There are many ways to bring a team together, but few that offer the beauty of birdwatching. Beaumont, in particular, is a popular area for groups to go birdwatching and the Beaumont CVB can expertly line-up options. Victor Emanuel Nature Tours (VENT), for example, is a 40-year-old company based in Austin that operates more than 150 birding and natural history tours in Beaumont and other Texas locations, as well as all over the world. More than 350 bird species are spotted in and around Beaumont each year, many of them by corporate groups on team-building outings. “This area is among my favorite birding areas,” says Victor Emanuel, president. “Few other regions in the country offer such splendid birding opportunities.” Sounds like a novel way to get teams to flock together.
Event professionals are constantly thinking about how to best stimulate our guests’ senses in order to create the most memorable experience and greatest impact, whether it’s a wedding, corporate meeting or event, fundraiser or social gathering. Many people focus on only three of the five senses: taste, sight and sound. Rarely do planners pay attention to touch or smell. Strategically paying attention to scent and how it interacts with other sensory experiences can greatly impact the overall quality of an event.
