Tips / Other

It’s been said trying to describe what Burning Man is like to someone who hasn’t been is akin to trying to describe color to someone who is blind. While everyone has a different experience in the weeklong pop-up community, here is some basic information to help you decide if you should add Burning Man to your bucket list.

 

Join a Campsite

Whether you choose to bring an RV or stay in a tent, having a campsite to call home with other friends and “burners” will vastly improve your experience. Some camps provide daily meals, alcohol and amenities for a few hundred dollars.

 

You Bike. A Lot.

Bikes are hugely important at Burning Man. It will be your main mode of transportation for the week and will help you cover the miles of land of the “Playa.” I recommend bringing an electric bike, padded bike seat, bright wheel and bike lights for safety at night, and a bike lock.

 

You’re Awake Sunset to Sunrise

Your sleep schedule will be turned entirely upside down. While you can find people out and about at every hour of the day and night, most people prefer to sleep while the temperature is hot during the day and start exploring the Playa at sundown. Nighttime is when the community really comes to life! Art cars, art installations, pop-up activities and dance parties are all lit with bright neon lights.

 

It’s an Adventure

Prepare to enter an explosion of neon, have absolutely no idea what day or time it is, get lost in a dust storm, be overwhelmed by the creativity of people all around you, bike for longer than you thought humanly possible and quite possibly have your faith in humanity restored.

Dream Hollywood Hotel

The urban chic hotel is the perfect medium between Hollywood hip and corporate cool. Dream Hollywood welcomes you upon arrival with an open glass entryway, showcasing a structured, organically lush lobby atmosphere filled with modern art and a lobby lounge bar that transforms for a morning cup of coffee or a post-work cocktail. Upon check-in with the extremely helpful and courteous staff, I made my way to the elevators and up to my room, enjoying the artwork on the way.

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
