Nantucket’s living history and charm, combined with its seclusion and beauty is the ideal environment for successful meetings. Groups of all kinds have traveled to Nantucket to surround themselves in this unique ambiance, one that invites and nurtures clarity of thought and creativity.
While the alluring ocean breezes and gentle seaside climate encourage productivity and renewed sense of focus for the individuals or group, an array of extraordinary facilities, activities, lodging and dining establishments provide the finest of service for your business meeting.
Professional meeting assistance and support services go hand-in-hand with the colonial elegance of 18th century architecture, unspoiled sea and dunescapes, cobblestoned streets and a dedication to exceptional customer service. Nantucket’s meeting rooms are well-equipped and offer the finest in AV equipment, catering and services.
Whether your meeting consists of a few or many participants, their every need can be graciously accommodated. For smaller groups, a number of intimate inns and bed and breakfasts provide an elegant and relaxed setting, our hotels and function rooms can accommodate larger groups. With meetings, as with most things on Nantucket, smaller tends to be better! If you choose to take a "no-frills" approach to your small meeting, the Chamber of Commerce has a lovely, centrally-located conference room which can be rented for very reasonable rates.
Although Nantucket is a world apart from many other destinations in its charms and services, it lies within easy reach. The island is home to a full-service airport with direct service from many major cities in the Northeast.
For the more tradition-oriented traveler, ferry service runs out of Hyannis, MA year round including one-hour high speed ferries. Once on Nantucket, transportation is easy. The island is a classic walking destination: the historic downtown where many inns and shops are located is easier to transverse by foot than automobile. An extensive system of bicycle paths crisscross Nantucket and the Nantucket Regional Transit Authority (NRTA) operates a seasonal public shuttle bus (The Wave) to all ends of the island. Charter vans and buses are also available.
The enchantment of Nantucket is sure to complement and stimulate your own high standards of professional elegance. We welcome planners in search of meeting venues and can assist in planning a function that will provide you and your associates with a unique and memorable experience.
