Discover The Palm Beaches

December 3, 2014

$1 Million Incentive Program

Conv-Ctr-400Discover The Palm Beaches announced $1 million in incentives for meeting planners. The news comes in advance of the new 430-room Hilton Convention Center West Palm Beach Hotel projected to open in January 2016, which will provide a hotel directly adjacent to the Palm Beach County Convention Center. The new property is within the city’s Convention, Arts and Entertainment District.

Groups of from five to 5,000 or more attendees qualify for the incentives if the opportunity is new to The Palm Beaches and will utilize both the Palm Beach County Convention Center and a hotel room block within the county. The incentive encourages meeting planners to consider a wide breadth of lodging options to accommodate their groups’ requirements at a reduced cost (for the events planned prior to the Hilton Convention Center West Palm Beach Hotel’s opening).

More than 50 hotels across The Palm Beaches qualify for this group incentive program with meeting facilities across the luxury, upscale, midscale and select service categories. The incentives start immediately and are applicable through the year 2020.

The following complimentary value-added planning services are also offered exclusively when sourcing your event with Discover The Palm Beaches, The Official Sales Agent for Meetings and Conventions in Palm Beach County, Florida:

  • Onsite registration and visitor information assistance at the host hotel or the Palm Beach County Convention Center.
  • Attendee welcome bags, promotional items and information about The Palm Beaches.
  • President’s Welcome Letter with locally made chocolate delicacies for a select number of VIPs.
  • Preferred provider recommendations and referrals for any local support services, such as dining, attractions, audio visual, transportation and more.
  • Referral and recommendations for spousal excursions and offsite activities and events.
  • Recommendations on first-class sporting venues such as golf, tennis, boating, fishing, and more.
  • Advice on socially responsible and sustainable meetings and events.
  • Access to a generous high-resolution photo library and e-tools to promote the conference.
  • Airport “Meet and Greet” service plus signature Palm Beach International (PBI) airport welcome signage.

This special promotion applies to new business opportunities only and is based upon actualized room nights. The final incentive is based on seasonality of the qualifying event and dollars may be credited toward the Palm Beach County Convention Center, hotel and/or transportation costs.
