So, what should I wear?

Educational Sessions: Business Casual

We promise we'll give you time to hit the beach during the retreat, but please do not get a headstart by wearing beach attire to the learning events. Absolutely no shorts, T-shirts, flip-flops, sneakers, hats, or casual sundresses. Keep it classy.

Our recommendations: For women, we suggest slacks or a skirt with a blouse or nice top, or a dress. For men, we suggest light-weight dress pants or khakis and a shirt with a collar and buttons (i.e. golf shirt, short-sleeved button-up shirt or dress shirt).

Awards Dinner: Dressy Resort

You’re in Florida! Bring out the cute sundress that’s been hanging in your closet all year, but keep it elegant.

Our recommendations: For women, we suggest pants, dress jeans or a skirt with a blouse or dressy top, or a nice sundress with stylish sandals. For men, we suggest light-weight dress pants, khakis or nice jeans and a shirt with a collar and buttons (i.e. golf shirt, short-sleeved button-up shirt or dress shirt).

Poolside and at the Beach: Casual

Everything Speaks -- and that especially goes for your swimwear. Please wear a swimsuit with appropriate coverage to ensure that you don’t overexpose yourself to the sun (or your coworkers). For offsite water activities, the same standards of swimwear apply. Don’t forget a cover-up! T-shirts, shorts, hats, and flip-flops are perfectly fine for the pool and beach.

Our swimwear recommendations: For women, we suggest a tankini, one-piece, or swimwear that doesn’t overemphasize any body parts. For men, we suggest loose-fitting trunks -- please leave your Speedo and thong at home.

Other Offsite Activities: Casual

It's Florida, so that likely means it's hot! If you're heading to St. Armands Circle during your free time, dress like you would while shopping or dining in Columbus. This vibrant area is known for its numerous shops and restaurants!

Planning on visiting The Ringling Museum & Estate? Casual pants or a sundress is more than adequate at this Sarasota staple. Note that it's half indoor and half outdoor, so plan accordingly for weather.
