With the advent of virtual meetings, conference calls, and working remotely from home, it’s important to create opportunities for groups to bond and forge relationships during valuable face to face meetings. When it comes to creating a sense of comradery among colleagues, there’s no substitute for spending time together in a fun, casual environment.
We’ve put together a list of team building activities for your group to experience together when you Meet in Long Beach!
Trivia aboard the Gondola Getaway
No flight to Italy required – Long Beach has its very own Naples in the nearby waterfront neighborhood of Belmont Shore. Traverse the Naples canals aboard a Venetian gondola with your fellow coworkers or Board of Director to relax before the conference kick-off. Exchange ideas and stories with a glass of wine in hand while a gondolier guides you through the calm canal waters, or get competitive with company or industry trivia!
Wheel Fun Rentals in Shoreline Village
Long Beach is home to 5.5 miles of sandy beaches. Take full advantage of our oceanfront location and rent a surrey for up to four passengers from Wheel Fun Rentals in Shoreline Village. Just a short walk from the Convention Center, lies a mini fleet of beach cruisers, tandem bikes, and deuce coupes waiting to embark down the beachfront bike and pedestrian path.
Hydrobikes on Alamitos Bay
Long Beach is known as The Urban Waterfront Playground for good reason – there’s plenty to see and do on the water in our Southern California oasis. Take some time during your meeting and enjoy some fun in the California sun Alamitos Bay!
Scavenger Hunt at the Aquarium of the Pacific
Dive deep into a world of wonders with your fellow conventioneers at the Aquarium of the Pacific. Attendance to the Aquarium is only $9 after 12:00 p.m. to meeting attendees who show their conference badge. Test your knowledge or learn something new about the Pacific Ocean and its inhabitants with a self-lead scavenger hunt! The worksheet can easily be printed from their website.
Lego Challenge at the Queen Mary
Embark on a journey through history aboard the famed luxury ocean-liner, the Queen Mary. Embrace your inner child by visiting the Shipyard for a glimpse at the 25-foot long LEGO model of the passenger ship turned hotel. Let your competitive side run rampant by forming teams and competing in head-to-head contests to see who can create ship models out of the colorful building blocks the fastest!
Tea Time at the Queen Mary
Pinkies up! Test your etiquette with your fellow conventioneers aboard the Queen Mary in their elegant Team Room. The British-inspired experience provides a delicately scrumptious experience!
Standard general admission to the Queen Mary is 50% off exclusively for convention attendees when they show their conference badge.
