The Island Experience

While our diversity of venues, accommodations, and amenities make Hilton Head Island the perfect destination for conferences and meetings, we always combine business with pleasure here. Cruises, artist exhibitions, barbeques on the beach, and more are all part of our meeting mix—and your rewards—for a hard day’s work. And although Hilton Head’s natural beauty and variety of activities are renowned the world over, many professionals and event planners believe that it’s our hospitality that makes meetings and events here so memorable. Because when you visit Hilton Head Island, you’ll discover the only thing warmer than our weather is our welcome.
