About Meeting in Montana

Meeting in Montana can seem a little intimidating to some meeting planners who have never been to the Treasure State. Montana does fall into that relatively unknown destination category for meetings and conventions. What makes it such a special place to meet is that it takes attendees out of the hustle and bustle of their urban setting and gives them a respite in a mountain setting with an abundance of outdoor activities just waiting to be incorporated into their meeting agenda. We all know no matter how much time is spent on getting the best speakers and having the most comprehensive agenda, attendees who have options to attend an association or corporate event often look at the destination as a hook to get them there. How many times have you looked at attending a meeting and thought—now that destination sounds intriguing? We've met with many meeting professionals over the past decade, and here are some of the most common responses we get when Western Montana is brought up as an option for their meeting or conference. Do you relate to any of these? Find the questions and answers here.
