Visit Sarasota County

Sarasota, FL, centrally located on the picturesque Gulf Coast, is the perfect blend of cosmopolitan lifestyle and seaside oasis. A plethora of arts and entertainment, the most restaurants per capita, a vibrant downtown district and 35 miles of tranquil shoreline are just a few reasons that Sarasota is rapidly becoming a sought-after mid-size city meetings destination.

Attendees are delighted by Sarasota’s special combination of big city amenities and small-town charm. While unique experiences are abundant—from kayaking through mangrove tunnels, to roaming the grounds of the famed Ringling Museum, to attending performances at one of the many local theaters—groups will also receive the personal attention and hospitality that major metropolises often lack.

The city continues to expand with Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport flying non-stop to over 26 major U.S. cities, and Sarasota County has welcomed six new meeting properties within the last three years. Visit Sarasota County also offers a robust Meeting Incentive Program focused on wellness initiatives, transportation, group dining and room rebates with up to $3,750 in reimbursements.
