At Disney Meetings & Events, we have our finger on the pulse of 2024 trends in the events industry, and we are ready to help you accomplish your 2024 goals. From bleisure events to inspirational backdrops, keep reading to gather inspiration for your next meeting or event in the new year.

Bleisure & Making it a Family Affair

In 2023, we saw more and more emphasis on “bleisure” events. Bleisure meetings allow attendees to enjoy the meeting destination, bond with their team, and even spend time with their family. Allowing time in your itinerary after a busy day of meetings to relax and have some fun encourages productivity and success. With innovative theme parks and customizable events to engage with your team and their families, the bleisure opportunities at Disney are endless. Strategically plan your event itinerary to allow for time in the Disney parks, or arrange a dynamic event for the whole group to enjoy - either option will make your attendees feel valued and appreciated.

Immerse Your Group

Interactive events and visually engaging content are king. Step up your next meeting with dynamic visuals and power openers that get your audience ready to learn and motivated to take action. Disney Meetings & Events partners with technology experts Encore to provide everything you need to power your next event. From custom lighting packages to state-of-the-art projections, work with us to create a uniquely immersive multimedia event.

Food & Beverage

Food & beverage takes the spotlight at meetings & events. Harnessing the power of culinary storytelling will enhance the impact of your gathering. Tell the story of a meaningful cultural moment through diverse meals. Close the meal with fun desserts that harken back to beloved Disney stories. Your attendees’ personal stories also matter; let them know by providing options that suit all palettes and dietary preferences. Chef Action Stations allow your attendees to interact and play a part in their experience, which is proving to be a popular trend in the meeting & events industry. There are countless ways to educate, celebrate, and diversify your meeting experience through food and beverage. Learn more about our culinary capabilities and offerings here.

Charting New Territories

Get ready for exciting incentive trips and inspiring settings in 2024. EPCOT’s highly-anticipated World Celebration has opened, and Guests can now visit Dreamer’s Point. The new statue honoring Walt Disney looks out into World Showplace, inviting guests to dream big. Your team can be reminded of the power of imagination and the magic of possibility, both values that motivate and inspire.

In 2023, Disney Cruise Line revealed more details about the newest addition to the fleet, the Disney Treasure. Inspired by stories like Coco, The Jungle Cruise and Aladdin, travelers will be inspired by their sense of adventure and charting new territories. This is an ideal backdrop for an incentive group - keep your eyes peeled for more information.

Enjoy Pixar Fest at Disneyland Resort! Celebrate a successful meeting with your team at Disneyland Resort by enjoying the return of Together Forever - A Nighttime Spectacular and other entertainment celebrating Pixar favorites.
