Finding Meeting Venues Off the Beaten Path

Finding Meeting Venues Off the Beaten Path
When it comes to holding meetings in the business world, most people immediately think of the most popular metropolitan areas – New York City, Los Angeles, and Washington D.C. While these locations do offer plenty of wonderful venues to hold meetings, does this mean corporations stationed in more rural areas need to travel hundreds of miles to host an event? Parts of the US that aren't renowned for urban development can still hold fully staffed meetings at fancy yet affordable locations, if you know where to look.

A perfect example of wonderful meeting venues tucked away, hiding under the noses of rural business owners, is the Tamarack Conference Center located in Beckley, West Virginia. Though thoroughly developed in its own right, this small city in the southern portion of the state boasts a population of only approximately 18,000 people across 9.5 square miles. Stately homes line the small streets, each corner dotted with small businesses and bus stops. Amidst the warm and welcoming streets of Beckley you'll find plenty of parks, recreational activities, and – of course – the Tamarack Conference Center.

If you've ever thought that you and your employees could never make it out of West Virginia to hold a large scale business meeting, Unique Venues has a solution for you. The Tamarack Conference Center sprawls across 12,000 square feet of beautifully decorated fields and buildings, each specifically designed to accommodate your business, convention, meeting and private occasion needs. The staff has been trained in the finer points of assisting and serving various types of gatherings, from large corporate get-togethers to weddings.

Local amenities include a direct connection to “Tamarack: The Best of West Virginia” - the nation’s first showcase of handcrafts, fine art and regional cuisine. Visitors will have the opportunity to purchase souvenirs, buy locally made snacks, and relax after long speeches or demonstrations. Your friends, employees, or family members are sure to enjoy the rustic retail store, working studios for resident artisans, fine art gallery, theater, and A Taste of West Virginia food court, managed by our Greenbrier-trained chefs. With a little something for everyone, attendees are sure to have a wonderful time.
