DeSoto County is the best of both worlds: a private meeting place where you can focus on business, mere minutes from an international airport and every diversion imaginable. Whether your gathering demands executive-level amenities or fun-filled activities, DeSoto County meets your needs.
No matter what size gathering you plan, DeSoto County is accommodating. The impressive LANDERS Center (formerly DeSoto Civic Center) handles groups up to 10,000 strong. Featuring a convention center, theater, and sports and entertainment arena, it provides the space and flexibility you need for trade shows and large gatherings.
In addition to national hotel brands offering meeting space, DeSoto County has unique experiences like Whispering Woods Hotel & Conference with its 35,000 square feet of meeting space and 181 guest rooms, or you can meet in the quiet ambiance of a classic country inn at Bonne Terre Inn & Cafe, and other unexpected venues.
