Hyde Beach pool at SLS South Beach Hotel.
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. — While Leadership Summits provide the latest information on industry trends, the other half of the event revolves around recreation and networking.
The 2016 LCT Leadership Summit at the SLS South Beach Hotel, May 22-24, includes a variety of parties and gatherings, including events at nearby art-deco hotels close to Miami Beach’s famed Lincoln Road District.
Upon arrival Sunday, as the SLS Hotel’s Hyde Beach just happens to be the site of Rapture Sundays, one of Miami’s hottest pool parties, with the motto “save water, spray champagne.” Hyde Beach at the SLS Hotel is also the location of Sunday night’s Welcome Reception and Dinner.
Attendees to the 2013 Summit will recall the festive, poolside dinner at Hyde Beach, a memorable gathering to be repeated with this year’s opening reception.
Redbury Hotel rooftop lounge, Miami Beach.
At 10:30 p.m., the group will cross Collins Avenue for an after party and dessert at the penthouse at the Redbury Hotel
. The swanky penthouse offers sweeping architectural views of the iconic oceanfront hotels and the palm-lined beach and ocean beyond.
On Monday night, the social vibes ratchet up a notch at 6:30 p.m. with the traditional cocktail-making contest, followed by the Havana Nights White Party & Pig Roast. Both events will be held at the Raleigh Hotel’s outdoor Oasis, a short stroll on the boardwalk from the SLS Hotel.
Attendees can come as they are to the Oasis dinner with a laid-back, beach vibe. Just steps from the ocean, the Oasis is the perfect setting to sip a cocktail, mingle with peers, play games and enjoy a delectable dinner. And as is custom for Summits, attendees are encouraged to wear their “Havana whites” wardrobes in true LCT tropical tradition.
All social events include complimentary beer, wine and cocktails (mojitos? Cadillac margaritas?)
Other recreational highlights: Get your game on with corn hole, giant Jenga and ping pong; dine on a mouth-watering buffet, featuring Cajun China roasted pig and grilled local fish taco station; try a hand-rolled cigar from a skilled cigar roller.
