Small or large, every group receives executive treatment
At TradeWinds Island Resorts, every group — no matter the size — receives executive treatment, a hallmark of TradeWinds’ attentive service. You and your attendees will appreciate the surprising level of personal attention from your own TradeWinds’ team. Our executive treatment comes in many forms, including:
A dedicated reservation agent
Unlike other resorts that use off-site agents, your group reservationist is a member of the TradeWinds’ staff, intimately familiar with both resorts, along with the venues and activities you selected. We also can set your group up with its own event web page, featuring an online reservation portal. Along with your reservation agent, your convention service manager is on call 24/7 during your meeting. Simply put, you’ll find dedication is a common theme at TradeWinds.
Custom team-building activities
Looking for corporate retreat ideas? Build some camaraderie with a retreat under the warm Florida sun. TradeWinds Island Resorts’ ingenious recreation staff can customize team-building exercises and fun corporate tournaments to fit any group or gathering. Sink or swim with a boat building regatta, engage in glow-in-the-dark volleyball or embark on a photo scavenger hunt. For a little unstructured fun, let attendees explore the resort and nearby area attractions.
Resort Transportation Services
TradeWinds offers on-site Resort Transportation Services, boasting a full fleet of vehicles, including sedans for VIP transfers and a 20-passenger shuttle bus for large groups. You’ll find drivers at the ready for airport pickup service, return flight drop-off and St. Pete excursions. Arrangements can be made for stretch limos or even a 47- or 55-passenger motor coach or, for your convenience, on-site Hertz car rentals are available at Island Grand.
For presentations that really pack a punch, there’s no better place to host your event than TradeWinds. We partner with Five-Star AudioVisual, a premier name in technology services, to equip your meeting facilities with the latest equipment. In addition to high-speed Internet access and reliable phone services, you’ll have access to laptops, desktops, printers, projectors and state-of-the-art audio-video components.
Shipping and Receiving/Business Center
For convenience, TradeWinds Island Resorts features a Shipping and Receiving Department/Business Center. Located inside the main lobby of Island Grand, this center features essential services to run any business from afar. From printing services to shipping (with weekly 4:30 p.m. pickup), the center is conveniently located near the Grand Palm Colonnade Conference Center. The business center is open 24 hours, seven days a week. Shipping/receiving is open from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
