How to Make Your National Sales Meeting Unforgettable – in Boston!

A national meeting for your sales team should offer more than what happens in the room – but adventures beyond. Boston is just the place you are looking for!

When planning an impactful, attention-grabbing national sales meeting, location is paramount. You want an energizing destination brimming with local charm and dynamic activities to motivate your team. For your next landmark event, choose history-rich Boston – a city renowned for seamlessly blending Revolutionary-era historic sites with gleaming skyscrapers and cutting-edge innovation hubs.

From retracing the footsteps of America’s founders along the Freedom Trail to catching a home run over the Green Monster at iconic Fenway Park, Boston overflows with quintessential experiences guaranteed to make your meeting unforgettable. Pair that with decadent grilled lobster, remarkably easy coast-to-coast accessibility via plane, train or automobile, and tech-equipped downtown venues like the sunlight-filled Loft on Two make for a successful national sales meeting.

With its compact and walkable layout, European-style charm, world-class universities, and colonial roots interwoven with modern urban flair, Boston offers an irresistible backdrop for your next national gathering. Attendees will return home excited about the future and ready to smash sales goals after just a few days in one of America’s most historic yet evolving cities.

Keep reading to learn more about how Boston goes above and beyond in providing accessibility, activities, world-class dining and state-of-the-art meeting facilities to create an environment where your attendees will thrive. You’ll see why Boston should be your number one location choice for an energizing yet focused national sales meeting.

Accessibility Simplified

Boston makes travel seamless for attendees from all corners of the country. Logan International Airport provides direct flights from every major city nationwide and is conveniently situated just minutes from downtown. Airport shuttles, taxis, and the Silver Line bus connect directly from Logan terminals to downtown hotels, restaurants, and meeting sites. From Logan to South Station is less than 15 minutes via public transit – and directly across the street from one of the premier Boston meeting venues, Loft on Two at One Financial.

Driving to downtown is simplified by major highways I-90, I-93 and I-95 ushering attendees right into the heart of Boston. Self-parking, valet services, and parking garages – some with event discounts – abound at downtown venues. Garage parking also allows easy access for coaches and limo transportation.

Boston’s walkability and public transportation network of subway, bus, rail and water taxi make navigating the city a breeze. Maps posted at each transit stop simplify route planning. And the single CharlieCard pass enables easy switching between transportation modes. Taxis and rideshares like Uber and Lyft operate throughout the city for added convenience. It’s a much easier city to walk or take the “T” than it is to drive and park after a day of meetings – and there’s no hassle or cost of rental cars. 

Quintessential Group Activities

In between meetings, immerse your team in Boston’s distinctive local vibe. Historical tours like the famous Freedom Trail and Paul Revere’s house capture the city’s revolutionary spirit. See where the iconic Boston Tea Party protest took place, then fast forward to modern innovation with a guided tour of the MIT campus.

One of the newest places in Boston has become a “can’t miss experience”: The Rose Kennedy Greenway (aka “The Greenway”). This beautiful green space meanders from the Financial District to the North End and along the way you can enjoy walking paths, food trucks, public art, live performances, beer gardens and even a classic carousel. There is something for everyone. 

Boston was born from intrepid sea goers, so whale watching, harbor island cruises, and a chance to visit the oldest commissioned U.S. naval ship, The Constitution, give your attendees a whiff of the sea air – and can remind them to strive to be the “captain of their own destiny” in their “sea of sales”. 

The New England Aquarium and Museum of Science make for popular indoor group outings with interactive exhibits and IMAX movies. 

Duck boat tours on land and sea showcase Boston’s famous sites in a unique way. And there is always something to do with seasonal activities like fall foliage tours to catch brilliant colors, summer Boston Pops concerts at the Hatch Shell on the Charles River, and ice skating on the Boston Common surrounded by a stunning skyline. Boston’s many distinct neighborhoods are walkable and accessible by transit, making it easy to fully experience the city, regardless of the season.

There is nothing like a Boston sports fan. Join the locals to cheer on one of the major league teams (Celtics, Bruins, Red Sox and Patriots) or try something you may not have experienced yet with the Cannons LaCrosse Club, the New England Revolution or the Renegades – Boston’s professional tackle football team and 4-times National Champions of the Women’s Football Alliance (WFA Pro).

Local Flavor

Boston’s dining scene reflects its coastal New England location and colonial roots. Seafood shines, from buttery lobster rolls to clam chowder brimming with local catch. Little Italy in the North End thrives with charming restaurants and Old World bakeries.
Classic sports bars pair local craft brew with New England staples like steamed lobsters, fresh oysters, and loaded clam chowder. International influences also prosper – try Chinatown’s dim sum, Allston’s sushi bars, or Irish fare in pubs throughout Boston. Looking to combine food and team building beyond the traditional dinner out? Try a tasty culinary adventure of a food tour or group cooking class.

With cuisine ranging from funky food trucks to fine dining, Boston offers diverse options for feeding the body and soul. Need to take a local client to dinner while in town and have a productive conversation? Consider booking your venues’ executive meeting space for great food – and less interruptions from noisy dining neighbors.
