On Florida’s Paradise Coast of Naples, Marco Island and the Everglades, pristine natural beauty blends with life’s finest luxuries, providing a meeting location unlike any other.
The area is home to some of the best meeting accommodations in the world – in fact, five area properties made the prestigious list of Top 150 Resorts in the Mainland U.S. by Conde Nast Traveler Reader’s Choice Awards 2011: #12 La Playa Beach & Golf Resort, Naples; #30 The Ritz-Carlton, Naples; #31 The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples; #41 Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort, Golf Club & Spa, Marco Island; and #130 Marco Beach Ocean Resort, Marco Island. Many of these and other Paradise Coast properties offer world-class spas and golf courses – a favorite for groups looking to recharge and reconnect.
The Paradise Coast’s off-site venues are equally impressive, from a safari under the stars at NGALA Private Reserve, to a lush, subtropical Naples Botanical Garden reception, to a sunset cruise aboard the Naples Princess. Groups can enjoy after-hours fun on Naples beach – a Top 25 Beach in the U.S. by TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice 2011 and U.S. News & World Report’s #2 Florida beach. Other one-of-a-kind experiences include Everglades nature adventures, dining and shopping in sophisticated downtown Naples and exploring one of Florida’s most vibrant art scenes.
“People tend to overuse the word unique but our destination is truly different with a special blend of culture, sophistication and tropical adventure,” says Jack Wert, executive director for the Naples, Marco Island, Everglades Convention & Visitors Bureau. “We have a very high rate of repeat groups because each time they come, they discover entirely new aspects of our area their attendees can enjoy.”
Groups meeting on the Paradise Coast will also enjoy a good return on their meeting investment. A variety of unique team-building adventures are a valuable source of inspiration, motivation and fun. Meaningful donation and volunteer opportunities let groups fulfill their social responsibility objectives. You’ll also discover excellent values from May to December and other ongoing incentives and planner perks. The area’s award-winning CVB has even developed a program to help you get a great turnout. Group Attendance Push (GAP) offers free digital promotional materials and items like the Preferred Pass, which offers groups great deals during their stay on dining, shopping, spas, golf, and other attractions.
