THIS IS MEETING SPACE REDEFINED
LET’S MEET IN THE HILLS
Why this is central Florida’s ideal spot for open minds and clear air — a fresh respite from the typical group getaway.
It’s 8:30 on a tuesday mornIng. a tIme when the roads around Florida’s most visit- ed cities are predictably jammed. Even the air overhead is noisy with traffic helicopters. The hectic space spills into offices and into the popular resorts that are supposed to be meeting retreats for business people.
“Honestly, you never entirely escape the tension of the crowds,” says a group planner from a Missouri-based organization. “It’s
differentuphere.Youdon’thavedistractions.” “Up here” is the 1,100-acre enclave just north of Orlando. Tucked among lakes, hills, orchards, wildlife, and with two roads so wide open they should be paved with red carpet
leading to Mission Inn in Howey-in-the-Hills. Nearly 65 percent of all group programs are repeated year to year at Mission Inn. It’s a special atmosphere, inside and out, but the
green space only begins to tell the whole story.
“My dad had a vision for a place where groups could experience a family touch in a special
environment.”
