It’s a Good Day to Meet in Fort Myers
A beautiful setting inspires innovation and productivity in Fort Myers.
Sunny Fort Myers and its surrounding neighborhoods, islands, and beaches are just minutes from Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) and within a short drive from Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, and Orlando. With five large conference resorts, expansive waterfront properties, boutique hotels, open-air venues, and every style of dining under the sun, it’s easy to plan your next group event right here.
Our points of contact on the ground can help secure just the right space and accommodations. Sun-warmed beaches and Gulf views are the perfect backdrop for intimate and mid-sized events with all the amenities available to you. There are more than 13,000 hotel rooms throughout the region, and the opening of the new Luminary Hotel & Co. and Caloosa Sound Convention Center in downtown Fort Myers have expanded the total meeting capacity in our area to 290,000 square feet. Business meets relaxation at Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Spa and Resort, with more than 75,000 square feet of flexible meeting space and family-friendly amenities set on 26 tropical acres. In Marina Village, Westin Cape Coral offers 50,000 square feet of both indoor and outdoor meeting spaces located in an elegant marina environment.
Marriott Sanibel Harbour Resort & Spa is set on the 85-acre peninsula of Punta Rassa on San Carlos Bay, while South Seas Island Resort is surrounded by a 330-acre nature preserve with 2.5 miles of beautiful white-sand beaches. Sizable vacation rentals on the beach or along a canal are also a great option for groups to find a secluded space all their own.
Break out of the routine and plan team-building activities, after-work events, and other social gatherings, elevating each workday to be even more inspirational and memorable.
Partner up or go solo to paddle along the Great Calusa Blueway paddling trail, a 190-mile route that meanders through the Caloosahatchee River and its tributaries with the waters of Estero Bay, Pine Island Sound and Matlacha Pass.
A day out on a boat is also an idyllic way to build connections while having fun under the sun. Set out on a fishing charter where competition heats up to bring back the biggest catch. Sunset is the perfect time of day to go out on a leisurely cruise, accompanied by great food, enjoyable drinks and good company.
There are also plenty of creative places to boost productivity. Meet on the greens with a variety of golf courses to choose from all year round. Book a special event at a craft brewery or local distillery, where the Florida spirit is literally captured in a bottle. The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel also has a plethora of cultural spaces where private events are just the right fit, including The Edison and Ford Winter Estates and the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center.
