YPO FORUM RETREATS IN PARADISE
Young Presidents' Organization members are invited to host forum and chapter retreats the Belize Ocean Club Adventure Resort. The exclusive, YPO forum retreat package can be designed for 12 to 120 members and includes full-service accommodations and adventures. The package includes accommodations, meals, activities, and optional moderators including resort owner and fellow business leader, Bill Poston.
YPO forums will enjoy luxury suites, each with individual full bath, living room, balcony and kitchen. Each room can be outfitted with one king bed or two twin beds. There are one and two bedroom suite options available.
Belize Ocean Club Adventure Resort also offers an exclusive 2-acre private island, PADI 5-Star Dive Shop, and an adventure center. The resort offers full destination management services, making it easy to plan your perfect YPO retreat.
