Why Retreats Resources Events?

As always with Retreats Resources, participation in our events requires no minimums and no membership fees. Each of our events, whether in person or virtual, offers:

  • Networking and Intimate Meetings with qualified luxury level event planners and incentive specialists in the MICE industry
  • An attendee directory with all contact information that you need to keep the conversation going!
  • Engaging, entertaining industry content and theming - each event is unique and on-trend with the issues facing the hospitality industry
  • Authentic connection with customers in a true spirit of partnership and community. This is our mission and our passion!
  • Retreats Resources created the original hotel and hospitality networking event showcase in 2004. We've been introducing luxury destinations to qualified meeting planners and decision makers for nearly two decades, setting the standard for client engagement and delivering ROI with every event.

Our Events Schedule

We're offering exciting live events with the same creativity and luxury on which we've built our reputation, bringing fun to business events.

We are moving forward in a spirit of partnership and exploration, and we would love for you to come along with us!

We've discovered in the past months that our client community is hungry for engagement, laughter and some space to daydream about future travels. They enter our space as fully engaged as they can be, and we feel that we are laying the groundwork for a stronger, more vibrant and, notably, a more grateful community for all of our future endeavors.

We sincerely hope that you will join in! Mark your calendars now!
