Swap your dress shoes for flip flips, blazers for board shorts and briefcases for boogie boards; because when you meet on our beach, we make sure you get your work done so you have plenty of time for fun in the sun. With 32 miles of sugar-white sand beaches lining the pristine turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach provide the ideal backdrop for your next meeting, conference or retreat.
Along with the beach, the destination offers 28+ miles of paved biking trails, the Back Bay Blueway for kayaking and paddleboarding, a variety of fishing excursions, a plethora of locally-owned restaurants offering fresh Gulf seafood, and live music at area restaurants and bars. Meeting planners might also consider booking a Signature Experience for their groups. Depending on the size of your party, you can schedule everything from gumbo cooking and mixology classes to animal encounters at the zoo and unique nature walks. These activities provide for fantastic after-hours gatherings and teambuilding activities.
So far, our destination may sound like all play and no work, but don’t be fooled! Gulf Shores and Orange Beach offer meeting spaces that can accommodate up to 2,000 attendees, full-service convention properties directly on the beach, nationally-branded hotels and off-site venues for breakout sessions and other events. One of the area’s newest offerings is the Gulf Coast Center for Ecotourism and Sustainability. Operating out of the Gulf State Park Learning Campus, the center offers meeting spaces, team-building activities and more.
