Laid-Back Meetings, the New Way to Meet. (Sponsored)

New Smyrna Beach, Florida, known for small-town charm with big town flavors, is a one-of-a-kind sustainable beach town on Florida’s Central Atlantic Coast. Located only an hours’ drive from Orlando International Airport, access is easy. With white sandy beaches, a new waterfront convention center, off-the-hook locally-owned eateries, great golf, biking, and water trails with no end, arts, and culture, all wrapped around a variety of venues, New Smyrna Beach is the perfect place with just the right pace to exceed your next meeting’s goals.

With 17 miles of white sandy beaches that stretch from Ponce Inlet to Canaveral National Seashore, just steps from many of our accommodations with ocean view rooms and meeting facilities, it’s a natural fit. And if being in the right frame of mind to accomplish your goals is essential, the luxurious Riverview Hotel and Spa—a getaway renowned for its on-site spa, including access to a therapeutic waterfall and mineral pools will put your mind at ease.

If memorable dining is on the list, New Smyrna Beach is home to one-of-a-kind restaurants and bars where you’ll savor true laid-back luxury. There are no chain restaurants on New Smyrna’s beachside, as all are independently owned and operated. Many serve masterful preparations of the day’s fresh catch. Food lovers have a broad range of dining choices to satisfy any craving, and there are many outdoor waterfront options with beautiful views and live music. It’s no wonder why New Smyrna Beach was named one of Florida’s best beach towns by both the Huffington Post and Smarter Travel.

Beach Party

Need room to spread out?

Atlantic Center for the Arts is the perfect location for corporate retreats, seminars, workshops, wellness retreats, and other private functions. ACA’s main campus is set on 11 acres rich in flora and fauna along Turnbull Bay, providing an incomparable environment for your next event.

If team building is on the list, then put us at the top. Start the day with beach yoga at sunrise, an ocean view boardwalk walk-in Smyrna Dunes Park, or if an early morning tee time is your team’s thing, you’re in the right place too.  Map out a local bicycle ride or hit the trails together early to work up a hearty appetite. If adventure sounds like fun, head out together on the NSB Arts Trail, History Trail, or Outdoor Trail. There are trail maps on our website.

With so much to offer in an ideal location, it’s not surprising that New Smyrna Beach is the preferred choice of more event planners, meeting planners, and companies looking for a new place to hold executive retreats and small to medium-sized meetings. We look forward to seeing you here soon!
