One approach is to look at the world’s top meeting destinations. There are lots of fabulous places to meet. Here are five, with a list of 9 more at the end. Each location is valued for a slightly different reason—whether for famous entertainment or local culture, natural beauty or man-made wonders—and each location on our list has been selected because it is business friendly.
So go ahead and choose a location you (or attendees) would love to visit. You can choose to host your meetings and conferences at domestic venues, or you can turn the eventinto an international business conference.

Aside from the sun, surf, and year-round beach weather, Orlando, Florida is most famous for its theme parks.

Whether you’re traveling with the family or looking to entertain a group of business professionals after the meeting is over, there’s a wealth of attractions, with plenty of excitement to be had.
London is a city with a history stretching back at least 2,000 years. The seat of culture, business, and entertainment in the U.K., it’s the heart of a country that has been a worldwide influencer for hundreds of years. In addition to world-renowned attractions such as the British Museum, Big Ben, and Buckingham Palace, London is famous for its theater scene. Famous actors and movie stars frequently grace stages in the city, performing Shakespearean classics and new plays alike.
Singapore is famous for several reasons, not the least of which is its distinction as one of the cleanest cities in the world. It’s also one of the most culturally diverse, home to four different official languages: Malay, Mandarin, Tamil, and English. The city also observes national holidays for a host of different religions.
Singapore is also well known for its wide variety of cultural cuisines, for its architecture, and for the world-renowned Singapore Zoo. It’s one of the more expensive locations on the list, but well worth the price.
