Have Fun while Strengthening Employee Relationships

Soapbox (1)

Teambuilding Exercise, St. Michaels, MDThere has never been a better time to get your employees out of the office. Hosting an off-site meeting has the potential to add great value to a business by inspiring employees and offering them a chance to think outside of the conference room. Destination meetings promote a more engaging environment that fosters teamwork and creates more productive employees.

At Harbourtowne we customize meeting packages to fit you, your business, and your budget. We replace the typical meeting, add to it with teambuilding activities and create a shared experience that extends beyond the meeting room. We boast waterfront venues for outdoor events as well as two meeting rooms that overlook the Bay. Continental breakfast is offered daily as well as lunch and dinner buffets and continuous break service. We also offer a variety of teambuilding vendors with whom we partner with to tailor event activities to meet your specific business needs.

The idea is to provide hands on activities to improve the effectiveness of your team. Destination Paradise is one of our partner vendors who coordinated a soapbox derby build with World Bank here at Harbourtowne. It was interactive and fun for all participants.


Gooseworks Consulting is another partner who offers team and organizational development services. They held a cardboard boat building exercise with another bank group at Harbourtowne. Whatever your unique business needs, leave it to our partners to stage the perfect activities and bring your meetings back to life.

Let us help get your office be inspired! Request Harbourtowne for your next meeting today!
