Alaska Travel Stories

A Meeting Planner's Best Catch

by Mari Killian

I am a corporate meeting planner and part of my job is to plan and execute reward/business meeting events for our Champions' Club. Our Great Alaska Adventure is one of three options for annual qualifiers and our trip August 18-21 was our most well-attended event in 2009. From amazing scenery to fabulous fishing and spectacular weather, our AK excursion could not have been more perfect for our very valued guests. But from a meeting planner viewpoint, the Great Alaska Lodge is truly paradise. The property is perfectly-situated on the Kenai Penninsula and every room faces jade blue water and massive mountains. The Lodge is immaculat, the kitchen pristine, the food delectable, sleeping rooms and beds relaxing and comfortable. And the Lodge employees and River guides are the most hard-working, fun-loving and gracious group of people you'll ever meet..they are second-to-none. Once you submit your housing list, the staff takes over. They will make your job so easy you'll want to take your groups back year -after - year. For all the meeting planners looking for an unrivaled fishing adventure and a red carpet experience ... Great Alaska is your destination. Thank you to everyone representing Great Alaska for your outstanding hospitality.
