Meeting Sites Mississippi Gulf Coast Ante up in the High Limit Salon at the Beau Rivage; below, Emeril’s Lemon-Vanilla Bean Pie at Island View BRIGHTEN UP: New Orleans’ neighbor to the east deserves to come out of the Crescent City’s shadow. The rich history of the Mississippi Gulf Coast dates back to the 1600s, when French colonists settled in what is now Ocean Springs. Today, the area’s Deep South culture of art, cuisine, and entertainment fuses with the region’s Spanish, French, and Native American heritage against a scenic backdrop, pulling this stretch of Mississippi out of the shadow and into a light of its own. The 26-mile coastline and a collection of barrier islands create opportunities for deep-sea fishing, boat excursions, watersports, and exploration. The area’s golf courses rank among the best in the country, and the 11 casino hotels rival the quality found in Las Vegas properties. Southern cuisine and fresh seafood make for an enticing menu of dining opportunities in locally owned cafes and four-star restaurants alike. These are but a few of the reasons to give the Mississippi Gulf Coast a closer look. Essential Tool Box Convention Center/Facilities: Mississippi Coast Coliseum & Convention Center, 180,000 sf of newly renovated meeting and pre-function space. Area room inventory is over 11,000.
