Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, is 60 miles of beautiful uninterrupted coastline that connects 14 distinct communities. It's that seemingly endless stretch of sunny, sandy shores that leads visitors across the nation to simply call the destination "The Beach," and it's one of the main reasons why over 20 million people visit Myrtle Beach every year for both work and play.

An amazing event in Myrtle Beach starts from the very moment your attendees arrive. Myrtle Beach International Airport receives flights from cities all over the world, including direct flights from dozens of locales in the United States. From the airport, it's just a short drive to stunning hotels and resorts built to accommodate groups of all sizes.

Our helpful planning team, top-notch lodging and facilities, and Southern hospitality are what makes Myrtle Beach perfect for meetings and conventions. But the thing that will take your event to the next level is the nonstop entertainment available around our 60 miles and 14 communities, which your attendees can enjoy when the meetings end.

The fun doesn't stop when you're at The Beach - and it certainly doesn't end at the coastline. Your attendees can network at one of 90 golf courses, enjoy team-building activities at one of 50 mini-golf courses, have post-work drinks with live music any night of the week, and savor some of the best local flavor on the East Coast at one of 2,000+ restaurants.

It isn't just the options that make The Beach great - it's also the ease. The Myrtle Beach International Airport is located near downtown and offers nonstop flights from many major cities and airlines. It's even located within a 15-minute drive to the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, a GBAC-accredited facility with 100,800 square feet of meeting space. Altogether, Myrtle Beach offers over 500,000 square feet of meeting space - with options to suit any size of meeting - and over 158,000 accommodation rooms that range from high-class hotels and resorts to villas and more.

Whether the event you're planning is as small as a team outing or as large as a trade show, The Beach has the top-flight facilities and entertainment required for your attendees. Our planning team has all the knowledge, experience, and know-how to make your meeting one to remember.
