Why Retreats Resources Events?

Retreats Resources has 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.

In the true spirit of partnership, we want to remind you that we are a no-commission, no-fees hospitality company.

As always with Retreats Resources, participation in our events requires no minimumsno membership fees, and we never charge you for access to our data.

Each of our events offers:

  • Networking and Intimate Meetings with qualified luxury-level event planners and incentive specialists in the MICE industry
  • Complimentary access to The Source, our proprietary database and ‘hospitality hub’ of MICE event planners
  • A beautifully-designed, printed directory from each event with all attendee contact information that you need to keep the conversation going!
  • Transportation between event locations (where possible) in a luxury motor coach, allowing you to get work done and relax between events!
  • Authentic connection with customers in a true spirit of partnership and community. This is our mission and our passion!

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!
