How to Design a Successful Out of Town Conference

by Mike Slivka

Planning an out of town conference does not need to be stressful when you are working with the expert staff of innovative professionals at Mohegan Sun Pocono. While a conference at a casino may seem unconventional, Mohegan Sun Pocono is a “one-stop shop” that offers meeting organizers the ability to create tailor-made experiences.

Mohegan Sun Pocono meets every objective and fits every budget, while allowing attendees to have experiences they won’t soon forget.

“At Mohegan Sun Pocono our meeting expectations are as high as yours. We host over 600 meetings and conferences every year,” said Mike Slivka, Director of Sales and Catering. “We work with Association and Corporate meeting organizers from all over the country to ensure that every detail is handled and that the event runs smoothly so when everyone is onsite they can have a productive meeting and then enjoy all our property has to offer.”

Slivka’s advice to meeting organizers outside the area is simple. “Disclose your budget and we will help you maximize it. When we have that information early on in the process, we can customize your experience with greater success all around.”

Slivka adds, “We love to be creative, and our clients love it too. Once you secure the date, talk to our food and beverage team early in the process and let us know your goals and objectives and feel free to send us some photos. The more information we have, the better we can design an event that is perfect for your organization; we can have some fun with it too, and make it uniquely yours.”

Finally Slivka states “Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Call or email any time and we are happy to talk things through with you, no matter where you’re located. At Mohegan Sun Pocono, unparalleled service is an expectation, not an exception. We are here for you, from that first phone call or email until the event is complete. We aren’t satisfied until you are.”

Whether it’s a traditional meeting for 10 to 1,600 inside Mohegan Sun Pocono’s 20,000 square-foot Convention Center, its multiple, flexible and strikingly-designed individual meeting rooms, a unique meeting space inside Timbers Buffet, Pacers Clubhouse, Seasons Ballroom overlooking the track or in the center of it all at Center Bar; Mohegan Sun Pocono is dedicated to make your meeting a memorable and successful one.
