Summit Location:
Jekyll Island Convention Center
75 Beachview Dr N,
Jekyll Island, GA 31527
(912) 635-6400

 

Few places are more inviting…

This may be the most stunning location to ever host KataCon. Jekyll Island provides dramatic ocean views, a wide variety of dining and shopping options, and as much activity or relaxation as you’d like before, during, and after the Summit. Because Jekyll Island is a protected Georgia State Park, the area is void of the typical trappings of a touristy beach locale. Commercialization has been closely managed to preserve the area’s beauty.

Airport and Transportation Tip: Brunswick’s Golden Isles Airport is the closest airport with a 20 minute commute, with Jacksonville airport approximately 45 minutes from the Island. We encourage you to rent a vehicle for you time on the Island if you choose a hotel away from the Jekyll Island Convention Center. This also allows you to explore the Island in your free time!

Lodging Tip: And because the Summit is held at the Convention Center, you can choose ANY hotel, AirB&B, VRBO on the Island. The Westin and Home2 Suites by Hilton (listed below) are the hotel closest hotels to the Convention Center with a 5-minute walk.

You, your family, and your work team will find Jekyll Island to be a rejuvenating retreat! If ever there was a time to bring your family to the Summit, this is it!
