• Meetings Go High-Tech and Global at AT&T Hotel and Conference Center

     
    FROM THE Winter 2018 ISSUE
     

    Technology High in Austin

Located on the edge of the University of Texas at Austin campus, just minutes from downtown Austin, The AT&T Hotel and Conference Center now offers personalized iPads in each guest room, allowing guests to do everything from order room service to explore the city of Austin, all with the touch of a finger. And the tech doesn’t stop there.

The AT&T Hotel and Conference Center meeting rooms are equipped with high-definition laser projectors, high-speed bandwidth (300mb up and 300mb down), wired and wireless internet connectivity, ethernet data ports and built-in audio-visual capabilities. The venue’s 300-seat amphitheater has a 12-panel ultra-clear digital multimedia wall with screen segmentation, picture-in-picture and other video capabilities. The Center also has a stateof-the-art telepresence technology that enables conference or meeting participants to collaborate face to face, nationally or globally, with up to 48 locations. Now that’s a meeting planner’s paradise. 

In 2021, the focus is on wellness. In Texas, there’s a spa for that.

The last two years have been, to put it mildly, challenging. Showing your team some appreciation for a job well done with a little spa pampering will allow them to relax and regroup together. Whether you’re looking to make a day, weekend or week of it, Texas has a spa retreat to suit your needs. 

Make a Week of It

 

Temperatures are starting to dip in Seattle, but if you want to get in one last outdoor gathering before winter, consider The Rooftop at WeWork Cap Hill. Located on the penthouse level on 11th Avenue near Seattle’s storied Pine and Pike Streets, the space offers inviting landscapes and spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. Capacity: 74.  Bring sweaters and scarves!

 

Four reasons to spend time on one of Texas’ resort golf courses.
