Meetings & Events – Music to Inspire

Posted on: June 25th, 2014 by admin


In my last blog, I talked about a resort working together to create beautiful music. Music has such an important impact in our lives. A sad song reminds us of someone we lost, a happy song reminds us of a celebration, and a love song reminds us of someone important in our lives.

How is music important when planning a meeting or event? The right music can set the tone to enhance your theme. Working on a sales rally, chose upbeat high tempo songs to play during breaks. To encourage learning, play classical music to allow concentration. To add drama or flair to a presentation or announcement, find music that builds to a crescendo. For receptions, add calming music to put people at ease, which will allow for more conversations and networking. Bring in live entertainment to end a successful program on a high note.

As you are designing your program or event, think of music and be inspired. Keep a song in your heart and in your agenda to see what new energy it can bring to your group!

Questions or interested in booking your next event at Ruttger’s Bay Lake Lodge? Contact our Sales Department at 800-450-1350.

Thank you!
