Encompassing the western region of Montana, Glacier Country is a natural beauty where inspiration, new ideas and authentic experiences are found among mesmerizing peaks, glistening waters and more than 75 charming small-town communities brimming with genuine western hospitality. From a riverside lodge, to a renovated barn or luxury guest ranch, to a contemporary urban space in the heart of one of its cities, beautiful and distinct lodging properties and meeting places abound alongside modern offerings, unexpected culinary experiences and the latest in technology. With Glacier National Park as the backdrop, the larger cities of Kalispell and Missoula offer meeting options—both large and small—as endless as their big blue sky. You’ll find hands-on assistance with meeting planning, unparalleled team-building activities and amazing food, plus 30 breweries, nine distilleries, nine wineries and six cideries. Montana’s wide-open spaces and unique offerings offer a chance to refresh and renew.
Between Glacier National Park and Flathead Lake—the largest freshwater lake in the West—Kalispell is the hub of Montana’s Flathead Valley. Kalispell combines affordable variety, modern amenities and quality meeting facilities with easy access to vast unspoiled nature. Discover a variety of venue options—including 1,800 guest rooms and 56,000 square feet of meeting space—as well as activities like scenic boat cruises, hiking and biking on expansive trail systems, horseback trail rides, brewery tours and a historic downtown full of personality, plus museums, galleries, boutiques and culinary hot spots.
In Missoula, ideas are inspired by nature and nurtured by unexpected sophistication. Hospitality, technology and amenities are top notch here. Groups gather to experience a town pulsating with arts, culture, food, drink, rich roots and friendly locals, not to mention three rivers and seven wilderness areas. Montana’s “Garden City” is a world-class meeting place for corporate events, retreats, conferences and conventions.
