The Palm Beaches is a vibrant destination for innovative and meaningful meetings and events. Strong relationships with local hotels, restaurants and attractions allow for custom-created experiences that not only inspire creativity and collaboration, but also accommodate every taste and budget. With resorts, landmarks and institutions that have earned the destination the designation of Florida’s Cultural Capital®, its accessibility from three major airports, as well as high-speed rail, and two distinct meetings districts to choose from, The Palm Beaches makes hosting your next meeting a breeze.
Convention, Arts and Entertainment District
Located in the heart of West Palm Beach, the 350,000-square-foot Palm Beach County Convention Center and its attached 400-room Hilton West Palm Beach hotel set the stage for meetings in this vibrant downtown community. With floor-to-ceiling windows inviting natural light into the expansive lobby spaces, the center offers a perfect complement to meetings aimed at fostering collaboration, networking, and lasting connections.
The surrounding Convention, Arts and Entertainment District is a hotspot of culture and nightlife, showcasing over 1,200 guestrooms within a short walk of the Center. Steps — or a quick, free trolley ride — away, Clematis Street and Rosemary Square await. Interactive, eye-catching public art gives attendees a taste of local culture, and restaurants owned by world-renowned chefs offer unique culinary experiences to delight even the most seasoned traveler.
Luxury and history come together at the Boca Raton Resort & Club, and with 150,000+ sq. ft. of meeting space at the Mizner Center, a variety of waterfront event options, world-class culinary offerings, and the unmatched service of a Waldorf Astoria Resort, meetings here don’t just reach your standards – they exceed them.
This iconic resort is the center of “The Bocawide”— the Boca Raton Citywide Collection—offering more than 1,500 guestrooms in an idyllic downtown setting. Nearby Mizner Park is home to an abundance of options for dining and shopping, plus an outdoor amphitheater and the colorful Boca Raton Museum of Art — all easily accessible by foot or the city’s own free-ride service.
In the Pipeline
As the destination continues to evolve and grow, exciting new hotel developments will offer more guestrooms and meeting space options for groups of every size. The Amrit Ocean Resort opens on Singer Island this spring, along with The White Elephant in Palm Beach. In 2021, the 158-room Mandarin Oriental will open in downtown Boca Raton with a 4,500-square-foot ballroom and a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course.
More Than Palms and Beaches
Meeting attendees will revel in the destination’s rich history and natural beauty, while having opportunities to connect with the nation’s top leaders in various fields, such as agriculture, healthcare, telecommunications, and environmental services; take advantage of the 200+ cultural institutions; and participate in customized Corporate Social responsibility programs.
