If you are looking for an inspired and productive meeting venue, it helps to start with an equally inspiring location. From conventions and seminars to weddings, trade shows, family reunions, and retreats, Bend offers meeting planners a thoughtful mix of tools for both business and pleasure. It's a proven fact that PowerPoint presentations are easier to digest when one has a moonlit canoe adventure to look forward to. Sales meetings are more motivational when your team is surrounded by the majestic peaks of the Cascade Mountains. And team-building is more cohesive when experienced in the awe-inspiring beauty of Central Oregon.
In Bend, our expansive mix of meeting facilities, a state-of-the-art convention center, 3,000 hotel rooms, convenient access, abundance of restaurants and unparalleled outdoor recreation provide the perfect recipe for the perfect meeting.
Of course, Bend is best known for amazing scenery and outdoor pursuits, so why not take advantage? If it's a wedding you're planning, consider making it an outdoor affair. Imagine tying the knot with blazing orange basalt rock in the distance at Smith Rock State Park, or a grassy green lawn beside a stream at Shevlin Park.
Whether you're hosting a large sales convention or a small family reunion, be sure to save time for savoring Bend's wealth of fun activities. Schedule a casual meeting on the green at one of 25 local golf courses, or plan a pampered outing with the girls at a luxurious day spa. Need to do a little team-building? Many guided tour companies offer customized outdoor adventures for groups of all sizes. The possibilities are as endless as the sunshine in Bend!
