Armed with smartphones, tablets and laptops, meeting attendees are more connected than ever, but often have a hard time unplugging and focusing on the event they are attending. To draw attendees back to the present, Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa in San Antonio helps planners orchestrate meetings that make mindfulness a priority.

At the resort, Windflower—The Hill Country Spa offers group yoga, meditation and opportunities to unwind at a private pool or large covered back porch overlooking 300 acres of Texas Hill Country.

“Mindfulness and its impact on meetings is something that’s just beginning to take hold in the meetings and events industry, but it’s a focus worth exploring,” says Jeff Donahoe, director of sales and marketing at Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa. “Health and wellness is more than just a meeting trend and mindfulness is part of that. Creating an environment where attendees can focus and engage makes meetings more productive.”
