Meet & Unwind: Not Your Average Breakout Session

The most effective meeting attendees are those who are calm and at ease so that they can tap into their creativity and make decisions.

To make this happen, you need LOCATION and that would be Denver, Colorado. Denver is located at the base of the beautiful Rocky Mountains and enjoys over 300 days of sunshine each year. Denver is easily accessible from all parts of the country, and The Wall Street Journal just awarded Denver International Airport (DIA) as the best airport in the U.S.

Just as important as location, your event venue also helps in setting a welcoming atmosphere.

Hilton Denver City Center is situated in the heart of downtown Denver, just three blocks from the Colorado Convention Center and within walking distance to hundreds of the city’s top restaurants and attractions.  The hotel features recently-renovated, mountain-modern rooms, healthy menu & breakout options, a 24-hour gym & on-site Starbucks. The hotel features more than 50,000 sq. ft. of sophisticated and flexible event spaces for board meetings, non-profit luncheons, weddings or lavish receptions, including a 15,000 square foot outdoor plaza, a dedicated pre-function/registration area and three ballrooms of varying sizes.

Hilton Denver City Center’s Meet with a Purpose Program has collaborated with some amazing partners to offer innovative meeting and event breakout sessions. The offerings include – Puppy Playtime Breakout Sessions, Yoga & Yogurt and Meditative Moments.

We know what people want……PUPPIES!!!


The Puppy Playtime Breakout Sessions is an innovative meeting and event breakout session featuring adoptable dogs and puppies in partnership with the Denver Animal Shelter. This unique and relaxing activity is great at reducing stress and increasing attendee energy while supporting the local animal shelter.

A variety of food and beverage offerings are included in the Playtime breakouts and can last from 15 minutes to one hour.  In addition, all the options can be completely customized to the group’s specific needs.

A minimum, tax-deductible donation of $500 to the Denver Animal Shelter, a certified 501-C3 is required, in addition to per person pricing for food, beverage and meeting space.




Contact the team at the Hilton Denver City Center for more information on planning your next meeting and incentive.  They will be able to help incorporate one of these amazing breakout sessions; Puppy Playtime Breakout Sessions, Yoga & Yogurt, or Meditative Moment to your event.
