We make it simple
The area has been a destination for many years for groups holding conventions. Most groups that hold meetings in the region range in size from 15 to 250 people, although for large events there are facilities that have handled up to 10,000 people.
Typically, the facility provides meeting space and meals, and helps to coordinate events at other local destinations, such as boat tours or sightseeing trips.
State associations and professional or trade associations are the groups who most often book space for conventions.
Keep the group together
Groups come to meet in Lake George from all over the country. It could be anywhere for 50 to 1,000 people. Most often the groups are interested in a dinner party on a boat, or want to charter a boat for the day. The company can provide narration of the points of historical interest if the group desires.
The corporate end of the tourist trade has been growing in recent years. Whether it's for meetings, or rewarding employees, or both, companies look to Lake George as the ideal place to spend some quality time.
One group that has been holding its convention in Lake George for a number of years is Americade, a gathering of 50,000 motorcycle fans who assemble in the area each year. The group aims to provide "a gathering of friendly, fun-loving folks, for whom motorcycling is a social hobby, but not some form of rebellion. It's NOT the place for shows of speed, hostile attitudes, or illegally load motorcycles," according to the organizer's Web site.
Of course, businesses and associations aren't the only groups that will find plenty to do in Lake George: your family will, too! A slew of festivals and specials events fills the area calendar year round. As Capital Region resident and Lake George tourist Melissa Hoopes remarked, "If you can't find something to do in Lake George twelve months a year, then you aren't looking.”
