Wow your meeting-goers with stunning views and luxurious accommodations at a Southeastern waterfront destination. MGM’s Beau Rivage Resort & Casino, situated along the Gulf Coast in Biloxi, Mississippi, has three ballrooms comprising 29,000 square feet that can be broken down into smaller spaces, the Oaks Ballroom, and five additional indoor and outdoor meeting spaces. The resort also offers in-house catering, an on-site business center, a spa and fitness center, a Topgolf Swing Suite, and more.

The Battle House Renaissance Mobile Hotel & Spa by Bonvoy Marriott in Mobile, Alabama, offers 28,539 square feet of event space across 16 rooms. The hotel’s largest space has a maximum capacity of 1,000. Event services include audiovisual equipment rental, a hotel decorator, an in-house photographer, and more. Conveniently located in the heart of downtown Mobile, the hotel is near several attractions—including the USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park and Mobile Civic Center—and offers views of the Mobile River, which empties into the Gulf of Mexico.

Away from the seaside and the hustle and bustle of coastal city life, Wyndham’s Cypress Bend Resort in Many, Louisiana, sits on the shore of Toledo Bend Lake. The property, which is surrounded by 475 acres of Louisiana forest, makes an idyllic backdrop for your event. The resort has 15,000 square feet of flexible meeting space across 10 venues. The ballroom, banquet facility, and meeting rooms of varying sizes can accommodate up to 350 eventgoers standing or 250 banquet-style. On-site amenities include audiovisual equipment, in-house catering, a fitness center, and more.
