 Running Conference Program Highlights

Daily General Sessions:  Industry relevant topics presented to the entire audience.

Idea Labs: One hour sessions and presentations that drill down on specific topics. Each session presenter is considered an expert on their specific topic.

Industry Give & Take Session: The ever popular “round tables” are 20 minute rotations by table topic. Each table is assigned a facilitator of that topic and conversation. This is a great opportunity to share and learn directly from your peers.

Why Stay at a Savannah Vacation Rental?

Firstly, all the rooms at the Hyatt Regency, where the conference is taking place, are already booked. Running USA’s other lodging suggestion, the Bohemian Hotel, is asking over $200 per room. If you choose one of our properties, you support a local business owner, stay in the heart of the historic district of Savannah and have access to full kitchens, where you can prep some of your own food rather than eating out for every meal. Check out our Rental House at 109 West Liberty Street – with comparable prices, especially if you have a group of four or more, we would love to be your Savannah lodging choice!

Business travelers have made the following comments on TripAdvisor about our Savannah Vacation rental at 109 West:

Our Savannah Vacation Rentals are ideal for business travel.

  • “Don’t be apprehensive about too much togetherness or a lack of privacy. Those are non-issues at 109 West.”
  • “It exceeded every expectation we had.”
  • “We stayed here for a business forum retreat and this place was spectacular!”
  • “We have held our Executive Board Retreat and Planning Session at 109 West now for 3 years running. … We build teamwork by cooking our own breakfast in the well furnished kitchens.”
  • “Our company rented the entire property @ 109 West, which worked out wonderfully for our company wide sales meeting…. Convenient to other business meetings, as well as downtown Savannah.”
  • “We had 10 participants and everyone had their own living quarters…. We were able to conduct our meeting in the garden level living area. Being able to conduct team building and presentations without leaving the facility assisted with that aspect of the meeting.”
  • “It was the perfect place for our guests to enjoy their stay as well as conduct our daily business meetings…. This property exceeded our best expectations and receives a hearty “must try” for all.

Business travelers often stay in hotels, and while there is nothing wrong with that, it is a missed opportunity. Sharing a living space is a team-building exercise in and of itself. Living under one roof requires give and take, even with simple things like making coffee in the morning and washing the glasses at the end of the day. The Savannah Vacation Rental at 109 West allows for many of these simple team-building exercises. At the same time, it is spacious enough that colleagues will each have their own space and feel comfortable.

Consider the property at 109 West the next time your business takes you to Savannah. Contact us to learn about midweek discounts – you’ll find this Savannah Vacation Home is a great value for the money.
