FAQ

Where is the BEECH Retreat being held?
The BEECH Retreat is being held at the one-of-a-kind South Seas Island Resort in Captiva, Florida. Kick off your shoes, wander the beaches. It’s that kind of environment.

Into which airport should I fly?
Ft. Myers, Florida (RSW) is the closest airport. Van service is provided from there to the island on Thursday and back to the airport on Sunday.

What is the price to attend BEECH?
Tickets will be for sale starting Monday, July 2 at 8:00 am, EST. Five (5) Early Bird tickets will sell for $550 each. The remaining 75 tickets will cost $635 each. Tickets will be available until they sell out, or until January 19 – whichever comes first.

What does my ticket include?
The cost of the ticket covers your full retreat pass for all events Thursday, January 31 through Sunday, February 3, including transportation from RSW to the resort, bellman fees, resort fees, wi-fi, all sessions, all meals (beginning Thursday night through brunch on Sunday), all sponsor parties, and beautiful lodgings at Harbourside at South Seas Resort.

When should I arrive and depart?
Registration is from Noon until 4p on Thursday, January 31. It is suggested you arrive early on Thursday, January 31, to get settled before the fun begins that evening. Events will continue until late evening on Saturday, February 2. You should plan to depart on Sunday, February 3. Want to relax a little longer? The option to arrive earlier or stay later is available—for additional fees. Check out the full schedule for the weekend.

I would like to share a room with another attendee. How do I go about doing that?
Two attendees will share each room. When registering, you will have the option to tell us who you would like to room with. Not sure at that point? You can always tell us later.

I would like to not share a room. Can I have a room to myself?
That is definitely an option. Additional fees will apply. Please email info {at} beechretreat {dot} com for details.

Do I receive a discount if I drive, since I won’t need car service?
We welcome those who are driving in. You will receive a car pass for complimentary parking during your stay. There is no discount for not using the van service from the airport.

I bought a ticket, but now I can’t attend. Can I receive a refund?
Retreat passes are not refundable. They may be transferred before January 15 for a $25 fee.

Can I attend the retreat for a shorter period of time?
You are welcome any time, but the cost of the ticket will remain the same.

Is volunteer time available? Can I get a free retreat pass if I volunteer?
At this time we are not offering free retreat passes. We want you to sit back, relax, and enjoy your weekend. Leave the work to us.

I have food allergies. Will BEECH accommodate my dietary needs?
Absolutely! When you register, you will be asked if you have any special dietary needs. BEECH will do our best to accommodate.

I am interested in speaking. Whom should I contact?
We appreciate your interest! We are no longer accepting speaker proposals at this time. For future speaking opportunities, please contact speaker {at} beechretreat {dot} com.

I would like to have a sponsor-hosted event off-site if it doesn’t conflict with the retreat schedule. Is this allowed?
Out of respect for the official sponsors of BEECH, no sponsor events are allowed during the retreat unless approved by BEECH. Please refer to the BEECH Personal Sponsorship Guidelines.

Is shopping available on the island?
We are happy to report that Starbucks and lots of resort shopping are available on the island and accessible by the complimentary trolley service.

What happens when the 80 spots are filled? Will you open up additional spots?
BEECH is intentionally limited to selling only 80 tickets with the desire that those in attendance will leave with a wealth of new knowledge, stronger networking relationships, and empowered. We have established a waiting list in the event that one of the spots opens up and will secure those empty spots on first come, first served basis.
