Heading To An Industry Convention? 3 Reasons To Transport Your Team Via Charter Bus

Posted on

Are you looking for a way to help your team see the big picture? Heading to that industry convention in another state might help your employees to understand the current culture of your business, while giving everyone the chance to connect on a personal level. Here are three reasons to transport your team via charter bus so that you can make the most of the experience:

1: Employees Will Be Present and On-Time

If you are attending an industry convention, you might be thinking about setting up a booth to show off your company. Unfortunately, if any of your team members are missing or late, it can make your company look like a joke. Your competitors might wonder why the head of marketing isn't there when you seal a deal with a signage vendor, or why your human resources person didn't make it on-time for that important insurance seminar. 

However, if you decide to charter a bus, you can rest assured knowing that all of your employees will arrive on-time. Because your employees won't have their own cars, you won't have to worry about giving directions to the venue or hoping employee's cars don't break down. As long as you can herd everyone on the bus, you can deliver your workers to the right place at the right time.  

2: Improved Productivity

How will you take care of business while you are away? If you need to remain available to your vendors and clients, a charter bus can help you to take care of work matters. Here are a few features that many charter busses offer and how they can help:

  • WIFI: To keep your employees connected, many van lines offer high speed WIFI. With an Internet connection, your workers will be able to complete orders, finish client paperwork, and respond to e-mails in a timely manner.
  • Electrical Outlets: Don't worry about your laptop or cell phone dying during the trip. Some motor coaches contain electrical outlets near every seat, so you won't have to deal with frustrating power failures.   
  • Comfort: When employees are happy, they tend to be more productive. Charter buses contain on-board restrooms, comfortable seating, and powerful air conditioning so that your workers can get more done.

Remember that while a charter bus costs about $960 per day on average, a few lost accounts could cost you a lot more than that in the long run. Investing in a charter bus will help your employees to stay on task, even while you are in the middle of nowhere.

3: Everyone Can Have Fun

After your team delivers insightful presentations and secures new business relationships at that convention, you might be ready to let everyone kick back and have a little fun. One of the greatest things about a charter bus is that they offer the perfect party environment. Here are a few things that your staff might enjoy:

  • Drinking: Because none of your employees will be operating a car, you won't have to worry as much about safety. Your workers can let loose and enjoy a few cocktails without endangering other drivers. Also, because you won't have to assign designated drivers, all of your employees can enjoy themselves.  
  • Bus Extras: Some charter buses contain fun lighting displays, disco balls, and powerful sound systems. If you don't have time to party in your destination city, you can turn that charter bus into a party bus with the flick of a switch. Some charter buses even contain large flat-screen televisions so you can host a movie night on-board.

Making your next business trip fun might help your employees to enjoy the experience and become better friends.

Investing in charter bus services might make your entire trip a success while helping you to keep your business alive while you are away.
