  • Hosting an executive board meeting aboard a 727 airliner at the Sun n Fun Expo Campus.
  • Participating in a corporate cattle drive or rounding out the evening around a campfire and toasting s’mores at Westgate River Ranch.Taking attendees on a private safari or hosting a sunset reception amongst a herd of zebras at Safari Wilderness.
  • Listening to a custom carillon concert while enjoying chef prepared meal under the stars at Bok Tower Gardens.

These experiences and many other hidden gems await your discovery here in Central Florida’s Polk County.
