Networking Events

Business Facilities LiveXchange offers multiple networking events where you can unwind and get better acquainted with your fellow delegates and economic developers. All networking events are included with your approved registration.

Golf at Grande Dunes Resort
Monday, April 24th 11:00am-3:00pm
Time subject to change

Grande Dunes has been ranked among “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses,” and the Roger Rulewich design is better than ever following the conclusion of a renovation project that included new greens and an overhaul of every bunker on the course. Recently voted Myrtle Beach’s best golf course, Grande Dunes is one of the area’s most creative designs.

Opening Day Networking
Monday, April 24th 1:00pm – 5:00pm

Business Facilities LiveXchange kicks-off with a poolside opening day get-together at the Marina Inn at Grande Dunes where you can meet your fellow delegates, EDOs and speakers. Spend a few relaxing hours under the cabanas, overlooking the Intercoastal Waterway before the official program begins later in the evening.

Opening Night Welcome Reception
Monday, April 24th 6:30pm-7:30pm

Enjoy cocktails with all of the attendees at LiveXchange, including delegates, economic development organization representatives and speakers. The opening night reception is a great way to make new connections and catch up with your peers.

TopGolf Afterglow Event
Tuesday, April 25th 8:30pm-11:00pm

Get ready for a night of fun (and golf) as LiveXchange takes over TopGolf. Whether you’re an experienced golfer or have never played before, you’re guaranteed to have a great time with your fellow attendees during this very unique experience.

Up-Close Tour of Ripley’s Aquarium and Wine Tasting
Wednesday, April 26th 2:00pm-6:00pm

Soak up the beautiful colors of exotic fish and come face-to-fin with thousands of other fascinating creatures, from barracudas and sharks to jellies and eels at Ripley’s Aquarium of Myrtle Beach. You’ll tour the Marine Science Research Center and go behind the scenes to get a firsthand look at how Ripley’s Aquariums rescue and care for their animals. Then, you’ll take a Glass Bottom Boat ride where only three inches of glass separate you from the fascinating creatures and sharp-toothed predators that call the Dangerous Reef home. This unique view of the Reef is not to be missed. After Ripley’s Aquarium, we’ll stop at the Boardwalk Winery where you can enjoy a wine tasting of the local wines from Carolina Vineyards.

On-Site Receptions
Unwind and spend time with your peers during breakfast, lunch and dinner. Then, once the day is over, relax during our nightly cocktail receptions. These get-togethers allow all of our attendees to get to know each other better in a fun, relaxed setting.
