⎜ ConventionSouth ⎜ M A Y 2 0 1 8 w w w . c o n v e n t i o n s o u t h . c o m 16 By Marcia Bradford the not-too-distant past, resorts were typically places where adults went to relax, sit by the pool and enjoy the scenery while children splashed in the water and played at the arcade. When groups met at resorts it could sometimes be frustrating to be stuck in a meeting room, knowing that great scenery and recreational options were just outside the door. Times have changed. Many resorts are now specializing in immersive experiences and this definitely includes offering a range of activities that get groups out of the meeting room to enjoy all that a property has to offer. Among the types of activi- ties trending at resorts are: meeting breaks that place an emphasis on health and well-being; networking in unique gathering spots; food functions that feature local flavors; themed events that take advantage of resort settings; separate spaces for adult and family gatherings; and lots of options for adventure. To help identify resorts in the South that exemplify these and other trends, we reached out to ConventionSouth readers and social media friends to get their input. Based on their response, we present the 15 properties selected as The South's Trendiest Resorts. ► South's the In Trendiest Resorts! Dolphin Lobby at Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Resort
