A Fresh Take On Meetings
Mindful activities in inspiring settings
When groups gather together to meet on the shores of the lake, the sunlit meeting rooms, vast outdoor spaces surrounded by lush greenery, and quiet waters of Lake Geneva create a unique opportunity to be inspired, relaxed, and fully present in the moment. In this setting, keeping the safety of our guests at the forefront, The Abbey Resort has designed new meeting concepts to provide a balance between delivering purposeful events while promoting personal growth and improved well-being for your attendees.
Open Meeting Environment
Whether you meet in our 40,000 square feet of naturally-lit indoor meeting space or in the open air of our 90 acres of outdoor property, our meeting locations can be set to create optimal space, maintaining healthy and hygienic practices, while inspiring new solutions and creating shared positive memories:
- Safe social distancing spacing in meeting sets - both traditional and relaxed
- Hand sanitizing stations at entrances to meeting room
- Air purification systems, infusers and aromatherapies
- Continuous breaks with grab-and-go packaging and staggered event entry / exit timing
Enriching Culinary Experiences
Our Chef works with local growers and producers to bring fresh, wholesome ingredients to your table. You will find a connection to the land, the history, and the lake in our menus as well as a reconnection to what it means to break bread with others.
- Locally-sourced, sustainable menu selections
- Healthy, energy-promoting foods for meals and breaks
- Intensified awareness on product sourcing and preparation
- Packaging and tableware that promote a sanitary environment
To fuel greater energy and engagement, we have developed new programming - both active and relaxing - to complement our coffee break food and beverage offerings. Focus inward or get to know your teammates with these new activities.
- Guided wellbeing exercises including meditation, yoga and stress relieving breathing rituals for groups of any size.
- Brain teasers and games to promote networking and problem solving.
- Movement and stretching activities to get the blood flowing and revitalize the group.
Enriching teambuilding activities inspired by the lake, the nature around us, and the local experiences we have to offer have been created to enrich the mind, body and spirit of each attendee. Programs are built to focus on giving back to the community or on improving your self.
- Get out and play in the fresh air with games for teams and solo participants.
- Come together to give back to the community whether building bikes for area children, cleaning the shoreline, or working with youth groups.
- Activities that slow down the tempo and teach new skills promoting relaxation and focus.
