Bermuda Meeting Planning Overview

A beautiful island boasting fantastic weather, a dazzling landscape and thriving cultural pride, Bermuda is nothing short of a meeting and vacation paradise. While known for its laid-back and relaxed approach to life, Bermuda enjoys a healthy economy and can really get down to business. Meeting participants from around the world come to Bermuda to make the most of its spectacular meeting venues while drawing inspiration and much-needed down time away from fast-paced mainland life.

Just a short two-hour flight from the U.S. East Coast, Bermuda is only 650 miles east of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, making travel to this island oasis highly convenient from the States. Travelers touch down at L.F. Wade International Airport, located just 10 miles east of Hamilton, Bermuda's capital city. L.F. Wade International offers service to and from the United States, Europe and Canada with several non-stop flights to major destinations.

Once in Bermuda, the government-run bus and ferry system provides daily service throughout the island, but the environmentally-conscious island nation does not allow rental cars. Instead, visitors can find taxis at the airport, outside of major hotels, and throughout the city of Hamilton and town of St. George, or can book from among the many charter transportation hubs.

Upon arrival in Bermuda, guests find no shortage of ways to get around. The government-run bus and ferry system provides daily service throughout the island, and visitors can find taxis at the airport, outside of major hotels, and throughout the City of Hamilton and Town of St. George, or they can book transportation from among the many charter shuttles.

Business travelers will find that meetings in Bermuda are anything but buttoned-up. Offering the most flexible meeting space in the country, The Fairmont Southampton, perched high above pristine pink sand beaches, boasts several indoor and outdoor venues. The 593-guest-room resort is home to a 15,000-square-foot beach club that can accommodate up to 1,500 people, as well as 14 indoor meeting rooms and a 12,000-square-foot ballroom. Meanwhile, just across the bay from The Fairmont Southampton, The Fairmont Hamilton Princess's iconic pink building offers 19,000 square feet of meeting space in its ballroom and 15 meeting rooms.

To add an island twist to events, Bermuda offers a wide variety stimulating venues. Mix and mingle in the glow of a 140,000-gallon replica of the island's coral reef at the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo, which offers reception spaces for up to 150 people. Meanwhile, the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute has the facilities to accommodate events of all kinds. Host a luncheon for 300 people at its waterfront La Coquille restaurant, a lecture series at its 148-seat Tradewinds Auditorium, or a 30-person meeting at its Royal Caribbean Room.

An offshore financial center, Bermuda's economy centers heavily on international business. In fact, the Bermuda Stock Exchange is the world's largest fully electronic offshore securities market. Tourism also plays a key role in Bermuda, as the island attracts over half a million visitors every year.

About Bermuda / Additional Info

Bermuda's stellar reputation is due to its unique island flavor, natural beauty, cultural sites and family-friendly activities. With a total area of just 21 square miles and a maximum width of 1.75 miles, Bermuda actually consists of about 180 islands and inlets that together resemble a fishhook. The islands are linked by bridges and divided into nine parishes, from the bustling Pembroke Parish, home of the island's capital Hamilton, to the serene Devonshire Parish, marked by lush, rolling hills and marshes.

What Bermuda lacks in size it makes up for in spectacular attractions and scenery. Whether sunning on its unique pink beaches or hitting the links at one of its seven championship golf courses, you'll find that the country's stunning landscape is home to a number of popular activities. Saddle up for a horseback ride at South Shore Park. Take a diving or snorkeling expedition among the more than 400 historic wrecks that have surrounded the islands for centuries, such as the nearly 500-foot Spanish luxury liner Cristobal Colon. Visit the 36-acre Bermuda Botanical Gardens, home to a wealth of native flora. Or, explore the islands from 120 feet below ground at the Crystal Caves, where stalactites and stalagmites glitter and gleam from years of nature's polishing.

Though Bermuda's natural surroundings can easily be the star of the show, the country's rich cultural scene is also well worth exploring. Embark on a tour of Bermuda's more than 785 historic homes, which range from Georgian-style Verdmont House Museum to the plantation-style Springfield building complex. See antique coins and Bermuda silver at the Bermuda Historical Society Museum, or over 1,200 pieces of Bermuda-inspired art at the Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art. Guests can even take some of the island home at the Bermuda Craft Market, where over 60 local artists sell ceramics, jewelry, glassware and more.

Bermudian culture is also celebrated at its numerous eateries. From roadside cafes to chic waterside restaurants, the island's traditional establishments offer diners favorites including Hoppin' John (peas and rice), Peas and Plenty (black-eyed peas with onions, salt pork and rice) and the popular Bermuda Fish Chowder. Thanks to its mid-ocean location, Bermuda diners can also enjoy fresh seafood, including angelfish, wahoo and rockfish at venues such as Black Horse Tavern, Lobster Pot and Boathouse Bar and Port O' Call. End any day in Bermuda on a high note by enjoying a cool tropical drink and some laid-back entertainment at bars such as Hammerheads Bar & Grill and the Pickled Onion.
