The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club Announces "Meet For Change" Group Promotion

The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club in Southwest Florida has unveiled a new group promotion called “Meet for Change – Meetings Make America Shine” with a patriotic theme and its own “Economic Boost Commitment” as one of several booking incentive components.

The promotion offers multiple tiers of incentives, with values that could reach $10,000 or more per program. Available to groups with 20 peak rooms or more for a minimum of 3 nights, and booked by March 30, 2012, the promotion is available to new programs in ANY YEAR between June 1st – September 30th or December 1st – 19th. The multiple tiers of incentives are based on such criteria as the number of programs booked simultaneously and the size of the programs. For specific details of the promotion, terms and conditions, call the resort’s group sales department at (800) 866-1946, complete a RFP on the resort’s new website, or email the resort directly with details at and reference the “Meet for Change” promotion.

The 317-room resort is Southwest Florida’s only resort directly on the beach with an on-site championship golf course, a world-class spa, and an award-winning tennis center. The resort features 34,000 sq. ft. of meeting space that is further complemented by several beautiful outdoor venues. Continually enhancing its already-impressive offerings, the resort has completed its latest phase of renovations, $40 million thus far. The multi-phase project included guest rooms, suites, golf course, expanded Sunset Beach Bar and Grill, and the addition of a new beachfront pool complex.

“We have been working hard for the last few years upgrading our property at a time when many had to postpone or cancel such projects,” commented Michele Marsee, director of Sales & Marketing for the resort. “We wanted to make a statement to the meetings industry about our commitment to providing a great product and still represent great value. What better way than to extend an incentive package with a punch. Everyone is all about relevance today and completing our latest phase of renovations, now is a perfect time to roll out this star-spangled promotion.”

To further showcase all of the changes made, the resort recently unveiled a brand new website at “The site focuses on the photography,” noted Marsee. “After all it’s the location and amenities that grab people’s attention. However, the site is also very interactive, resourceful and environmentally friendly, particularly for the meetings industry. Beyond information, meeting planners can find our fact sheet, rack brochure, sales kit, photo gallery for their marketing efforts, banquet menus, resource guide and production manual. Everything one would need when planning a program for our property. By making all of this information accessible in one easy location we can reduce the amount of printing, storage, and waste for both parties. Not to mention the time saved. The environmental footprint impact is important to our overall strategy as a Florida Certified Green Lodging member and further complements our efforts best recognized by Collier County presenting us with the ‘Green to Gold’ award for overall environmental leadership within our community.”

The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club is located at 851 Gulf Shore Blvd. North in Naples, Florida. To take advantage of the “Meet for Change” promotion, call (800) 866-1946 or (239) 261-2222, or visit
