The Beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel
The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel

For years, we have prided ourselves in being "a natural place to gather". Studies have proven that nature sparks new ideas and inspiration, ideal for any meeting. Amid the pandemic, outdoor venues have become a popular option for meeting planners as wide-open spaces are conducive to social distancing and can appeal to attendees wary of meeting in enclosed spaces.

I would like to invite you to watch the Meetings Today's webinar "Natural Settings Improve Meetings Performance".  In early September, Janice Litvin spoke about the effect of natural light and surroundings on performance and the science behind it. Following Janice, I had the honor to provide a destination overview including: outdoor physical activities, outdoor social activities & team building, volunteering & CSR opportunities along with Q & A.

Our natural paradise awaits and we look forward to help plan your next meeting!

Sunny Regards,
