When you’re ready—to meet again.

Virtual meeting apps like Zoom, Google Hangouts and GoToMeeting have been valuable tools during the Covid-19 pandemic. And while we certainly appreciate having those tools, it has become quite obvious that nothing can replace the impact of face-to-face meetings. Humans need interaction. Meeting in person allows energetic exchange, more flexibility with conversation time, and more generous exchanges between people who want to learn, connect, or do business.

While we are willing to forego handshakes and mouth smiles for the time being (we’ll settle for those smiling eyes), it’s time to revive meetings for the good of our spirits and our businesses.

The importance of travel is beautifully and simply put forth in this article by Brian Jewell of Group Travel Leader. Simply put, humans need interaction and time to unwind. Traveling for meetings and conventions is not only good for business, it is good for attendees and planners alike. Meeting in the Myrtle Beach area offers everyone amazing attractions, great seafood, and of course, that beautiful 60-mile beach. Get some work done, take time to relax and explore--it’s a formula that works.

The Myrtle Beach area hotels, sports and convention centers have worked diligently to develop sanitation protocols and personnel procedures to help prevent the spread of Covid-19. Meetings coordinators are prepared to work with each group to provide exactly what that group needs to feel comfortable. From well-spaced meeting rooms, to pre-packaged foods, there are plenty of things that can be done to limit direct contact with others, yet still experience the dynamic energy of an in-person meeting. For that, there is no substitute.
