Here are five reasons why meeting planners choose Rapid City to make a BIG impression with their meetings and conventions attendees!
BIG MEETINGS WITH A SMALL TOWN FEEL
Meeting attendees can own Rapid City in a BIG way! While it's still considered a small town, it is the second largest town in South Dakota. Rapid City offers a similar atmosphere and fun activities found in major metro areas across the country, but with a small town appeal. Groups can enjoy the city and become a meaningful part of the community. Everyone is treated like a local!
GROUPS ENJOY DOWNTOWN RAPID CITY
Downtown Rapid City offers diverse culinary experiences, unique attractions and more all within walking distance. Groups love exploring and taking pictures with the Native American artwork at Prairie Edge Trading Company & Galleries, walking through the colorful art that brings Art Alley to life, along with standing face-to-face with the statues that make-up the City of Presidents.
THE CULTURALLY RICH HISTORY INSPIRES ATTENDEES
What better way to appreciate your nation than visiting the monuments and landmarks that proudly display the history of America? From the awe-inspiring Mount Rushmore to the legendary Native American landmarks like Crazy Horse Memorial and Devils Tower National Monument, Rapid City and the surrounding area is overflowing with bucket-list experiences.
THERE ARE MANY INDUSTRY INTELLIGENCE RESOURCES
The universities in Rapid City are focused on STEM related programs that enrich the economy and lend major accomplishments to booming industries such as biotech, mechanical and chemical engineering, and software technology. Meeting planners love all of the resources available to them for enriching their meetings and conventions with industry specific intelligence.
ACTIVITIES FOR TEAM BUILDING ABOUND
For affordable meetings that help teams bond and grow leadership and communication skills, Rapid City is an excellent choice for meeting planners! Groups can get to know each other while sharing life changing experiences like driving through the Badlands National Park, sharing drinks at one of the local breweries and wineries, or enjoying an afternoon fishing or horseback riding together.
