5 Reasons to Host Your Team Building Event at L’Ambroisie

Team building initiatives in the workplace are a great way to enhance an organization’s collaborative environment. From inspiring creativity and innovation to building deeper connections between employees and boosting productivity, team building plays an essential role in a company’s overall success.

If you’re looking for the perfect location to host your company’s team building event in Montreal, consider L’Ambroisie. Our meeting venue offers many advantages, especially when it comes to corporate events.

Discover why you should pick L’Ambroisie for your next team building event below.

1. Offsite Meeting Venue

There are many benefits to holding an offsite meeting venue. Removing your employees from their usual work environment will help increase their focus on the initiative or activity you’re hosting. They will be less tempted to check emails or take calls, which means distractions will be significantly reduced.

An offsite team building activity will also be more exciting for your employees. This enhanced experience will create a positive environment and motivate your troops. They will remember this unique experience forever and their overall satisfaction could increase employee retention.

2. L’Ambroisie Location Advantages

You don’t have to seclude yourself in a hotel located hours away to experience the benefits of an offsite meeting venue. By remaining in Montreal, you not only save on time, but accommodation and transportation costs too. Montreal is a vibrant city that already offers a wide selection of activities that you and your team can enjoy.

L’Ambroisie is a great choice for your offsite team building event because it offers the best of both worlds. Although it’s only 10 minutes from downtown, it feels like you’re miles away from the city. Featuring beautiful outdoor gardens and terraces, acres of parkland, including walk and bike paths, and waterfront views, our corporate event venue truly is ideal.

Château Saint-Ambroise, the historic building that houses L’Ambroisie, sits on the banks of the Lachine Canal. This beautiful canal is the perfect setting for a wide range of summer and winter activities. It is also easily accessible by public transit and has up to 500 paid parking spaces available for you and your organization.
