We’ve got 32 (miles of) reasons to bring the boardroom to the beach in 2018. Rather than focusing on Alabama’s white-sand beaches, let’s talk logistics with these three hot topics for breaking to the beach on your next destination meeting.
1. Full-service CVB. The sales team at Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Tourism is your one-stop shop for planning a knock-your-socks-off event in 2018. With decades of combined industry and area knowledge, you’re in good hands with our meeting professionals. Our sales team offers sourcing and even help with marketing your event.
2. Team-building. Have you polled your potential attendees lately? Which do you think they’re more interested in: a conference-room team-building exercise or an afternoon sail aboard a 53-foot catamaran where they work together to man the sails and cruise the boat? Or how about a morning at a Gulf Shores golf course, playing nine holes and getting to know each other’s swings? There are plenty of interesting group opportunities in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Take a break from the boring and keep everyone’s energy up and spirits peeked with fun outdoor activities.
3. The best of beach lodging. Need a room? You have options for your attendees. You’ll find a great selection of beachfront hotels bearing the names of some of your favorite hoteliers, including the newly renovated Island House Hotel by DoubleTree by Hilton, Best Western, Hampton Inn & Suites, Hilton Garden Inn, Holiday Inn Express and more. The Perdido Beach Resort also offers beach lodging and full-service conference facilities. Not much can beat a beach balcony and a view after a day of meetings. You’ll also have your pick of full-service resorts featuring onsite dining. Or choose from the numerous Orange Beach condos and Gulf Shores beach houses that are great options for destination meetings that span several days.
