In this economic climate, many businesses have had to make tough cuts which often include corporate retreats. We believe these getaways provide the missing spark needed for optimal productivity upon return to the office.
Ojai, CA (PRWEB) May 09, 2012
Ojai Valley Inn & Spa, the iconic Southern California, AAA Five Diamond retreat is excited to announce the launch of Save Our Office, a Facebook contest designed for a hardworking company whose annual office retreats have fallen to the wayside in recent years. The three-month online contest will end by awarding one lucky group a once-in-a-lifetime dream corporate retreat.
To vie for the Save Our Office grand prize, valued at up to $25,000, entrants from companies of all sizes across the nation must submit a video or essay, describing in their most creative and compelling way, why their office deserves to be saved through a getaway at Ojai Valley Inn & Spa, which for decades has been a favored destination retreat of Hollywood’s elite, moguls, businessmen and captains of industry. Entries may be viewed on the Save Our Office Facebook page where participants and guests are encouraged to vote for their favorite and most worthy company.
“We are excited to create a program that will reward an enterprising company during difficult financial times with the one of a kind meetings experience we offer at Ojai Valley Inn & Spa,” said Chris Kandziora, director of marketing. “In this economic climate, many businesses have had to make tough cuts which often include corporate retreats. We believe these getaways provide the missing spark needed for optimal productivity upon return to the office.”
The Save Our Office comprehensive prize package includes all accommodations, conference space, dining and refreshments, and team building activities, up to $25,000, over a three-day period.* The contest begins May 1, 2012, and all entries must be submitted to the Save Our Office Facebook page by July 31, 2012. The entry garnering the most votes will be announced as the winner on August 6, 2012. The Inn’s accomplished events team will work with winners to create a truly customized experience based on the company’s needs. Team building activities may include group geocaching, a sophisticated scavenger hunt with GPS devices, CSI-style murder mysteries that teams must solve together and Top Chef-themed challenges where groups are judged on their culinary creations. When it’s time to relax, colleagues may enjoy an old-fashioned carnival at the Inn’s quaint Red Barn or off-site activities such as open-air Jeep excursions and olive oil tastings at a working olive farm.
Ojai Valley Inn & Spa is surrounded by the dramatic Topa Topa mountain range and sets a picturesque stage for distinctive meetings that are reflective of the artistic, eclectic and spiritually rich town of Ojai. In addition to 35,000 square feet of stunning indoor and outdoor meeting space, the expansive resort encourages playtime with unique and inspiring activities including discovering the inner artist with a visit to the Artist Cottage and Apothecary where local artisans guide classes that promote self-expression. Those who want to hit the links can do so at the picturesque Ojai Country Club golf course. Or, after a long day of productive meetings, groups may relax into post-meeting nirvana at the 31,000 square-foot Spa Ojai with an extensive menu of personalized therapies and treatments. Off-property group excursions include guided bird watching tours, artist studio tours, jeep tours, horseback riding and fishing, surfing and kayak lessons in the Pacific Ocean or nearby Lake Casitas.
