Why Meeting at a Theme Park Can Boost Productivity

A Sponsored Message from Universal Orlando


Universal Orlando Resort is a truly unique destination with an unmatched ability to engage, inspire and entertain.

If you think hosting a business event at a theme park will be distracting for attendees, think again. Doing business in a dynamic, stimulating environment where people can let their guard down can actually increase engagement—not mention create connections that foster productivity, build team rapport and improve job satisfaction. Here’s how Universal Orlando Resort makes meeting magic happen.

Environments That Spark Inspiration

Universal Orlando’s four meeting hotels are immersive destinations designed to help attendees relax and get down to business. And the built-in themes at each property—from the Italian-inspired Loews Portofino Bay Hotel to the South Pacific-themed Loews Royal Pacific Resort—make running away from the realities of the 9-to-5 grind and focusing on the work at hand even easier. Who could resist, for example, a morning strategy session at a harborside outdoor café, or a networking event around the glistening Villa Pool? Have another destination or theme in mind? Consider the Caribbean-inspired Loews Sapphire Falls Resort or the rock ‘n roll spirit that pulses through the Hard Rock Hotel.

Universal Orlando’s trio of theme parks offers even more unique and immersive options for planners. Whisk your attendees away from the everyday to an out-of-this-world event amongst the movie sets, rides and shows at Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Universal’s Volcano Bay. End the day at Universal CityWalk, a dining and entertainment complex designed for after-dark events ranging from intimate private dining experiences to rousing block parties.

Meetings Made Unforgettable

No matter where your event schedule takes you within the Resort, the Meeting Enhancements options available to planners courtesy of Universal Orlando’s on-site hotels, ensure attendees stay engaged from start to finish. Invite some of Universal’s most recognizable characters (or create a custom character based on your brand or business focus) to open a meeting, introduce a speaker or interact with your attendees post-event. Or make room for entertainment in the form of musical performers or stilt walkers. These high-energy options plus the technical production support available (lighting, audio, video, staging, effects), guarantee your event will leave a lasting impact.

Family Matters

Let’s face facts: You accomplish more at work when you know your family is well taken care of and happy. So, encourage your attendees to bring their families along for all (or part) of this epic adventure at Universal Orlando. They’ll not only thank you for helping introduce their kids to a few of their favorite characters—they’ll be able to better focus on the work that brought them here.

Mix business with pleasure for highly productive results when you book a meeting at Universal Orlando Resort.
