Guidelines

  • The Lee County Meetings Incentive Grant Program was created by the Visitor & Convention Bureau (VCB) to generate a positive economic impact for the destination post-COVID through increased occupancy with small to mid-sized group meeting business. Offer does not apply to existing contracts, meetings moved/rebooked due to cancellation, or to social groups (weddings, reunions, or other social events), sporting events or group tours.
  • The meeting must take place / actualize by September 30, 2024.
  • To qualify for the grant, the group must book a minimum of 10 rooms on peak night and a minimum of 50 total room nights.
  • The VCB will disperse the grant payment to the organization / business / association - not the meeting planner or hotel.
  • This is a one-time incentive (unless multiple year contracts are signed simultaneously) and cannot be combined with other VCB incentives.
  • The Lee County VCB reserves the right to end the incentive program at any time.
