By Sponsored Content, March 20, 2018

Looking for an events destination that’s a little bit different? Mobile, Alabama, has been hosting visitors for over 300 years, so we know a thing or two about hosting spectacular meetings and events. If you’re not hooked by our genuine Southern hospitality or our flair for throwing parties, we think our commitment to helping you plan meetings that will be talked about for years may just do the trick.

You may be surprised to know that Mobile is quite the walkable city.  With over 1,100 hotel rooms in the downtown area, 45 restaurants and a variety of attractions, shops and nightlife options, you could park your car in downtown Mobile and not get back in until it’s time to head home.

The waterfront Arthur R. Outlaw Convention Center, connected to Renaissance Mobile Riverview Plaza Hotel, is one of the premiere meeting and exhibition venues of its kind in the South. This waterfront beauty boasts more than 300,000 square feet of meeting space and features a 100,000-sq.-ft. exhibit hall.  It offers incredible flexibility for business, sporting and social functions.  More than 6,000 hotel rooms can be found throughout the city should your group be looking for a wide range of other venues, rates and locales. Your meeting success is assured with the assistance of Visit Mobile and the Convention Center’s staff, a committed team of experienced professionals who love this city!

Looking for some fun while you’re in town? You’ll find museums and attractions showcasing everything from art to Mardi Gras, history to science, the military to much more!  How about dancing in the street with thousands of new friends at one of the region’s many outdoor music festivals, catching Moon Pies thrown from fire-breathing dragon floats during Mardi Gras or taking in millions of glittering holiday lights on a 65-acre garden estate?  Or, for the water lovers, explore America’s Amazon, the Mobile-Tensaw River Delta by pontoon, kayak or airboat.
