It Pays To Meet In Kissimmee

Starting May 1, 2023, Experience Kissimmee will plant trees based on actualized paid room nights booked through our meeting incentive.

The trees will help with the creation of future forests, restoring eco-systems, biodiversity and supporting local communities, plus an investment is made into a United Nations renewable energy carbon credit which will help to reduce a portion of the meeting organizations' carbon emissions.

Meeting Planner Resources

There exists a subtle but distinct difference between a good meeting and a great one. A good meeting provides necessities like quality meeting spaces and suitable accommodations for attendees. But a great meeting is something else entirely. It's built around service. Because when there's partnership and understanding, incredible things happen. Here are just some of the resources that Experience Kissimmee can help provide.

For the vast majority of events, you need excellent coordination and integration of vendor services to successfully stage a seamless experience from beginning to end. Components such as procurement of custom signage, rental of specialized equipment, transportation services, and entertainment require expert knowledge of the area and an understanding of local vendors. Experience Kissimmee stands ready to assist with all your third-party vendor needs, and we're happy to provide a list of recommended local vendors.

If you’re meeting in Kissimmee, we encourage you to include Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as part of your complete event agenda. Experience Kissimmee embraces Corporate Social Responsibility, and we can help identify local charities and community projects that invite CSR opportunities. Engage your delegates through volunteerism, donations, and more. Plus, provide tangible connections with your company’s own strategic goals and charitable pursuits.

We can recommend excellent Kissimmee non-profit organizations and other partners that would be a good match for your group.

Our knowledgeable services team can point you to restaurants with the ideal private dining space for your group. Beyond the size of the space, we consider the location, atmosphere, style, menu, and more to ensure a great fit with your group.

Central Florida hotels, venues, attractions, restaurants, transportation services, and vendors are accustomed to serving visitors of all abilities from around the globe. Work with our dedicated services team to make your event as seamless and stress-free as possible for all attendees.

Working with our services team, you can request access to 50 to 100 word Kissimmee descriptions as well as local photography that can be downloaded for meeting promotion through MediaValet.
