Giving Back is a Great Way to Improve A Convention

Meeting planners sometimes need to think about adding more to the meeting/convention agenda. One way is to give back to the community, which can be a great way to change up an event. This idea can become addicting. In fact, it has been steadily increasing at annual events and is becoming part of the corporate culture.

Companies have included teambuilding activities as part of their meetings. Giving back to a community for not-for-profit organizations such as United Way, Habitat for Humanity, assembling after-school care backpacks for underprivileged children and meals for the elderly are just a few ways a company can build passion for philanthropy.

This addition to meetings and conventions has made companies want to continue helping organization all of the time. The meeting spaces at DCCH offer plenty of room for many of the activities indoor or outside.

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay and for taking such good care of the team, coaches, and support staff this past weekend. The trip went very smooth and the team had their first victory over Millikin in 40+ years! We really appreciate your hard work and wanted to extend our sincere appreciation to you and your staff that made everything possible. Thank you again for your hospitality.
