The Woodlands Resort, Curio Collection by Hilton has introduced new teambuilding activities for groups gathering at the resort. The experiences focus on wellness and recreation.

The new experiences include:

Goat yoga. Get ready to have a four-legged “instructor” nudge you as you go into the downward dog during a 45-minute ashtanga practice for beginners. Traditional yoga is also available along the lakefront, with an interior space available in case of inclement weather. Both varieties require a 15-person minimum. “It was great for our group to move their bodies. We sat in a conference room all day, so people appreciated getting a workout in,” said Hollyn Crubaugh, Team Effectiveness Manager for Nico Corporation. “We had a lot of people that didn’t know each other or hadn’t been together in person, so goat yoga was a fun way to get to become better acquainted with one another.” 

Pickleball. A little friendly competition on the pickleball court is available with pre-play instruction from a certified pickleball instructor. The Woodlands Resort has a dozen courts—with indoor or outdoor options. 

Chef Competitions. Meeting guests at the resort can channel their inner culinary genius through a variety of packaged cooking challenges—from team gourmet pizza building to cocktail challenges. 

Located approximately 30 miles north of Houston, the 402-room resort offers 75,000 square feet of meeting and event space along with an array of amenities, including two on-site championship golf courses, a tennis center, a spa, kayaks, and a waterpark with a 1,005-foot lazy river and 30-foot double helix waterslide.

The Houston Marriott Medical Center/Museum District announced the completion of its multimillion-dollar renovation. Located in the city’s Museum District, the 398-room hotel refreshed its interiors and added new amenities. 

 

South by Southwest (SXSW) returned live this year! The 35-year-old festival infuses on average $16-plus million of consumer spending into the Austin music scene over the course of nine days. The festival returned in March after its cancellation in 2020 and virtual show in 2021. Both the cancellation and virtual show were prompted by health and safety concerns due to the pandemic.
