Grand Sandestin Conference facilities & hotel

Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort

The Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort on Florida’s Emerald Coast reaches from a 7-mile strand of white sand beach to tranquil Choctawhatchee Bay. It includes championship golf courses, tennis courts, swimming pools, a marina, a fitness center and spa and a pedestrian village. Free amenities include resort-wide tram service and the use of bicycles, kayaks and boogie boards for exploring Florida’s Emerald Coast.

It Takes a Village

All conference activities will take place at the Grand Sandestin, located in the Baytowne area along the Choctawhatchee Bay. Accommodations will be in the vacation condominiums arrayed around it, just steps from the Tennis Center, Baytowne Adventure Zone, Jolee Island, the Marina and the Village of Baytowne Wharf. Recently voted Best Place to Be Seen on the Emerald Coast and Best Local Attraction, Baytowne Wharf is a pedestrian village featuring 16 retail shops, 11 activity and entertainment establishments, and 20 award winning restaurants and night clubs.

Detailed instructions for making reservations at the special conference rate of $150 per night will be available when registration opens in early June.


Get around the resort on the complimentary tram or, for more adventurous transportation, you may choose to make use of the complimentary bicycles, kayaks or boogie boards!

We’ll be less than 10 minutes by bike or car from a Publix grocery store, in case you want to stock your kitchenette, in the Grand Boulevard Shopping Center. For a walk on the wild side, check out nearby Topsail Hill Preserve State Park.

Further information about transportation options, including airport transportation, will be available once registration opens.
