meals as and when you want, just like you would in the office or at home. Some vacation rental companies even have professional chefs available to pamper your guests and your staff but more often than not, there is usually someone who likes to show off their culinary skills by cooking a delicious meal for everyone and this can be a surefire winner when it comes to creating partnerships and profitable relationships for the future.
Another great attraction about a vacation rental is that very often they will have two or more areas where you can meet. Focus groups are easy to set up as most rentals have a formal area and an informal area and nothing beats a poolside lunch or a dinner with a great view such as in the mountains to get that important business matter finalized.
Very often business people have reported their best results after their colleagues and business partners have relaxed a little at the vacation rental. Taking a swim, a walk on the beach or playing board games together very often gets people in a better frame of mind to make better business decisions and keeps them feeling fresh to make the next big decision.
Hiring a vacation rental for your next meeting just makes good business sense, so maybe it’s time for you to find out what a vacation rental can do for you and your business?
