Meet + Greet: BusinessQ’s Convention and Meeting Guide

We miss meetings! As soon as it’s safe to meet in larger groups, here are eight industry experts ready to host and help at your next office away from the office.

MEET River Bottoms Ranch

“Design your event to create connection. Your team will work together better in the long run if they feel bonded to each other. One fail-proof way to create connection is engaging in new experiences together. At River Bottoms Ranch, we offer activities such as fly fishing, cross country skiing and horseback riding to get your team out of the office and into adventure. It’s time to take the stuffy out of corporate events.” -Janica Horner, owner and director, River Bottoms Ranch


This family-owned property offers a modern and sophisticated alternative to closed-in conference rooms. Located in the picturesque Utah mountain valley of Midway, River Bottoms Ranch regularly hosts moments of connection including corporate events, retreats, workshops, holiday gatherings and wedding celebrations. Guests enjoy the timeless architectural details of a large adaptable space and the opportunity to travel away from the office, allowing you to customize an event to meet the needs of your group. The property offers a list of amenities including custom-made farm house tables, solid wood cross back chairs and a rustic whiskey barrel bar. Redefine and create genuine connections through unique outdoor experiences such as fly fishing on private waters, ATV riding, hot air ballooning and snowmobiling.

MEET Wadley Farms

“When hosting an event, the location always matters. Choose a venue that will help your guests escape from their every day so they can focus on the matters at hand, like team building, networking, brainstorming or innovating. We know business can be hectic, so when creating and maintaining the spaces at Wadley Farms, we endeavor to surround our future guests with beauty and serenity.” -Susie Webb, coordinator, Wadley Farms


Nestled in the hills of Lindon, this multi-space venue can accommodate corporate meetings, dinner events, team building retreats and more. Rental of the Castle, the Barn, and the Railroad Building all include indoor and outdoor options depending on the time of year, weather, and needs of the event. Plus, Wadley Farms is infused with history. This event venue was established in 1869 as a family-run vineyard and farm and is still farmed and operated by the fifth and sixth generations of the Wadley family. Tours are available by appointment.

MEET Provo Beach

“Positive social interaction should be a major focus for anyone planning a group event. Play facilitates this interaction by breaking down walls and promoting authenticity. Authenticity, in turn, helps people feel connected to those around them, which leads to improved employee morale and increased loyalty.” -Christian Brinton, Provo Beach


Provo Beach is Utah’s premier community entertainment center with more than 50,000 square feet of fun, food and attractions. Provo Beach takes the pain out of party planning and turns party planners into party heroes. Provo Beach would love to make your event fantastic. Email or call (801) 224-5002 to set up a time to meet with event planners and see how they can help.

MEET Thanksgiving Point

“Don’t just host an event. Make it a memory. Whether it’s bistro lights twinkling in the venue or a customized menu celebrating your corporate holiday, your vision will come to life with Thanksgiving Point’s creative planning team.” -Kent Wilcox, Director of Food and Beverage, Thanksgiving Point


For 25 years, Thanksgiving Point has been connecting guests with occasions. With five unique venues and an array of thoughtfully designed spaces, Thanksgiving Point gives your group the perfect location to enjoy the experience of a lifetime.

MEET Wilkinsons Trophy

“When helping companies decide what type of items or gifts to give out for a convention, we ask them first to consider their audience or who they will be giving them to. It might not make sense to give out kitchen items at a tech-oriented event. Our goal is to help your gifts, swag and awards create an unforgettable experience.” -Aaron Wilkinson, owner, Wilkinsons Trophy


Convention swag always gives an event a little something extra. Wilkinsons Trophy helps customize your event with awards and promotional items. And because they’ve been in business since 1978, the experts at Wilkinsons Trophy know how to brand an event professionally and seamlessly — from name badges and medals to signage and T-shirts.

MEET Utah Valley Convention Center

“When looking for event space, ask how booking your event on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday, versus a Thursday, Friday or Saturday could save you money. Quite often you can get a better deal earlier in the week. The same concept can be applied for low-demand months.” -Suzanne Stratton, Director of Sales &
Marketing, Utah Valley Convention Center


This state-of-the-art facility is designed to host an array of events, including meetings, conventions, banquets, and special events. Elegant architecture and beautiful mountain views provide a warm, professional atmosphere unique to convention meeting spaces while complimentary Wi-Fi and the building’s vertical layout increase event efficiency.

MEET Fox Hollow Golf Course

“These days, with all the various forms of communication, we rarely speak face-to-face with clients and business associates. While technology makes for efficient communication, it takes away from the relationships that can be formed when we talk person-to-person.” -Rick Roberts, head golf pro at Fox Hollow Golf Course




For 26 years, Fox Hollow Golf Course has been connecting businesses through the joy of a nice round of golf. Fox Hollow is located in the heart of north Utah Valley and is perfect for a stroll around the links, a burger in the clubhouse or a more formal meeting in its hosting space.
