Naples and Marco Island Venues for Large Groups

While there isn't a central convention center in the area, there are plenty of places that can accommodate big groups on the Paradise Coast. Why have your group meet between four walls when they can enjoy tropical and beachfront settings, art galleries, wildlife preserves and more? Here's a look at where big groups can stay, meet and play.

Big properties

Start thinking big at the JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort, which sits on Southwest Florida's largest stretch of beach. With 100,000 square feet of indoor meeting space - far more if you calculate outdoor areas including the beach, resort courtyards, and more - their extensive facilities can easily accommodate up to 2,000 guests in a setting with breathtaking tropical charm. The resort has completed a $320 million transformation that makes this amazing property exquisite in every last detail.

Offering sweeping emerald views of the 36-hole Tiburón Golf Club, The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples, has an exceptional experience for everyone; a round of golf on a picturesque course, floating down the lazy river at the all-new Reservoir waterpark or indulging in flavorful Latin American-inspired cuisine and creative cocktails at Ria.

Impeccable Ritz-Carlton services and amenities include 16,500 square feet of meeting space, an experienced staff to attend to every need, a comprehensive business center, state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment and technicians, and complete catering and entertainment planning services.

The popular Naples Grande Beach Resort is a great choice for bigger meetings. This dynamic resort is right on the Gulf and offers a contemporary-style setting, with more than 80,000 square feet of customizable indoor and outdoor function space. Elegant and chic, the Naples Grande is also home to the Naples Grande Spa.
