Swap your dress shoes for flip flops, 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. Our 32 miles of sugar-white sand beaches lining the pristine turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico provide the ideal backdrop for your next meeting, conference or retreat.
Along with the beach, the destination offers kayaking and paddleboarding along the Back Bay Blueway, 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 fitness-focused activities for attendees such as beach yoga, a morning run on the Backcountry Trail or a group exercise class at Moxie Lifestyle Fitness Studio followed by green juices and healthy snacks.

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.
