Savvy event planners want their attendees to do more than show up, they also want them to experience something new and unique. And for attendees, the event destination forms a major part of that experience. Nowadays, the trend is to choose a unique destination that makes the event special and memorable. Rehoboth Beach – known to be the largest beach resort in Delaware – is one such unconventional destination.
Rehoboth Beach is the getaway of choice for beach goers from Washington, DC, as well as visitors from Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. The city is 45 minutes away from the Wicomico Regional Airport in Salisbury. The destination features a charming mile-long Boardwalk that is flanked by eclectic shops, restaurants, businesses, and family amusements. The Boardwalk is an ideal place for attendees to stroll through after their event to enjoy cool breezes and abundant seafood.
The Rehoboth Beach Convention Center is located just three blocks from the Atlantic Ocean and the Boardwalk. The handicap-friendly building features an 8,230 square feet main Convention Hall and a 1,202 square feet Conference Room, making it suitable for hosting large events. The city also has many ocean-facing hotels that have enough capacity to host mid-sized to small events. The Boardwalk Plaza hotel has oceanfront banquet rooms that feature state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment and can hold as many as 100 people. Other event venues at Rehoboth include the Hampton Inn hotel, the Bellmoor Inn & Spa, and the Breakers Hotel & Suites.
The relaxing beach side destination also offers a range of great dining venues like Victoria’s Restaurant, Jake's Seafood House and Dogfish Head Brewery. Attendees can also play a round of golf at the Kings Creek Country Club that provides a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the city, or at the Old Landing Golf Course that offers great views of the local scenery.
So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and plan your next successful event at Rehoboth Beach and create an unforgettable memory for your attendees!
