Favorite Florida Meeting Destination Provides Convenient Solutions for Meeting Planners
Destin, FL (June 21, 2011) – Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort today announced eight new ways for meeting planners to turn work into productive fun for groups of all sizes and interest, with its new Team Building Activities (TBA).
According to lead planners, it is important for meeting attendees to spend quality time together and learn how to more effectively work together. The skills and relationships that people obtain while in a relaxed setting can transfer into a work environment, improving communications and long term productivity. Planners and attendees alike are able to return home from Sandestin with a refreshed sense of connection.
Because of its expansive property, activities and options from the Beach to the Bay, Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort provides a long list of new Team Building Activities (TBA) that can be customized for any group.
Fun Activities that Make Meetings Go from Blah to Ha-ha!
Among the eight customizable Team-Building Activities include:
- The Baytowne Adventure Challenge which encourages attendees to brave the most unique modified triathlon in the Southeast with a three-story ropes course, YOLO boarding and a scenic zipline just to name a few
- The Wine Education Seminar that emphasizes learning about wine through tasting in an informal and fun venue setting
- Golf which has a variety of options with The H.O.R.S.E. Race, The Executive Golf and The Night Golf – all perfect for golfers of all skill levels from beginner to pro.

- Many more team-building options with plenty of laughter and teambuilding to go around.
