The picturesque Islands Of The Bahamas is an ideal destination that caters to travelers who blend business with pleasure. The tropical retreat is home to world-class hotels and resorts with state-of-the-art, audiovisual-equipped meeting facilities that will ensure functions go as smoothly as the sand and surf that surround the islands.

Whether seeking a mega-resort such as Atlantis, Paradise Island with its more than 200,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting, convention and banquet space or the more intimate British Colonial Hilton Nassau with ocean and garden view boardrooms, The Bahamas has a superior inventory of business facilities that can meet the needs of any sized group.

Travelers are invited to explore the many islands of The Bahamas and take advantage of the array of activities each has to offer. Tee-off between meetings on Grand Bahama Island, the golf capital of the Caribbean, or relax with soothing spa treatments at The Westin and Sheraton at Our Eucaya Beach & Golf Resort. The resort boasts 90,000 square feet of flexible meeting and function space and works closely with destination management companies to develop customized events and team-building retreats.

For venues in more secluded locales, The Out Islands Of The Bahamas features the luxurious Four Seasons Resort at Emerald Bay in Exuma with 25,000 square feet of meeting space, a Greg Norm an designed golf course, and a full-service spa.

The turquoise waters surrounding The Bahamas offer an escape from the confines of a boardroom. Travelers can snorkel, dive, kayak, fish, or simply plant their feet in the sand and soak up the sun.

The Islands Of The Bahamas is easily accessible from the U.S. via major carriers including American Airlines, Continental, Delta, JetBlue Airways, Song, Spirit Airlines and US Airways.
