The desert city experiences 330 sunny days each year, meaning you can count on good weather for your attendees.

Scottsdale is teeming with activities to do and culture to experience, so no matter what your group enjoys doing, we're sure they will love experiencing the jewel of the Sonoran Desert.

Scottsdale meeting planning in a new way

Our experts at Pure Local Services have been in the destination management business for decades. That means we know all the ins and outs of meeting planning — and we know it's usually a lot more complicated than it should be. That's why we developed Request Builder.

Request Builder is our one-of-a-kind planning tool developed from years of experience and our vast database of local knowledge. It makes meeting planning more simple and less stressful by giving you the freedom to explore destinations, activities, venues and other local options on your own time and with no commitment. We mean it; you aren't even asked for an email address until after you've taken as much time as you like exploring the options. It's the game-changing destination management tool the world has been waiting for.

To use Request Builder to discover Scottsdale options, simply select Scottsdale as the destination you're interested in, and browse local options. You can explore our curated lists of activities, venues and dining options to see what is available in the area and what would match up with your group's goals and budget. Add the options you're interested in to your request, and then click Submit. From there, we'll build a proposal based on your choices and we can get the ball rolling. This takes the pressure off your decision-making and gives you a proposal that's tailored specifically to you — all without the unnecessary hours on phone calls. Win-win, right?

Local expertise for Scottsdale corporate events

Besides Request Builder, another hallmark of Pure Local Services is our vetted local partnerships. We believe authentic local experiences are so important that we put it in our name. We've spent decades curating relationship with local vendors so our clients can get a genuine taste of their chosen destination from a provider you know you can trust. Plus, we've been able to negotiate partner discounts and exclusive access to amazing things in Scottsdale only the locals know about.

When you partner with Pure Local, you're not only signing up for an authentic, engaging corporate event. You're also supporting local economies and helping places like Scottsdale continue to thrive. Using local partners is a more sustainable approach to meeting planning and goes a lot further than just recycling a few bottles or remembering to turn off the lights.

If sustainability is a value for you like it is for us, we have good news. We've found that our clients are more satisfied with their events when their group takes an active role in sustainability efforts. Protecting our destinations isn't only responsible; it's enjoyable. Yet another win-win.

We have plenty of options to get your group involved in supporting the community you visit. You can donate a portion of proceeds from your program to a charity of your choice (and get some free swag while you're at it!), join a local sustainability effort like planting trees or packing lunchboxes, or schedule a speaker to teach your group about issues surrounding Scottsdale. No matter your flavor of service, we can make it happen — and make sure it's enjoyable.

Your Scottsdale destination management company

Scottsdale is a sprawling desert oasis and we know all the don't-miss spots as well as the you-would-have-missed hidden gems. As the #1 Best City to Retire in America , Scottsdale is popular for good reason. The weather is inviting, the activities are diverse and the culture is accessible. No matter the size of your group or theme of your event, Scottsdale can accommodate — and Pure Local can make sure it all comes together.

Corporate Activities in Scottsdale

When your group arrives in sunny Scottsdale, it's a good idea to introduce them to the destination. There are plenty of tours of the city on offer, but we like to suggest one that's a little more exciting than a guided walkabout. If you're ready to hit the ground running, there are plenty of exciting adventure tours that introduces you to Scottsdale in exciting ways. You could try a guided kayak or raft tour to make a literal splash on your itinerary. Or, tone it down a little bit with an e-bike or hiking/yoga tour that keeps your group active, but with a little less heart pounding. For a little more of a niche experience, try a desert Jeep tour or a Scottsdale foodie tour to get to know some of the city's most beautiful and delicious hotspots.

With all that sunshine, it's basically required you enjoy some outdoor activities. Known as “The World's Finest Golf Destination,” Scottsdale is basically a mecca for golfers — so make sure you plan some time to enjoy the area's 200+ courses. You can also take your group on a hike or mountain bike ride in the beautiful Sonoran Desert (there are 225+ miles of trails in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve alone!) or try stand-up paddleboarding or surrounded by Scottsdale's iconic red rock. If you're feeling extra adventurous, book an ATV experience or Hummer adventure in the desert.

Scottsdale is also known for its impressive arts and culture. Visit the area's galleries and outdoor exhibits and even try some hands-on art with group classes like candle-making. Schedule in some relaxation at one of 50+ resort and day spas in the area. And, be sure to enjoy some retail therapy in Scottsdale's upscale shops and boutiques, then round out the evening with a baseball game for some unforgettable networking.

No matter what your group is interested in, Pure Local knows the best place to find it and how to arrange it so you have an unforgettable experience.

Corporate event venues for all groups

Scottsdale has quite the range of venues for corporate events. Whether you're hosting a small happy hour, a grand reception, or a get-down-to-business meeting, Pure Local knows the best locations in Scottsdale for your event. From show-stopping architecture to incredible views to hidden gems like no other, we'll find the perfect venue for your group's events.

If you want to throw an event worthy of making history, then an iconic Scottsdale museum might just be fitting as your venue. Collections such as those at the Phoenix Art Museum (20,000 works of art by both local and international artists) or the Musical Instrument Museum (over 8,000 instruments from across the world on display) are sure to wow your guests and provide an upscale backdrop for your event. You can also really lean into the local culture by hosting an event at the Heard Museum, which collaborates with American Indian artists and communities to offer an authentic view of the Southwest. For something a little surprising, you could choose to host your event at local aquarium to give your guests an underwater adventure in contrast to the desert activities.

Another authentically Scottsdale venue choice is an outdoor location where your group can enjoy the crisp desert air and beautiful scenery. Bring your group to a working horseback riding stable and ranch with sprawling views and Western charm for an event they couldn't possibly forget. Or, host a beautiful event at a curated desert garden where your guests can experience the Sonoran Desert's finest beauty close-up. For an expansive western indoor/outdoor space, we'll take you to The Barn, where your guests will be wowed by the spacious property and expansive views.

If you decide to go a more modern and unique route for your event venue, you have to check out our favorite car club. Filled with gorgeous luxury cars, this sleek and sophisticated space is truly a one-of-a-kind venue for unforgettable events. Along those lines, our favorite racing museum also offers a beautiful, unique event space with iconic race-winning cars and a modern patio for outdoor gathering. Or, you can choose an upscale venue right in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale with flexible spaces and long hours.

Whatever your style, you can explore plenty of options to pique your interest using Request Builder. With our process, you can learn more about each venue and see why we've loved hosting events there in the past. We can't wait to see where you choose to host — and we can guarantee it will be incredible.
