So you have chosen Texas for your conference- now what? Now it’s time to give your attendees the True Texas experience they are hoping for! There is no better way to host a cowboy-themed corporate party than with a real Texas longhorn, or perhaps twenty.

San Antonio is consistently recognized as a top meeting destination because of its amazing weather, vibrant culture, and hospitality offerings. San Antonio is home to dozens of fabulous hotels and lodging, the beautiful San Antonio Riverwalk, and the breathtaking Texas Hill Country. It is the perfect spot to host your next business meeting or trade show.

A staple of Texas history and San Antonio culture is the Texas Longhorn, the Texas state large mammal. The longhorn is a breed of cattle abundant throughout Texas. What better way to pay homage to the lone star state than with a Texas longhorn at your corporate event?

Enchanted Springs Ranch is the perfect location for a corporate event. The private ranch is nestled in the Texas Hill Country and provides guests with a secluded landscape for private events, conferences, and conventions, company picnics, or team-building retreats. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city but conveniently located just a short drive from downtown San Antonio, the ranch is home to 6 acres of multiple indoor and outdoor spaces.

Texas longhorns are huge and aren’t easily moved, so go to the venue that has it all.

Enchanted Springs Ranch is the perfect location for a corporate event, private event or a team building retreat. Our favorite ranch activity is the tractor wagon ride to view a variety of exotic animals in the back forty.

Because not only is Enchanted Springs Ranch a special event venue, it is also a fully-working Texas cattle ranch. It is home to dozens of longhorn cattle of all shapes, sizes, and colors. Our staff is experienced at raising cattle and knows how special it is to bring them out for guests to interact with and learn more about.

The number one reason to host your next corporate event with a real Texas Longhorn – photo ops galore! And with the backdrop of an Old West Town, every snap is Instagram-worthy. Create a designated area for guests to snap fun pictures when planning your corporate conference or convention.

At ESR, guests can even get up close and personal with Woodrow the Texas Longhorn. The star of Enchanted Springs Ranch, Woodrow has been featured in films and photo shoots and is specially trained for human interaction and posing for photos. (We are always stocked on his favorite treats)

Talk about a grand entrance, greeting your guests with a live longhorn is going to spark excitement before they even get off of the bus. Imagine pulling up to your business event and being created by a 1,500-pound longhorn. Your attendees will love snapping their photo next to a living, breathing longhorn. If they are feeling brave, they can even grab the bull by the horns.

With all the pictures capturing the fun of your event, you’re sure to be creating FOMO or the fear of missing out. Separate your conference from the rest. While the experiences reach the masses through social media, people will notice how exciting and interactive your business event is. A unique photo opportunity is an easy, sure way to create that impressionable moment.

Branding your event has never been easier. Easily gain brand awareness by giving guests the opportunity to take a selfie with the longhorn and writing out a hashtag on a chalkboard. Or hire a professional photographer or rent a photo booth that incorporates your company logo or event name. Not only are guests getting a keepsake, but they will also talk about meeting a Texas longhorn for years to come.

The unique encounters and experiences don’t stop there. If you want to provide an interactive and engaging experience for your guests then it is time to get out of the conference room. Team building exercises don’t always need to include problem-solving or scavenger hunts. Sometimes shared experiences can foster team bonding and growth.

Provide your guests with an opportunity to explore even more of Texas history and culture. Jump on our covered tractor wagon and explore 40 acres of the Texas hill country, home to dozens of exotic wildlife and livestock. With a built-in sound system, guests can enjoy some country classics while also learning about the various animals as they ride through the private ranch acreage.
