Utah: Naturally Accommodating

By Linda Hayes, Association News

With its magnificent scenery, including five national parks, 14 top-ranking ski resorts and stunning Monument Valley, Utah is rightly known as a natural playground. But the state’s beauty only scratches the surface of all it has to offer for groups. Most visitors need to make return trips to enjoy it all—a certainty that meeting planners can capitalize on.

Scenery might be the key to drawing in attendees but it’s Utah’s top-notch meeting infrastructure that delivers an impressive event. Meeting facilities of all sizes are found throughout the state, and local convention and visitors bureaus are more than willing to set up extra-curricular events to make sure groups hit all the high points.
