2023 is anticipated to be a record-breaking year for group travel, as employers and groups seek to foster meaningful connections and integrate wellness into their corporate and event travel itineraries. With 26 direct flight destinations including major hubs, and within driving distance of major cities, including Atlanta, Charlotte and Nashville, Asheville’s abundance of outdoor and wellness experiences, award-winning restaurants and inspiring cultural attractions makes it a top destination for an invigorating meeting that will leave attendees feeling recharged.
Three additional boutique hotels opening downtown this year hearken back to Asheville’s ritzy Jazz Age, when a boisterous creative class flocked to the mountains looking for an escape:
Wrong Way Cabins & Campground is another unique lodging option for groups that opened in 2022. The site features 16 tiny A-frame cabins, just steps away from Cultivate Climbing’s rock-climbing gym and Carrier Park alongside the French Broad River. It offers a unique concierge service for booking excursions, wellness activities and even “voluntourism” activities. The 1,200 square foot event space and 8-person conference room can also be reserved for private event bookings and meetings.
