“At air events global, we see many local experiences encompassed into an event, and the most popular that we see every year is in Sydney. Vivid Sydney is a festival of light, music and ideas. It transforms Sydney into a wonderland of light art sculptures, innovative light installations and grand-scale projections for all to enjoy—for free. It is a magical celebration of light-design excellence and the world’s largest outdoor art-gallery. So many events over the 23 days of Vivid bring this local experience into their event. For example, this year we have one of our corporate clients hosting an awards dinner at the Sydney Park Hyatt and are then taking all of their attendees on a surprise boat cruise around Sydney Harbour to enjoy the Vivid experience.” —Victoria Garlick, CEO of air events global

“Scavenger hunts, clambakes (I am based in New England), local trivia contests and teamwork events on local beaches.” —Nancy Settle-Murphy, president of Guided Insights

“I’ve seen local experiences incorporated into an event that included live music and interactive experiences for guests, which people always love. We incorporate this into our events at the resort. For example, some of our local artist partners, Mark McDowell and Brent Bond, are also in a band. They come over for fireside jam sessions at sundown on Friday evenings. Everyone loves the ‘impromptu’ musical performances.” —Scott Mason, general manager at Andaz Scottsdale Resort & Spa

“Neighborhoods for after-hours events. Millennials in particular don’t see an after-hours cocktail party as the last event of the night. They are looking to experience even more of the local vibe at lounges and other venues that are trendy in neighborhoods. So, in New York, holding a corporate dinner at a venue near a hot neighborhood like the Lower East Side will further enhance attendees’ evenings and enhance networking.” —Karen Shackman, founder of Shackman Associates New York
