Soon the scenery around Seven Springs Mountain Resort will be ablaze with fall foliage providing the perfect backdrop for a teambuilding event at the resort. Seven Springs is about an hour southeast of Pittsburgh and offers a peaceful mountain setting for meetings and teambuilding opportunities, which are great for staff, classmates or friends of all courage levels.
 
 “A lot of times traditional teambuilding things tend to separate people,” said John Hess, director of sales. However, the outdoor challenge course at Seven Springs is close to the ground and designed to produce good group dynamics, not fear.
 
Team building encompasses experiential and adventure learning by encouraging individuals to work cooperatively, challenge themselves in a supportive environment, improve self-esteem and learn creative approaches to problem-solving. Groups participate in games, travel through obstacle stations and decide ways to solve proposed challenges together.  “Everybody has to work together,” Hess emphasized.
 
In contrast, the resort’s Alpine Tower is a physical climbing challenge for those not afraid of heights. Groups may choose one of the other resort activities including culinary activities, indoor bowling, mini golf or one of resort’s two extensive zipline courses for further teambuilding. 
 
“Most of the groups we’ve done teambuilding with come back multiple times,” Hess said.
 
For the more formal side of gatherings, the resort offers a wide variety of meeting and banquet spaces including 18 meeting rooms with a total of 60,000 square feet of meeting space. Other available amenities include state-of-the-art audio visual equipment and catering menus designed to meet all budgets.

The City of Bryan has announced that Jamie Cox will be the general manager of the Legends Event Center, a 122,300-square-foot indoor event facility scheduled to open in late 2022. Most recently, Cox served as general manager of the Publix Sports Park in Panama City Beach, Florida. 

 

Omni PGA Frisco Resort, scheduled to open in spring 2023, is now open for group booking requests. 

Located in Frisco, 30 miles north of Dallas, the 500-room resort will feature more than 127,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event spaces, including a 22,000-square-foot grand ballroom, an 11,500-square-foot junior ballroom and a 5,000-square-foot event pavilion.

 

Moody Center, a multi-purpose venue located in downtown Austin, opened its doors this past April. The sold-out grand opening show was a Texas-sized celebration featuring artist George Strait with special guests Willie Nelson & Family and Randy Rogers Band.
