When you’ve got that crucial client meeting on the horizon, the number one priority is winning them over and convincing them they made the right choice in selecting your services.
And while your personality, charm and business ideas will go a long way to impressing them, there’s no doubt that the location of your rendezvous can play a huge role in the enjoyment of their experience and ensure the meeting sticks out in their mind.
But which city to choose? Chances are you’ll have to take to the air to reach your desired destination, and private jet flights are a great way to treat your clients and ensure you arrive at one of these 5 cities in style.
Where better to meet than a city focused on entertainment, fun and excitement? There are dozens of hotels and resorts for you to choose from, while the Las Vegas Convention Center provides 250,000 square feet of meeting space.
And once your meeting is over, there are certainly no shortage of attractions for you and your clients to take in – whether that be trying your luck in one of the many casinos or taking in a show, you can be sure that all tastes will be catered for.
If you’re seeking to combine business with pleasure, Orlando could be just the place for you. Its raft of hotel rooms at perfectly affordable prices make it a cost-efficient destination, while the Orange County Convention Center’s meeting space of almost 500,000 square feet makes it an ideal location.
And let’s not forget, once the business side of your trip is done and dusted, the likes of SeaWorld, Universal Studios and several other theme parks are right on your doorstep when it comes to letting your hair down.
If the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas or the theme parks of Orlando are not what you’re after, the Windy City could be the perfect solution. McCormick Place offers 170 meeting rooms totalling 600,000 square feet of space – just one of many impressive convention centers in Chicago.
Once the business matters have been concluded there are plenty of options when it comes to entertaining your clients, perhaps in the form of taking in some jazz at the Green Mill cocktail lounge or embarking on a boat ride out on Lake Michigan.
Everything is bigger and better in Texas, and a trip to Dallas could really wow your clients. There are more than 30,000 hotel rooms in the city, which attracts almost 25 million visitors per year, so you can be safe in the knowledge that you and your clients will be well looked after.
If shopping is the way you like to unwind after a full day of meetings, then Highland Park Village could be the ideal solution. Or if food and drink is more your thing, you could visit the highly rated Dallas Fish Market before heading onto Citizen – a versatile bar that offers something for everyone.
The City That Never Sleeps, The Big Apple, The City So Nice They Named It Twice. Whatever you decide to call New York, there’s no doubting its ability to bowl over any visitor, and your clients cannot fail to be impressed by all it has to offer, including the superb Javits Center, which generates more than $2 billion a year and would be the perfect spot for your rendezvous.
Of course, the city is certainly not short on other things to do, and you could further excite your clients by taking in the stunning views atop the Rockerfeller Center or Empire State Building, catching a Broadway show or even visiting one of the classy speakeasy bars in the Chelsea District.
