Florida Meeting & Event Planning City Guide

Florida meeting and event planning destinations are perceived as either popular beaches or amidst world-famous theme parks like Disney World, Universal Studios, and SeaWorld. But that doesn’t do justice to the Sunshine State’s diversity, which range from chic hotels on South Beach, Colonial-style stately hotels in Tallahassee, a boutique lodge in Key West and more Florida meeting and event planning programs should contain light Florida adventure, such as swamp tours, hot-air balloons and dolphin swims.

Orlando, FL

As the #1 meetings destination in the country, Orlando offers a world of possibilities for one-of-a-kind events. From a top-rated convention center, low-cost accessibility and wide variety of meeting hotels to world-class entertainment, Orlando is an exciting gateway city for meetings of all sizes.
