In a testament to the rising demand for face-to-face events, Northstar Meetings Group's annual Destination Southeast, held July 25-27 in Marco Island, Fla., sold out weeks in advance. The event brought together nearly 140 meeting professionals at the JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort for a chance to network in person, learn from industry experts and soak up the Florida sun.
In addition to our wonderful host property, Destination Southeast was supported by a number of generous sponsors: Naples, Marco Island & Everglades, Visit St. Pete/Clearwater, Daytona Beach Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, Explore Asheville, Goodman Speakers, Seiko Watches, Delta Air Lines, Maui Jim, Aventri Software and pc/nametag.
