Although we all miss in-person meetings and events, organizations across the globe are innovating and creating new ways to connect and foster collaboration through virtual offerings. Here in San Diego, world-renowned institutions and companies have pivoted to provide an expansive and exciting array of experiences to bring our world-famous attractions, adventures and sunshine to teams and attendees virtually. While we look forward to welcoming you back in-person, here are a few different ways to connect your attendees with San Diego experiences from the comfort of their own home. Until then, we’ll keep San Diego warm for you.
Make your next meeting, teambuilding activity or gathering a splash with the Birch Aquarium’s virtual offerings. Fans of sea life can dive head-first into animal experiences and learn more about sharks, loggerhead sea turtles, seahorses and seadragons. These intimate meet and greets give guests the opportunity to connect with and inquire about the ocean and its fascinating inhabitants with an expert educator. Take your aquarium experience to the next level and add a wine and cheese boxed lunch to your activity or treat your attendees to a commemorative underwater-themed gift.
San Diego Zoo
Get in touch with your wild side by having your attendees experience exotic animals with the San Diego Zoo’s one-of-a-kind virtual encounters. These video visits connect you face-to-face with zoo educators and their animal friends, including leopards, sloths, cheetahs, kangaroos, penguins and more. Each visit will introduce you to three different animals and their caretakers who are eager to answer questions and educate attendees about these incredible creatures.
Snake Oil Cocktail
We could all use a drink right now. Raise a glass to your attendees and shake up your new favorite drink with the mixology experts at Snake Oil Cocktail Co. This interactive experience delivers a cocktail kit straight to your door containing everything you need to make signature drinks. You will receive a link to a Zoom invite that connects your group with a virtual bartender who will start you on a path to becoming a creative mixologist. Cheers!
