I recently stumbled upon the Magellan Idea Center located in the Atherton Lofts in South End and was blown away that there was such a great space designed for groups or companies looking for a creative meetng space. Sandy Hewitt is their Director of Creative Events and she graciously agreed to do a guest blog for me about Magellan. Thank you Sandy!
Off-Site Meetings at Magellan Idea Center Spark Creativity
Has the productivity of your regular Thursday afternoon meeting reached an all-time low? No matter how welcoming, professional or high-tech your office may be, it’s still “the office” to those who work there. Shake things up next time. Try meeting in a different environment, one that encourages creativity. It may be just what your team needs to spark THE NEXT BIG THING. The Magellan Idea Center is a fun and stimulation meeting space in SouthEnd designed specifically to get people out of the ordinary four walls of an office space to encourage open dialogue and inspire new ways of thinking.
Located in a restored circa 1893 textile mill in the heart of SouthEnd, the Magellan Idea Center is the only space of its kind in Charlotte and the ideal setting for a unique and refreshing alternative to a typical meeting facility. The open loft boasts features important in a creative space, according to design experts – high ceilings, natural light, comfortable furnishings and stimulating colors and textures. The 2,000 square feet of space includes one main meeting room and two break-out areas. Every amenity your meeting could need is included in the space from complimentary snacks and beverages to wireless internet. Start your day with free coffee and end it with a jam session on acoustic guitar with a tambourine and karaoke machine back up.
As a deal for their SouthEnd neighbors, Magellan Idea Center is offering a 15% discount for meetings booked by the end of December to organizations that mention this SouthEnd blog post. Contact Sandy@CenterForIdeas.com for more information or to rent the center. Now, GET OUT OF THE OFFICE and into the zone at Magellan Idea Center!
