These hotels serve various amenities and facilities that give a perfect opportunity to conduct group and board meetings, social functions, association gatherings, conferences and so on.  In addition to this, some of the places that are not necessarily hotels have this service as well, namely the parks, wildlife reserves and some of the theatre houses in town. There is no shortage of places to choose from which is always good news to all event coordinators, organizers and corporate planners out there.

Different hotels from well-reputed chains have done extensive renovation that costs hundreds of millions of dollars to offer their guests high quality and competitive facilities for conference and meeting sessions alone.  Most of these hotels can be found in prime locations in Marco Island where even the pickiest of organizers are wowed by the stunning changes done in the recent couple of years. The picturesque and newly expanded meeting facilities are a manifestation of how the industry thrives in this side of the country. These renovations are sure to give a good and lasting impression to all those who attend whatever event you may be planning.

Artis – Naples is for just right for your guests who have more refined and elevated taste. This one’s not a hotel but a museum. It has a conference room that can hold from as little as 30 people to as grand as 1,500. The museum boasts a fine array of 15 galleries all filled with various awe-inspiring artworks from seasoned artists both from the local and international scene.

However, if you are gearing for the more off-site meeting location, a bit of break from the sometimes suffocating walls of a typical conference room, then this cozy yet bustling region definitely has something for you too. For a more outdoorsy feel, try the Naples Botanical Garden. This 170 acre beauty promises a more relaxed feel as it brings everyone closer to nature. With its green and luscious flowers to the man-made ponds and mini-falls, all help ease that tension that often comes with your standard corporate meeting.

If your guests wouldn’t mind being close to animals, then try the Naples Zoo. The zoo offers accommodations for a group as large as 1,000. The place can host private dinners, galas and even wedding receptions. Here you can treat your guests with a rainforest atmosphere, with different species of animals that are looked after by experienced professionals. You can even take a nice stroll on a lovely afternoon along their botanical garden which makes up for a picture perfect meeting.

Learning about the preservation of the natural environment is important; this is why in the Rookery Bay National Estuary Research Reserve has a very educational and interactive learning center. You can take your guests out for a walk around the sanctuary and then take the option to join in their volunteer activities. Then you let your guest sit down in their reception area that gives a nice view of the mangrove forest outside while they wait to be received in the Reserve’s state-of-the-art auditorium.

As you can see, the region is filled with a great selection of places to choose from to execute your next meeting agenda. Every venue is fully capable of brining you and your guests total satisfaction and relaxation. The gorgeous sunsets, top-level golf, fishing, boating, kayaking and other stress-relieving activities are sure to make you want to come back for more.
