With 62 miles of scenic shoreline, the Mississippi Gulf Coast offers a year-round destination for MICE groups.
The region has venues to suit any event, such as the Mississippi Coast Coliseum and Convention Center, which offers over 400,000 sf of meeting space and can accommodate up to 6,000 attendees. The region also boasts nearly 15,000 guest rooms at accommodations ranging from luxury casino resorts to boutique hotels.
“There is an incredible amount to do, see and experience across the Mississippi Gulf Coast,” says Janice Jefferson, sales director at Visit Mississippi Gulf Coast. “From outdoor activities, such as kayaking, boating, fishing and hiking, to a wide variety of attractions, museums, world-class gaming and championship golf courses. When it comes to food, this is also the place to be—coastal seafood shacks to fine dining, we’ve got it all.”
Meetings can be hosted at the Infinity Science Center where attendees can practice landing the space shuttle while sitting in a full-scale shuttle flight deck or walk through a life-size mockup of the International Space Station’s Destiny module. Collections include astronaut space suits, space shuttle rocket engine components and a moon rock from Apollo 15.
“Our staff prides itself in providing outstanding service, and we are eager to help,” says Jefferson. “Tour one of our many fascinating museums, or plan for hands-on experiences through cooking classes or art demonstrations. Cap your day of adventure with a bonfire on the beach under one of our spectacular sunsets.”
