As a resident of the Mississippi Gulf Coast, you know all about the great things to do and the struggles that our area has faced since August 29, 2005. We are asking that Mississippi residents share our story and offer invitations to any organization, trade show or association that is looking for a place to hold one of its meetings, conventions or seminars. There’s no better spot than the place we call home.
In the last year, we have overcome many obstacles but there are many meeting and convention options open for groups including full service casino resorts to smaller family-friendly non-casino properties. The Mississippi Gulf Coast offers an exciting array of attractions, sixty-two miles of beaches including the world's longest man-made beach (26 miles), fun-filled resort casinos, championship golf courses, award-winning restaurants, and challenging deep-sea fishing, sure to entertain visitors and promote elevated event attendance records. When you put it all together, there’s no better destination for professional organizations looking for new exciting venues.
Which is why we’ve developed “Coast Host,” our program designed to help you promote the Mississippi Gulf Coast to your colleagues and friends across the country. By becoming a “Coast Host,” you can help bring vital tourism dollars back into our area and make us a top-of-mind destination for groups across the country.
Complete the “Coast Host” form and one of our experienced sales managers will contact you or contact us at (228) 896-6699, ext. 223. Once we have a list of prospects from you, we’ll contact them with all the information they need to choose the Gulf Coast as their next event destination. And they’ll know it all came their way because of you – their “Coast Host.” If you would like to print the submission form to distribute to organizations to which you belong, please click here.
Successful “Coast Hosts” are recognized annually at the Mississippi Gulf Coast “Billy Creel” Tourism Award Dinner.
