Local Living: Thanks to These Partners!

Louise Happy Hour

If you’ve been following along to all the Megaphone Summit, then you probably know that #Megaphone19 is all about experiences, not things. This is an idea we’ve kept in mind as we’ve continued to plan for this year’s conference.

For the first time in 2019, Megaphone Summit will be hosted in downtown Bentonville with an “unconventional convention” concept designed to showcase northwest Arkansas, a thriving arts, food and tourism destination.

We couldn’t have done it alone. We’d like to give a huge shoutout to our local Bentonville partners for helping bring our vision to life and showcase the beauty and culture of Bentonville. Let’s introduce you to them below. 👇

On day one, our team will be there to greet you at the beautiful 21c Museum Hotel in downtown Bentonville. Located right off the square, 21c offers a boutique hotel, contemporary art museum and unique culinary experience all in one. 21c will serve as the home away from home for attendees and allow for various opportunities to network during happy hour at The Hive's bar and lounge or wind down with friends in the hospitality suite.

But wait…the exploration of Bentonville’s culture doesn’t stop at 21c. Located just a hop and a skip away from 21c, attendees will be transported to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art where they will enjoy an enchanted evening in Crystal Bridges’ Grand Ballroom for the opening launch party. Guests will also get the opportunity to explore the exhibits and take in the overall beauty of Crystal Bridges.

And you adventurers, don’t worry…our partners at Visit Bentonville have you covered. There will be plenty of downtime for you to take in the town on your own (or with a new friend). Visit Bentonville will join us on-site at the Record to answer any questions you may have and to provide you with all the resources and insight that you may need to take on the town like a true local.

As you can see, there is so much to offer in Bentonville and while Team Soapbox is a massive fan of the area…you can usually see team members out (potentially on a non-obvious 😉 teal Soapbox branded bike) enjoying lunch at a local eatery, taking a meeting at a local coffee shop or enjoying #WineWednesday at our favorite local wine bar…we couldn’t showcase it all without the help of these incredible partners.
