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.
