Why Choose Our Destination?
Welcome to Southwest Florida's newest meetings destination. Located just off Interstate 75 and less than an hour from two international airports (35 minutes from Southwest Florida International to downtown Punta Gorda), Charlotte Harbor & the Gulf Islands provides a unique setting for a memorable meeting or conference. The area features diverse venues for nearly any event. Our destination's signature meeting venue is the Charlotte Harbor Event & Conference Center, which is professionally managed by SMG. This 44,000 square foot multi-purpose facility has exceeded expectations in its first two years of operation successfully hosting a variety of functions including meetings, conferences, trade shows, and sporting events. In addition, both Palm Island Resort and the Boca Grande Club provide an exclusive beachfront resort atmosphere, ideal for board retreats and incentive travel. Accommodation choices in the area range from full and limited service hotels in Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte to beachside resorts and condos in the Englewood-Cape Haze area. If your function requires off site activities or reception venues, there are many to choose from in the Charlotte Harbor area including harbor cruises, swamp buggy tours, an array of golf courses, Muscle Car City Museum, Fishermen's Village, and Charlotte Sports Park, spring training home of the Tampa Bay Rays. Let the Charlotte Harbor VCB be your one stop shop for any information or recommendations regarding the Charlotte Harbor area. Our hospitality and enthusiasm is sure to create a memorable experience for all your attendees.
