Between-The-Sessions: Community Partnerships

Integrate Community Partners & Destination Champions Into Meetings & Events

Bring the best to the table by enlisting the local expertise and regional experience from our community partners at your next group meeting in The Palm Beaches.

 

Destination Champions Program

Consider The Palm Beaches’ Destination Champions Program to help you gather the right leaders, local business partners and industry experts to inspire and connect your attendees between-the-sessions. 

  • Our Destination Champions showcase the key assets of the county’s targeted industries, including Agribusiness, Life Sciences & Healthcare, Aviation & Engineering, IT & Technology, Marine Industries and Financial Services. 
  • Activate these industry leaders and partners by securing a keynote speaker from one of the 75+ businesses whose corporate headquarters are in The Palm Beaches, bringing in a mental health expert to inspire the audience, or schedule a tour of a local industry to engage attendees in a deep-dive experience. Some of our well-known corporate headquarters include AT&T, 4Ocean, TBC Corporation, Chatham Lodging Trust, Hope Water, BurgerFi, and Pinnacle Hotel Management.

Community Partnerships

  • Cultural Council for Palm Beach County’s Cultural Concierge Program offers a network of artisans for booking to help create an immersive experience within the meeting spaces (e.g., on-site art installations and exhibitions). Bring in an area artist to create a custom piece for your event, or have a local musician perform at your event. The Council can also arrange for between-the-sessions group visits/tours to one of the 200+ cultural institutions in the destination.
  • Offer coffee from local roasteries, including West Palm Beach’s Pumphouse Coffee Roasters, Common Grounds Brew & Roastery, Watercolor Coffee Co., Subculture Coffee, and Roast Up.

  • Include A/V production by utilizing The Palm Beach County Film & Television Commission, who can provide easy access to the destination’s production companies and resources. We have many A/V partners within the county—including Apex Productions and Burlingame Consultants, who are experts in producing video and meetings.  
  • Offer artisanal local products brought in by partner boutiques, vendors, and creators. You can find many of these artisans/purveyors at local farmers markets. Or, you can utilize The BDB of Palm Beach County, which can direct you to the specific retail businesses you’d prefer to source for your event’s shopping asset between-the-sessions.
