Fresh Air Never Felt So Good!
Vermont has long been recognized as one of the safest states in the country, and now there are even more reasons to consider Vermont when thinking about the safety of your upcoming meeting or event. Vermont was quick to lock down and make a strong defense when Covid-19 struck our country and our public health statistics reflect that aggressive approach to safety. We are currently open for in-state travel and will be welcoming travelers from outside of Vermont soon. As we begin to slowly reopen our lodging sector, hotels, inns, and resorts have put new protocols into effect to ensure the health and safety of guests.
And Vermont is naturally a great place for events. There is lots of room to spread out in the Green Mountain state. Beyond planning for social distancing in your meeting rooms, you can make the great outdoors your own ancillary area that can make social distancing during events easy and even fun. Plan a break-out session on the great lawn, a lakeside or courtyard lunch, and an outdoor afternoon yoga break to truly energize your attendees.
And keep in mind how close we are. Attendees may not be comfortable with jumping on a plane for a meeting anytime soon. Vermont is in close proximity to many major metropolitan cities in the Northeast making the state an easy-to-access destination. For example, Woodstock is just two hours and fifteen minutes from Boston and four and a quarter hours from New York City while Manchester is only three hours and twenty minutes from Boston and four and a quarter hours from New York.
All things considered, the state's impressive performance against COVID-19, the opportunity to stage aspects of your event outdoors, and our easy, drivetime access, Vermont should be on the shortlist for your next event.
