Meetings at The Vanderbilt
Elevate your next meeting
“I knew going on a lobster fishing trip would be a fun addition to our team’s retreat. I didn’t realize learning how to prepare our catch together would yield a breakthrough in how we communicate.” This kind of executive feedback is gratifying yet comes as no surprise to us at The Vanderbilt. We understand how a change in perspective inspires big-picture thinking and bonding. We see the added value in arranging custom activities including mixology lessons, sailing lessons, classic car excursions, and the latest trend in corporate wellness programs. When it’s time for more formal brainstorms and presentations, our conference spaces provide the latest audio-visual capabilities along with a sense of relaxed luxury and refinement.
