About

At Florida Destinations, we come to work every day because we are passionate about great events and enjoy making people happy.

In today’s world, Planners struggle with limited time, tight budgets, and inspiration slumps. If they’re planning remotely and unsure of who to rely on for their meeting needs in a distant location, it adds yet another challenge to the task.

That is where we come in. As a regional resource, smart Planners look to us as planning experts in their meeting destination to help save time, boost awe, lower cost, and dodge disasters. They don’t relinquish control. They just want help with the difficult parts; the ones that we provide in our home territory every day.

Since 1991, Florida Destinations has provided a comprehensive line of meeting & event services in Florida’s Central West Coast… and what keeps us ticking for all those years is a passion for elevating the experience for Attendees and Planners alike.
