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.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Portland will be home to the first Ritz-Carlton in the Pacific Northwest. Developer BPM Real Estate Group is bringing the brand to the city, with an anticipated opening in early 2023. Plans call for a 35-story tower with 251 hotel rooms and 138 residential units, including eight penthouses.
