Don't miss the best party of 2020! It's winter elsewhere, but in Central Florida, it's all sun 'n' games. Join us for another fantastic Central Florida Mensa Regional Gathering! We'll be reprising our amazing hospitality (ALL lunches and dinners catered by local restaurants, ALL breakfasts held in the hotel's dedicated breakfast restaurant, 24-hour hospitality with wide selection of snacks, drinks, fresh fruits and veggies, and more), stellar speaker tracks (speaker tracks running throughout the RG), tons of tournaments and scheduled games, trivia, etc., and the best company you could ask for -- Mensans! As the RG is being held over the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday weekend, we're holding a four-day RG (yippee!!) starting Friday evening and running through Monday afternoon. All meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided beginning with Friday dinner and ending with Monday lunch (plus a time-and-date-TBD chocolate party that is totally epic). And this year, our sun 'n' games will be beachfront! At the International Palms Resort in Cocoa Beach, you're literally steps away from the sand between your toes. We can't guarantee beachgoing weather in January, but we can always hope! Room rates are $89 for a room with one king or two double beds, and the rate is the same for single, double, triple, or quadruple occupancy. Room upgrades are available to two-story lofts with kitchenette and sleeper sofa, or third-floor oceanfront suite with private balcony and sleeper sofa. Questions or problems? Email, or call/text (407) 590-9362.


We will be adding information about other Florida RGs as we research this. If you know about one, please contact us with information about it, and we will happily add it here.
