Corporate Retreats at French Lick Resort

We’ve all been there: A weekend or a few days in a remote location that brought us closer together with people we hardly knew before we arrived. It might be a friend’s wedding, a work conference or a reunion. There’s just something about gathering at a rural resort far from urban distractions. From a business perspective, the networking is better, sessions yield more e cient outcomes and corporate culture receives a boost.

French Lick Resort provides a prime example of these virtues when you’re planning a conference, event or meeting on-site. Our business and meeting facilities are state-of-the-art and ever-growing, offering groups everything from bucolic receptions to a roster full
of team-building activities. When they partake in a golf scramble tournament or a culinary challenge followed by a terrace cocktail party, employees and executives alike revel in shared times and collective bonding.

“Our board of directors meeting is very important and our June meeting also includes the past presidents and wives of the group,” said Kim Rominger from the Ohio- based United Equipment Dealers Association. “There was just so much to do for everyone involved. It is hospitality at its finest and just as it should be.”

Perhaps the best part about meeting at French Lick Resort? You can get away—quite literally.

That’s partly why Pratt Recycling trekked to French Lick Resort for its annual divisional meeting. While French Lick rests a little off the beaten path, that was an alluring quality that sold the Atlanta-based company about sojourning to southern Indiana for a couple days.

“That’s why we love it. Because we’re city people,” said Sherette Williams, Executive Assistant to the President at Pratt.

Williams got a kick out of seeing some of her buttoned-up, urbanite co-workers in a totally new element. They followed a day full of meetings by donning cowboy hats and bandanas and hopping aboard a hayride to head up to The Stables for an evening of dinner, drinks and a Wild West Challenge including archery, lasso and cornhole competitions. That’s the essence of what French Lick Resort provides: sophistication of meeting space plus amenities and activities to blend work with play.

“Today we did Stables and Wild West Challenge. Tomorrow we rented out bowling alley, pizzeria, the bar and the arcade,” Williams said. “Tomorrow afternoon, everybody can do shooting clays, Donald Ross Course, horseback riding or spa. Everybody’s gets to go their own separate ways for four hours tomorrow.

“I’m loving It,” Williams added. “Just the whole feeling of it is awesome.”

Whether it’s a group of 20 or 2,000, we help cover every detail with 160,000 square feet of customizable meeting space plus on-site A/V, culinary and floral staffs. And with world-class spas, golf courses and casino, this is a destination with something for everyone. Explore for yourself and become a planning hero by booking your next event at French Lick Resort.
