Hear What Planners are Saying about Meetings in The Palm Beaches

 

“It's really important for a destination to come together and work collaboratively. I'm really impressed with West Palm Beach and how the entire community, it's not just the convention centers or the hotels, but it's the airport, it’s the restaurants, they're all getting GBAC STAR certified. So that creates more of a safety net…for our attendees.”

Executive Director, Meetings 
Association Management Center 
“From the time that we registered in advance and the health screening app, everything was handled with the utmost safety and security and wellbeing of everyone here.  The ability to come together and convene in person was so powerful in terms of advancing our events industry and helping the industry recover. I'm grateful for The Palm Beaches for really leading the model of how we come back together in the business events industry.”

The hotels are being safe, they're cleaning.  can go back to my clients and say that it's a great location. You're going to feel comfortable going and being safe.”
