The Palm Beaches are a thriving and diverse destination with the assets and infrastructure needed to host exceptional meetings and events.
Our rich destination boasts a collection of 39 cities and towns, each one with its unique cultural offerings and natural beauty.
Known as “America’s First Resort Destination,” The Palm Beaches offer a vast array of accommodations and experiences to bring meetings and conventions to a whole new level, Between-The-Sessions.
New Space for Your Meetings and Guests
The Palm Beaches’ hotel capacity includes 18,000 guestrooms at over 200 hotels and more than 1 million square feet of meeting space to choose from.
This year’s newest projects include the AKA West Palm Beach, a 217-room upscale hotel residence in downtown West Palm Beach, and the Banyan Cay Resort & Golf — the first full-service Hyatt-branded property in Palm Beach County, which is set to open in the fall of 2022. Both are located in premier locations, within minutes of the Palm Beach County Convention Center.
A new 158-room Mandarin Oriental’s property is set to debut at the end of the year in downtown Boca Raton. This new addition to the picturesque city will include a 4,500-square-foot ballroom ideal for banqueting and meetings, as well as rooftop pools, fine dining options, a spa, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and a nearby 18-hole golf course redesigned by Jack Nicklaus.
Near the Mandarin Oriental, The Boca Raton, an iconic resort on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, will emerge from its massive renovation in the fall of 2022 with the opening of The Tower, offering 224 spacious suites, more bespoke amenities, and access to the new Harborside Pool Club, a redesigned spa, and a number of reimagined dining concepts.
Opening in early 2023, WoodSpring Suites will offer business travelers an affordable extended stay property a short drive to the Palm Beach County Convention Center, while the Hampton Inn by Hilton will offer meeting space in the heart of Delray Beach’s Pineapple Grove Arts District.
Enhanced Air and Rail Connectivity
When you organize a meeting in The Palm Beaches, you can rely on a high-speed passenger rail service that connects Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, and, soon, Boca Raton (from December 2022) and Orlando (from 2023).
Palm Beach County is easily accessible by air, too. Palm Beach International Airport is launching new connections to Montreal, Toronto, Knoxville, Minneapolis, Chicago, Akron/Canton, Charleston, Columbus, Norfolk, Detroit, Atlanta, Denver, Islip, Trenton, Los Angeles, Providence, Atlantic City, Houston, and Washington. Additionally, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and Miami International Airport (MIA) are just 30 minutes and one hour away, respectively.
