Where salty Gulf waters meet sugar-white sand, meeting planners will find the ideal location for their next event – Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.
Located on the Gulf of Mexico at the southern tip of Coastal Alabama, this destination is home to 32 miles of beaches, decadent dining options and a plethora of activities and attractions.
While all of those things are wonderful, you might wonder why Alabama’s beaches are a hot spot for meetings, board retreats and incentive groups. With more than 18,000 accommodation units at hotels and condos, meeting spaces that can accommodate up to 2,000 attendees, and a variety of unique venue options, the destination offers flexible options for groups looking to escape the typical meeting setup and let loose a little bit.
With the sound of waves crashing, seabirds chirping and kids laughing, your attendees are going to be itching to get out and about during their free time. Don’t make them wait until a break in the schedule. Plan an exciting networking or team-building activity to get their blood pumping and creativity flowing. From charter fishing trips and sunset sails to sandcastle building and gumbo cooking classes, the area has plenty of options, both by land and by sea, for meeting attendees to not only network and bond but to act like a kid again and have some fun!
Encourage attendees to bring their family along for the ride. Alabama’s beaches boast a well-established reputation for being family-friendly and offering impeccable Southern hospitality. Spouses and children will have plenty to keep them busy including playing in the sand, kayaking along the waterways and biking down the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail.
We recognize that meetings are an investment, which is why our sales team is here to help! Our services are complimentary and include matching your team with the ideal property, recommending activities and attractions as well as marketing and promotional opportunities. Planners considering laid-back coastal communities should put Alabama’s beaches on their radar. To learn more about how you can bring your board room to the beach, visit GSOBMeetings.com.
