Top 10 Reasons to Choose Kiawah Island Golf Resort for Your Next Meeting

Published January 2018

There are so many options and factors to consider when planning a meeting. That’s why the ProMeetings Team has taken the guesswork out of the venue selection by giving you the top ten reasons to choose Kiawah Island Golf Resort for your next meeting:

1. Impactful Location
There’s a growing body of research supporting the positive effect of “blue space” (oceans, lakes, rivers and other bodies of water) on our psychological well-being. Kiawah Island Golf Resort’s stunning 10-mile-long coastal location in South Carolina’s Lowcountry is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Kiawah River, plentiful lagoons and unspoiled marshlands. This abundance of blue space sets the perfect scene to reduce your attendees’ stress levels, as well as boost their cognitive performance and inspire creative thought.

2. Engaging Experience
The IACC “Meeting Room of The Future” report illustrates the importance of creating engaging experiences for meeting attendees. The Kiawah ProMeetings Team can help you deliver on that with unique team-building exercises and rejuvenating “downtime” on our five championship golf courses (all recently fully renovated and boasting pristine playing conditions) and through a nearly endless variety of recreational activities and nature programming.

3. Rewarding Accommodations
Your attendees will view the next meeting as a coveted reward rather than a mandatory chore when they get to stay at an award-winning resort with world-class amenities in a spectacular oceanfront setting. Kiawah’s 5-Star Sanctuary Hotel and spacious Resort Villas offer the versatility to accommodate any size group – and any size budget.

4. Flexible Facilities
According to IACC, the “Meeting Room of The Future” [INFOGRAPHIC] also provides access to collaborate meeting spaces as well as the flexibility to adjust room layouts continuously. Kiawah Island Golf Resort’s 35,000 square feet of meeting facilities across six distinctive venues offers all the space and customization you need within its grand ballrooms, cleverly designed meeting rooms and inspiring outdoor spaces. Another bonus? The resort delivers powerful wireless capability that extends all the way to the beach.

5. Seamless Service
When you host your meeting at Kiawah Island Golf Resort, you can take advantage of a whole host of support services, including comprehensive event planning, catering, professional audio-visual production and support, concierge, photography, video conferencing and floral/decorative design.

6. Expert Staff
Our experienced ProMeetings Team is here to ensure every moment of your meeting or conference will not only meet your expectations, but exceed them – from the time you book your dates straight through your last attendee’s departure. Our support continues even beyond your event with this handy post-meeting checklist.

7. Exceptional F&B
Kiawah’s catering team offers boundless options to fuel your attendees’ productivity and deliver superior dining experiences. From gourmet boxed lunches on the golf course and local Lowcountry cuisine at Mingo Point to interactive cooking demonstrations and fine food and wine pairings, we can fulfill all of your group’s meal and beverage needs. Plus, we offer more than one dozen restaurants on-site for attendees who choose to extend their stay at the resort for a personal getaway.

8. Exciting Entertainment
Kiawah Island Golf Resort makes downtime uplifting. From sport fishing to spa treatments and cultural tours of nearby Charleston to relaxation right on our private beach, there is no lack of things to do when your group isn’t hard at work in your meeting.

9. Little Touches
A welcome amenity in each attendee’s room or a thank you gift for their participation is a way to reward your team and show them how much they’re valued within your organization. Kiawah Island Golf Resort branded merchandise makes the ideal giveaway and will be a continual reminder of your team’s amazing meeting or event.

10. Proven Results
Year-after-year, the meeting industry’s top publications and thought leaders honor Kiawah Island Golf Resort with the most prestigious accolades in the business, including the Pinnacle Award, the Gold Key Award, the Gold Tee Award, the Stars of the South Award, the Golden Links Award, the Planners’ Choice Award and more.
