Greater Fort Lauderdale: A Meetings Destination and So Much More

By Meeting Professionals International | Dec 3, 2019

Greater Fort Lauderdale has long been known as a haven for vacationers looking to soak up the Florida sunshine, but meeting planners and their guests find the destination has much more to offer these days.

The beaches and boating are enjoyable on the Atlantic Coast and Intracoastal Waterway, but anyone charged with site selection for a convention or event will bask in the glow of spectacular venues and amenities found in a bustling, modern Greater Fort Lauderdale.

In addition to the Convention Center, other venues provide interesting options, too. In the downtown warehouse and arts district known as Flagler Arts and Technology Village, event spaces ranging from 6,000 to 8,000-sq.-ft offer an artsy vibe for your gathering. The African-American Research Library and Cultural Center includes a 300-seat theater among the museum exhibits, books, documents and artifacts of interest there. Water venues can accommodate dinner cruises and sightseeing tours to provide your guests with a memorable South Florida experience.
