Phoenix, Arizona: The “Valley of the Sun”
Phoenix is one of Arizona’s most beautiful locations to host a conference, convention or professional training event.
Phoenix, Arizona is home to more than 1,445,000 residents and the sixth most populated city in the United States. Its scorching summers and warm winters aren’t surprising due to its location in the Sonoran Desert. Phoenix is a diverse city. Close by you’ll find the communities of Scottsdale, Glendale, Mesa and Tempe, Arizona.
Because I grew up in Arizona, my first exposure to Phoenix was the rivalry between Arizona State and the University of Arizona (U of A). I have lots of friends who live in Phoenix, Glendale, Mesa, and Scottsdale as well. Some of my earliest memories consist of going track meets in Phoenix and running the half mile race there. Phoenix is definitely the hub of the southwest and a place of great business industry and culture.
Phoenix, Arizona is buzzing with life and tourists, which is the number one industry in the city. Along with tourism, aircraft parts, electronic equipment, agricultural chemicals, radios, air-conditioning equipment, leather goods and Native American crafts bring in revenue for the city as well.

Most use facilitators, instructors, coaches and/or certified trainers in corporate staff retreats and team building events to make the experience more powerful and applicable.
