With 100km of breathtaking beachfront, an international airport, 100,000 accommodation units at various price levels, and a modern convention center with an upscale adjoining hotel, the Myrtle Beach area is an ideal destination to host meetings, incentive programs and group gatherings.

Within the Myrtle Beach area’s 14 distinct communities, meeting planners will be sure to find a meeting facility and accommodations to suit their needs. More than 30 of the area’s hotels and resorts offer functional meeting facilities for groups of 10 to 2,000 attendees.  With larger groups utilizing the Myrtle Beach Convention Center which boasts 250,000 square feet of flexible meeting space. Ranging from a 100,000 square foot column-free exhibition hall to 20 breakout meeting rooms and a 17,000 square foot ballroom, the Convention Center can accommodate a variety of group needs.

Flying here is easier than ever via the Myrtle Beach International Airport, with several well-known carriers flying non-stop to Myrtle Beach, including Porter Airlines, WestJet and Spirit Airlines. Non-stop air service from Toronto City Centre Airport is available on Porter Airlines. Non-stop air service from Toronto Pearson International Airport is available on WestJet. Just over the Quebec border in Plattsburgh, NY and the Toronto border in Niagara Falls, NY and Detroit MI, Spirit Airlines offers non-stop air service to Myrtle Beach. The Myrtle Beach International Airport is also well-equipped and accessible via a multitude of U.S. east- coast gateway options.

Myrtle Beach offers 90 championship golf courses, restaurants for every culinary experience, shopping from boutiques to outlets and just about every amusement activity. But we also know today’s meeting and incentive groups are constantly on the lookout for exciting and innovative ways to promote team building and networking among participants. Nestled within all the activities are the Myrtle Beach area’s coastal settings offering an abundance of outdoor activities. With miles of public beaches, two oceanfront state parks, hiking and biking trails, the ocean, rivers and marshlands, the opportunities are endless. Along with history, garden and museum tours, wine tastings and even a Tiger preservation we can find an activity or two to fit your meetings goals.

But what really makes the Myrtle Beach area stand out is the locals’ commitment to supporting the community and welcoming visitors. The Visit Myrtle Beach team works with about a dozen “Local Experts” who are more than willing to speak, train or just come network with a group.  Our Experts range from Golf, History and Culture, Culinary, Entertainment, Nature and Outdoor activities. This offers groups great team building opportunities as well as a chance to step outside the boardroom and open their minds to new experiences

The Myrtle Beach Area Convention & Visitors Bureau can help facilitate your meeting from beginning to end, offsite and onsite! Our staff also offers a menu of complimentary meeting and convention services for planners interested in booking a future program.
