Rhinebeck, New York (PRWEB) November 20, 2013
The Beekman Arms and Delamater Inn and Conference Center of Historic Rhinebeck have announced a new program designed to generate corporate tourism. Having experienced a dramatic uptick in business following the wedding of President Bill Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea Clinton, when the Beekman Arms hosted parties and media for the highly publicized event, the Banta family, owners of the Beekman Arms and Delamater Inn and Conference Center, report growing interest in corporate travel and events, likely a result of the exposure the Inn received just a few years ago.
“Rhinebeck is, without question, a perfect destination for travelers. While we have catered to corporate groups for many years, we are now launching a formal corporate program aimed at bringing more groups to our Inn and Conference Center for conferences, meetings, and retreats, which will no doubt have very favorable economic impact for our entire community and perhaps even our region at large”, stated George Banta Jr, of the Banta family, owners of the Beekman Arms and Delamater Inn and Conference Center, a member of Historic Hotels of America.
“Not only do we have a unique location in the historic district of downtown Rhinebeck, but we are surrounded by countless other points of interest in our Hudson Valley region, allowing companies to redefine the experience of the corporate retreat. We can offer our guests luxurious accommodations in our inn, as well as a conference center with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment, but beyond that, we can provide them with everything they need for a unique corporate travel experience based on the fact that we are centrally located to historic attractions and estates, beautiful hiking trails, sailing opportunities on the Hudson River, and the best restaurants and shopping in the Northeast, all just steps away from their conference or corporate event”, Banta said. “We want to play a significant role in the growth of tourism in New York State, and by promoting corporate travel to Rhinebeck, we think we can help make a difference for our overall economy”.
According to the U.S. Travel Association, in 2011, income from the travel industry was $813 billion, and supported 7.5 million jobs for American people and $124 billion in tax revenue.
Conference center meeting space is available for daily or half-day rates, and corporate packages which include overnight accommodations for groups at discounted rates can also be reserved. For more information, call 845.876.7077.
