Expert planning for conferences, meetings, events, and golf programs

Arizona
Phoenix, Tucson



Phoenix


The old West and new West meld seamlessly in Phoenix, where a dynamic downtown and immaculate resorts share the cactus-bedazzled landscape with horse stables and mountain trails. Phoenix basks in more sunshine than any other major U.S. city – desert topography and urban sophistication. The dining and entertainment district have lured hot chefs, young artists and independent retailers to downtown Phoenix. This city offers top-tier meeting facilities and tons of on-site activities. Visit Streetscape and up-and-coming strip of cafes, galleries, funky stores and nightspots, travel the new light-rail system, then stroll back into Phoenix’s Victorian past, and enjoy great restaurants, and an English pub! The Warehouse District offers great off-site venues for those great events.
Of course let us not forget the abundance of incredible golf courses!


Tucson


Tucson is the urban hub for Southern Arizona, yet it is surrounded by open desert and five mountain ranges, where saguaro cactus can give way to aspens, pines and occasional dustings of snow. Much of Tucson’s appeal starts with its history-an agrarian Tohono O’odham settlement which Spanish missionaries found in the late 1600’s. You can see remnants of the 1775 Spanish fort and a modern-day reconstruction at Presidio San Augustin del Tucson, a small museum with living history events. Stroll the sidewalks of Barrio Historico where brightly colored adobe homes date from 1800’s, and the crown jewel of Tucson’s historical attractions, Mission San Xavier de Bac, founded by missionary Eusebio Kino in 1692...and many more culture experiences.

Taliesin West

Taliesin West is a national historic landmark nestled in the desert foothills of the McDowell Mountains outside of Scottsdale, AZ. It is also the home of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and Taliesin, The Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture.

Inspired by the southwestern landscape, Wright sought a ‘nobly simple’ architecture in Taliesin West. Primitive but elegant, Taliesin West’s monumental masonry feels as much an ancient ruin unearthed from the Sonoran desert, as the twentieth-century icon of modern architecture that it has become.  It was built and maintained almost entirely by Wright and his apprentices, making it among the most personal of the architect’s creations.
