Brasada Ranch, located outside of Bend, Oregon, recently unveiled new meeting venues and group experiences, expanding upon one of the most idyllic venues in the Pacific Northwest.

At Brasada Ranch, guests are inspired by the wide-open setting, sustainable and contemporary design, limitless recreation opportunities and flexible event spaces that include indoor barn venues, outdoor areas, and new spaces including The Studio and Cascade Event Lawn.

For groups looking to really immerse themselves in the destination, Brasada Ranch now offers a Ranch to Table interactive dining experience. The venue has partnered with local suppliers for years and has now expanded upon that venture to create a new teambuilding opportunity. Groups can now go to a local farm to tour the grounds, meet the farmers, pick their own herbs and vegetables and then return to Brasada Ranch for a private culinary class where they make recipes highlighting the items they foraged.

Additional new teambuilding activities include a new adult pool, adventurous activities like horseback riding or biking through the resort’s property and collaborative recreation events and workshops. Groups can bond over challenge courses designed to encourage collaboration, problem solving workshops, team sports or lawn games all planned through the resort’s Brasada CREW program.

Daily life has been significantly altered by COVID-19, no matter the industry. Many are working from home, while children stay inside for online schooling. Meetings and events have been hit especially hard, since the essence of the industry is face-to-face interactions. While we continue to self-isolate, plenty of organizations have been offering webinars with insights on how to handle the pandemic—watching webinars is a great way to use that extra time you might have used for your commute to learn something useful.
