Puerto Rico is on our map for meetings and conferences! With help from our friends at Discover Puerto Rico, we’re excited to feature the destination as June’s City Snapshot – in this case, Island Snapshot. In particular, as you begin to plan your in person incentives again, Puerto Rico is the perfect option providing the culture, flavors, and colors of an international destination – but without the worries around international travel restrictions since it is a US territory. And while Hurricane Maria was devastating to the region, one silver lining is that nearly all properties have fresh new renovations waiting for your group to enjoy.
Puerto Rico – Our June 2021 Feature
Here’s more from our friends at Discover Puerto Rico on what makes this destination so special for corporate groups:
“It’s time to plan for Puerto Rico. When you plan your event in our Island paradise, your attendees can look forward to turquoise deep dives, warm weather all year and safe ways to connect with one another. As a U.S. territory, Puerto Rico offers the allure of an exotic locale with a rich, vibrant culture, without needing a passport or currency exchange. Accessibility to the Island has never been easier, with direct flights from domestic locations like New York, Charlotte, Dallas, Atlanta, and Detroit, to name a few.
Lodging options range from luxurious beachfront resorts to magical historic inns, and everything in between. High standards of health and safety have been implemented throughout the Island, including local measures developed by the Puerto Rico Tourism Company (PRTC), alongside U.S. Travel Association (USTA) guidelines.
The highly anticipated Distrito T Mobile, opening in 2021, is an exciting option for groups. Featuring an exhilarating urban zipline, large high-tech open air plaza, a production studio and a brand new Aloft hotel – this entertainment district will soon be the most popular setting for events, conventions and networking in the Caribbean.
Puerto Rico offers an abundance of options for hybrid meetings, which will continue to be important in the coming months. The Puerto Rico Convention Center is the largest and most technologically-advanced venue in the Caribbean, featuring a new hybrid production studio offering ways to engage attendees both virtually and in-person. Managed by leading venue management company ASM Global, the Puerto Rico Convention Center boasts Venue Shield, ASM’s environmental hygiene protocol, and was recently awarded the GBAC Star Facility Rating.”
For all these reasons and more, Puerto Rico is a great destination not only for incentives, but also for all kinds of meetings and conferences. Here are our picks by the event types we focus on here at Dynamo.
