Keep Corporate Negotiations Private With Meetings On Secluded Captiva Island
"Keep Corporate Negotiations Private With Meetings On Secluded Captiva Island"
When corporate giants like Microsoft, Apple and Google set about acquiring another company, preliminary negotiations often don’t occur in the boardroom or even the executive dining room. In order to protect against stock price fluctuations and the loss of key employees, CEOs often look to transact business off-site. Captiva Island located in southwest Florida is an ideal location for confidential meetings and provides the perfect setting for company leaders to get to know each other without business reporters’ speculation.
Captiva Island Luxury rental homes on Captiva Island are ideal for corporate meetings, and for mixing business with pleasure.
Captiva is just a short drive from the Ft. Myers airport so despite its relative seclusion getting there isn’t difficult. It’s accessed by a toll bridge that keeps casual sightseers
away. Even those that venture onto the island in hopes of catching a glimpse of the magnificent seaside estates are thwarted by lush landscaping and high privacy fences and gates.
Most of the lodging on Captiva is in private homes that rent for the season or require at least a week minimum stay. A few properties like the expansive Sea Oats Luxury Estate can accommodate large parties of 10-20 guests while still offering private suites and all the amenities of a fine hotel. This level of hospitality is not for budget travelers but is worth it for corporations looking to close a billion-dollar deal.
Another advantage of Captiva is that it’s devoid of crowded surf shops, all-you-can-eat fish shacks and the other banes of tourist towns. That doesn’t mean there’s nothing to do on the island. All the typical beach activities can be arranged including fishing charters, wakeboarding and sunset cruises. Local caterers can arrange a five-star meal or casual beach party with fresh gulf shrimp to celebrate when a deal is reached.
Captiva is also an ideal place to mix business with pleasure. While corporate brass are wheeling and dealing, spouses can explore the mangroves at the Ding Darling National Wildlife Reserve, bird watch or visit the quaint shops of Captiva Village. There’s also the opportunity to relax with a walk along the quiet beach or a spa appointment at the lovely establishments on nearby Sanibel. Those looking for some culture can venture further afield and visit the historic Edison-Ford Winter Estate. Airboat rides into the Everglades are also a big draw for adventuresome types.
