Top 5 business destinations
There’s nothing like a business trip, especially when your company is paying. You’re usually flown business class to a city in another state or country, put up by your company in a fancy hotel and treated to delicious meals, all in exchange for a few hours of business. Still, there are ways to make that typical business trip even better. Sure, a quick trip to Denver or Silicon Valley can be great, but why not take a quick sojourn to the Caribbean, budget allowing? Check out these five great destinations for sealing business deals for some more ideas!
Nassau, The Bahamas
One great thing about the Bahamas is that this small island nation is right next to the United States, reducing the chance that your boss will object to your junket to this foreign country. Many Nassau hotels are just a minute’s walk from the beach, meaning that once you have finished with your business dealings, you can take a leisurely stroll down to the sand and relax. Flights to Nassau aren’t too expensive, and many hotels feature business centers.
Here’s another one of those small island territories located just off the United States coast. Bermuda, known for its famed Bermuda Triangle, is a small overseas territory of the United Kingdom located southeast of North Carolina. Many hotels in Bermuda feature business centers, and Bermuda comes with the added bonus of being a center of business itself â€“ the small territory has one of the highest GDP per capita rates in the world owing to its booming finance sector.
U.S. Virgin Islands
If your company will pay for you to go anywhere inside the United States, suggest the U.S. Virgin Islands as a possibility. Although a territory of the United States, the U.S. Virgin Islands (not to be confused with their British counterpart, the British Virgin Islands) are actually east of Puerto Rico, not anywhere near the mainland. The islands are known for their beautiful beaches, so this is another great destination to keep in mind!
Not a fan of the hot summer temperatures of the continental United States? Canada may be a great option! Companies often do not see trips to Canada as junkets (like those to the Caribbean often are) because there are no internationally renowned beaches there. Although there are beaches in Canada, ski resorts are far more plentiful. If it’s not too warm, head to western Canada to experience what 2010 Winter Olympics competitors experienced fantastic facilities for snow sports!
Who ever said that you had to leave the United States to go on an enjoyable business trip? Several hotels with business centers operate here, meaning that it will never be difficult to find a location to conduct business negotiations. In addition, Miami features some of the United States best beaches, making it easy to enjoy the sun while conducting business in your spare time.
As you can see, several locations across North America are perfect for conducting business. Keep these destinations in mind for the next time you go on a business trip!
