A new trend is emerging that is taking the gathering place of the world of small and large companies to new levels. CEOs, presidents, and senior managers are now beginning to see the advantages of hiring a vacation rental property to host meetings.

Of course, the biggest draw these days is the ability to save a lot of money on more traditional hotel meetings where not only do you need to hire a meeting room, but you also have to pay for multiple rooms to accommodate staff on overnight stays. It can be quite an expensive proposition.

A vacation rental often has two, three, four, or even more rooms and this means that the cost of hosting meeting attendees is significantly less and of course hiring a meeting room is totally unnecessary as the rental On vacation you have ample space to spread out, formally or informally.

Entrepreneurs are also seeing the tremendous benefits of keeping everyone in the same place and not sprawling across a large hotel campus. Good team spirit is a critical factor in today's business world, and building that winning team is a difficult task that can be time consuming if not managed properly. A vacation rental really helps foster the right spirit as everyone works and plays together, and that means it is much easier to keep everyone focused on the business goal.

Vacation rentals also score highly when it comes to dining. Big bills often run everyday in the business world entertaining clients and organizing staff meetings, but a vacation rental offers the opportunity to save money and a unique environment for doing business. Most vacation rentals have a fully equipped kitchen so you can prepare snacks and meals as and when you want, just as you would in the office or at home. Some vacation rental companies even have professional chefs available to pamper their guests and staff, but there is often someone who likes to show off their culinary skills by cooking delicious food for everyone and this can be a foolproof winner when it comes to creating profitable partnerships and relationships for the future.

Another great attraction about a vacation rental is that very often they will have two or more areas where you can get together. Focus groups are easy to set up as most rentals have a formal area and an informal area and nothing better than a poolside lunch or dinner with a great view, like in the mountains, to finish off that important business matter.

Very often, employers have reported their best results after their colleagues and business partners have relaxed a bit in the vacation rental. Swimming, taking a walk on the beach or playing board games together very often makes people in a better frame of mind to make better business decisions and keeps them cool to make the next big decision.
