According to Amy Scott, director of
marketing at the Greensboro Area CVB, the
theater accommodates a variety of events
for groups, from hors d’oeuvre and cocktail
receptions to buffets complete with a band
Groups can also check the schedule of
classic and contemporary plays at the Triad
Stage, another Greensboro-based theater
that welcomes groups.
If the group is made up of college sports
enthusiasts, Scott recommends that planners check out the ACC Hall of Champions,
which features interactive displays, such as a
“you call the play” broadcasting booth, and
unique exhibits, including trophies, school
mascots and photos highlighting the Atlantic Coast Conference’s history.
And for an entertaining and one-of-a-kind teambuilding experience, groups
should look no further than Sky Wild at
the Greensboro Science Center’s Animal
Discovery Zoo, according to Scott.
