Experience AZ

Valley sees rise of nontraditional event venues

Business culture is becoming less formal, and so are many of the meetings that support business goals. Participants are now looking for meetings to be more of an experience than just ballroom buffets and cocktail receptions in the expo hall.  Add a rise in venue marketplaces designed to make it easier to find nontraditional event venues for group events, and you have the underpinnings of a rapidly growing trend toward taking meetings out of hotels and convention centers and into a destination’s more unique venues.

Venues of North Scottsdale, Arizona’s premier event production provider and exclusive venue rental agency, recently announced the addition of a 10,000 square foot airport hangar to its already expansive offering of unique venues for hosting private or corporate events. Located within the Scottsdale Airpark, the Jetset hangar features 25-foot ceilings, accommodations for up to 350+ people, and over $100,000 in sound, audio, lighting and furnishings, providing a dramatic backdrop to any experiential event.

The acquisition of the exclusive rental agreement for this massive venue supports the mission of Venues of North Scottsdale to provide meeting planners access to nontraditional meeting space and nontraditional event venues. 

“The options and potential for creating an experiential event like no other are practically limitless,” says Karen May, Founder and CEO of Venues of North Scottsdale.   “I’m excited to provide clients with venue options that would otherwise be unavailable to the event planning community.”

The addition of the Jetset hangar complements the company’s existing portfolio of unique venues such as the multiple privately owned airport hangars at Scottsdale and Mesa Gateway Airport, some of which include luxury club lounges, a full view chef’s kitchen, an outdoor pool, a second story deck facing the runway, and even private function space directly on the airport tarmac. This variety of venues enables Venues of North Scottsdale to accommodate groups from 200 to 1500 guests in locations that provide a blank canvas for full event customization amongst naturally beautiful and captivating settings.
