Meeting attendees will long remember what got them up, moving and building team.
Give them something unexpected at your next event, and try vendors who come directly into your meeting space. From ice cream making and cooking classes to art and dancing, Arlington area businesses can give your meeting local flavor with lots of interactivity.
Want to unleash your inner artist? ArtJamz can provide everything you need for an arty group event. They bring paints, art materials, easel, smocks, canvas and artistic guidance. They can create an upbeat social art studio setting that brings out the creative genius for 15 or more people.
Kingsbury Chocolates & Confections will come to you for a sweet team building activity. With private classes in truffle-making and chocolate tasting, you can demystify how to make ganache and temper chocolate. Taste a variety of chocolates and confections while learning about the history of cocoa. You can also try “wine and chocolate pairing.”
Serve their sweet tooth more with Nicecream, ice cream that’s flash frozen before your eyes. Watching the amazing process is sure to hold attention.
Or ask some of Arlington’s food trucks to stop by your event, such as Pho-Bachi, serving pho noodles, or Basic Burger, D.C. Pollo, Happy Grill, Leaf Pa Tacos and Loopy’s Eatery to name a few.
Then get everyone moving with a dance workshop. Saffron Dance, for example, teaches Intro to Belly Dance and performs at events including private corporate functions, conferences and cultural events.
Bring fun and excitement to your next meeting or event! Arlington also has plenty of magicians, comedians, musicians and motivational speakers. You can ask our team to help you with on-site hospitality services to ensure your meeting is a complete success.
