Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort Completes Major Renovation of Linkside Conference Center

MIRAMAR BEACH, FL (06/05/2018). Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort recently completed its major renovation of the 15,000 square-foot Linkside Conference Center. Offering beautifully-appointed, modern function space adjacent to Sandestin’s Bayside area, the Linkside Conference Center is ideal for groups up to 1,200; including two bayfront venues, a 5,500 square-foot ballroom, four breakout rooms and an executive boardroom.

“This project signifies the resort’s commitment to providing the highest quality meeting experience for attendees and resort guests,” stated Deidra Stange, Director, Regional Sales. “Linkside Conference Center compliments our meeting space in the Baytowne Conference Center perfectly and allows us to offer more opportunities to meetings and corporate incentive groups. Our meeting professionals look forward to presenting Linkside Conference Center’s transformation to our customers.”

The transformation of Linkside Conference Center features a southern coastal contemporary look with soothing colors of chocolate brown, different hues of blue, and cool grays. The tasteful and elegant new design brings positive energy to any function with custom-colored carpet in the pre-function and ballroom areas. Beautiful pendant lighting and sconces, tasteful furniture and eye-catching artwork all accentuate the space. The Bayview Room, featuring breathtaking views along Choctawhatchee Bay, has been elevated with elegant carpet and crystal chandeliers, creating a perfect venue for brides.

Meeting planners can utilize the resort’s creative and unique landscape options including outdoor gathering spots—lawns, marina, pool decks, terraces and beach, a sunset luau on the beach, a night of entertainment aboard a luxury yacht, charter boat fishing, team-building and much more. Options for mixers and private dining are just steps away in the 26-acre pedestrian Village of Baytowne Wharf, offering several entertainment, retail and dining options.
