"Take Me Out to the... Meeting?", An Eventective User from Houston, Texas
I manage quite a few employees, and I am always looking for new, fun places to have meetings. I found my favorite meeting room last month, and it was a conference room overlooking the field at Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros.

Minute Maid Park will let you rent out their conference rooms during normal business hours or during baseball games. I held a quarterly meeting during one of their day games. The conference rooms have three walls, and the fourth wall is open to the field. Some seating is available facing the field. Most of the walls are moveable, in case you need a larger room than is offered. For this reason, they can accommodate meetings up to 300 people in size. Tables and chairs are provided by Minute Maid Park. I gave an estimate for the number of people who would be attending, and they had everything set up ahead of time. We actually had 25 more people than expected, but the staff was wonderful! They got together and quickly found additional seating. They did this with a smile!

In addition to the fun of being able to watch a baseball game during a meeting, the food is great. They do require that you purchase their food, but you have a choice of several different types. This must be selected in advance. You simply call the conference room manager, give them a budget, the number of attendees, and they put menu choices together. We chose Mexican Food since some guests would want to try TexMex, and it was delicious. You can also order wine, beer, or open bar from Minute Maid Park, but we did not do so since it was a daytime work meeting. The alcohol is quite expensive. It is geared toward corporate budgets. The food was not inexpensive, but it was fairly reasonable. We did need to order more food, however, and this was quite pricey.

If you have a corporate pocketbook, and you want an amazingly memorable location to house a meeting, Minute Maid Park is a great place to have a meeting!
