Support our recovery

Meet in Fort Myers

Hurricane Ian has had far-reaching effects on our islands, beaches and neighborhoods. While the road to recovery will be difficult, we’re confident in our strength and resilience. With your help, we’ll all experience good days again soon.

One way to help our community recover is to contribute to the Support Fort Myers Hospitality Workers fund being managed locally by the United Way and the Collaboratory. Donations made will directly support hospitality workers in need throughout our region. Another way is to hold your meeting in the Fort Myers area. Most of our largest meeting hotels and resorts are open for business. 

For meetings assistance and information, contact our Meetings & Groups Sales Team at 239-338-3500 or submit an RFP form.

For travel trade and weddings assistance or information, contact Jennifer Walla at or submit an RFP Form: Weddings RFP or Travel Trade Help Desk Request.

For Group Tour and Reunion assistance or information, contact Candice Cocco at or submit and RFP Form: Group Tour RFP or Reunion Information Request.
