ARIZONA

Adventure-seekers, you best hold onto your hats. Between the hot air balloon rides, horseback riding excursions, and laps around the track in rented Lamborghinis, there are more unique venue selections in Phoenix for memorable corporate events than you can shake a stick at. Canyon Creek Ranch, just outside Phoenix, is a perfect daytime activity for teambuilding fun with authentic cowboy games – roping and skeet shooting – and later, cooling off at the old-timey saloon. Maybe horses aren’t your speed and choosing from a stable of luxury racecars at Racing Adventures is the special event for you. Maybe the desert is calling, maybe an unforgettable dinner under the stars, in the shadow of saguaros, at Phoenix’s Desert Botanical Garden. Whatever your entertainment, catering and décor needs, Phoenix offers state of the art convention services, corporate event spaces and transportation.

Beyond Phoenix, the sightseeing tours appear as endless as the desert itself. In Tucson, Saguaro National Park is a photographer’s dream. In Sedona, a hike up to iconic Cathedral Rock offers unbelievable views of the area’s unique terrain, as does a drive through Red Rock Scenic Byway. And then, of course, The Grand Canyon, just sitting there waiting to take your breath away.

Arizona isn’t just for adventure seekers though. This contemporary metropolitan city has merged a variety of cultural influences creating a distinct lifestyle. With a modern convention center, airline hubs and convenient luxury transportation, Phoenix supplies easy access to the vast metro area and the state’s diverse offerings.

Top places to eat

Z’ Tejas

The ever popular 6th Street Margarita, “Z”tini and Chambord Margaritas at Happy Hour!

Four Peaks Brewery

Arguably the best local brewery in Arizona! Peach Ale is light and refreshing and Pumpkin Porter is a seasonal favorite! Fun, bustling atmosphere during happy hour, but half-off beers make it worth-the-wait.

Postino

Three Words. Hip. Happening. Bruschetta (Okay four – Yum).

El Chorro

Stick. Y. Buns. That’s right, put ‘em all together and you have the most divine treat known to mankind. Sit on the patio with views of Camelback Mountain at sunset and enjoy a taste of heaven.

Culinary Drop Out

Try the pretzel buns, they are to die for!

The Arrogant Butcher

The pretzel bites with beer cheese are a MUST!

Mastro’s City Hall

The “Seafood Tower” appetizer can’t be missed – fresh fish stunningly arranged and presented on a dry ice fog induced platter.

Sol Mexican Cocina

Nachos Dulces are worth every calorie!

The Vig

Vigitude – that unique Vig hipness factor that will have you challenging strangers to a fun game on the Bocce Ball Court over an icy cold beverage.

The Parlor Pizzeria

Once an old school barber shop and beauty parlor, now some of the BEST Pizza in Phoenix!

Café Poca Cosa, Tuscon

A little bit of suspense with dinner! The Chef’s Plate surprises you with 3 different menu items for sharing and tasting.

Wildflower, Tuscon

The food, the drinks, the décor, and even the bathrooms are gorgeous here! With a seasonal menu, you can continuously try new items and fall in love all over again.

The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess

Fireworks in the summer and ice skating in the winter – what more could you ask for?

Find tranquility in the Kasbah Pool & Lounge. Feel the gentle breeze on your warm skin as you float along, sipping a fresh cocktail among the shadows of Camelback Mountain.

Go-to spot for relaxation! We love the proximity to shopping and restaurants…followed by a trip down the lazy river with a frozen vodka lemonade.

Hotel Valley Ho

This mid-century motel is a totally modernized contemporary and hip property with a great pool and classy spa. Grab some beach cruisers and ride around Old Town or hit up the hotel’s rooftop patio for amazing Arizona sunsets.
