Meetings that Mean Something More
Benchmark’s motto Living, Learning and Leisure™ is derived from our philosophy that a hard day’s work deserves a healthy dose of relaxation and luxury. Meet with us to foster camaraderie, the exchange and exploration of ideas, problem solving, and growth, but also to savor the experience of life and rejuvenate the mind.
The Value of Experiential Group Activities
You have an annual meeting in which you aspire to connect team members working opposite ends of the country. Does that connection happen inside a hotel at the mandatory meeting portion of your program, or is it more likely off-site, where team members embark on adventures together, like hiking, ziplining, and even axe throwing? At Skamania Lodge, you don’t have to go anywhere – it all happens on-site.
