Myrtle Beach, SC Hotel Is Among the South's Best Destinations for International Meetings

Guests From Around the World Find Inspiration Among the Attractions of the Myrtle Beach Marriott Resort & Spa at Grande Dunes

MYRTLE BEACH, SC -- (Marketwired) -- 03/31/14 -- Myrtle Beach may enjoy an established reputation as an ideal vacation spot, but its horizons are about to expand. ConventionSouth magazine recently ranked the city among its top seven destinations for international meetings, thus opening it up to a whole new league of travelers. And when it comes to meetings in Myrtle Beach, no property can combine pleasure with productivity quite so well as the Myrtle Beach Marriott Resort & Spa at Grande Dunes.

When the editors at ConventionSouth compiled their 2014 list of "The South's Best Destinations for International Meetings," they considered several criteria. Among them, the city had to offer world-class meeting spaces and lodging. And in these respects, this business hotel in Myrtle Beach easily shines.

Business travelers considering other Myrtle Beach, South Carolina hotels would be hard-pressed to find the same caliber of service available at this property. A full-service business center affords guests copy, fax and secretarial service along with overnight delivery for last-minute deadlines, while epicurean pleasures are attended to by creative and satisfying event menus. Most importantly, the property offers 45,000 square feet of flexible conference space in Myrtle Beach. Eleven meeting rooms include the Atlantic Ballroom, which can welcome up to 1,665 guests, as well as several other options that feature natural light. And, in a nod to the high-tech needs of modern travelers from around the world, state-of-the-art A/V equipment and services are available in all meeting rooms.

When delegates aren't hard at work, they can relax within the most comfortable accommodations in Myrtle Beach, SC. Cotton-rich linens, custom duvets and marble bathrooms create a luxurious atmosphere in the guest rooms. And with the beach just outside the window -- not to mention golf, tennis, swimming and more available on property -- there's never a shortage of things to do.

Groups that would like to experience this exciting destination first-hand are invited to contact the hotel's sales department directly at 1-843-692-3709 or [email protected], mention this announcement and receive a 20-percent discount off the A/V services at their next meeting.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.
