Your clients have been everywhere and done everything. What can Charleston offer which may be different? We have the answers. JMC Charleston’s experience with incentive travel programs from both the United States and abroad is really the same – they have unknown expectations as to what they will experience in Charleston. The mystique makes it even more special.

We know what they want to see in Provence, Tuscany, Napa, Manhattan, Palm Beach and Newport. In Charleston, we look to design a program that offers the most exclusive trip that will match up with the level of your client’s sophistication.


Charleston features an inordinately large quantity of privately owned hotels. When thinking about boutique hotels, think Zero George, the Spectator, and the Wentworth Mansion.

Venerable mid-size hotels in the heart of the city include the Planter’s Inn, a Relais & Châteaux establishment, and the Market Pavilion Hotel, a member of Leading Hotels of America.

Larger hotels in the best parts of the city include Mills House Hotel, where General Robert E. Lee watched the battle of Fort Sumter, the new “mid-century modern” Dewberry Hotel, and to open this Winter, the Bennett Hotel, managed by Salamander Resorts.

A short drive north of Charleston will land you at Destination Hotel’s Wild Dunes Resort and forty minutes south of the city presents the stunning Sanctuary Hotel at Kiawah Island, where the Ocean Course has hosted tournaments such as the Ryder Cup, Senior PGA, PGA and again in 2020 the PGA.


For every season, there are a group of activities that are perfect for every group.

Water experiences include regattas, epic kayaking and champagne tastings on yachts.

Our cultivated relationships with the plantations make for access to many behind the scenes tours and viewings.

As Charleston is so known for our culinary history, the art of biscuit making in the middle of the only tea plantation in America is something your guests will never forget!

The homes and gardens available to us private offer your guests the insiders view. Private art and antique collections abound. Tea sandwiches and mimosas served on sterling trays along the way take your guests away. Antique shops and art galleries opened just for your group with a tour from their owners sets the tone of uniqueness.


Charlestonians have been known for over 300 years for their gracious entertainment abilities. We diligently work to create experiences, whether casual or formal, whether in manor home, garden or dockside, to continue the tradition.

Many programs love a theme and all of ours in Charleston do tie back to our history. Think Revolutionary Pirates at the Old Exchange….. Think of dinner on an aircraft carrier overlooking Charleston Harbor…..Think about arriving at a plantation by private yacht…the choice is yours.

The dance “The Charleston” started here, so think Gatsby and Speakeasy…or maybe you want to dine in a Charleston Garden – we have so many.

It’s not going to fit in the luggage.  Can they carry that on the plane?  Will they use that?  Will it fit?  Let JMC handle the details!

For every occasion, there should be a special gift!

Victorian fans for the ladies as they take a carriage ride through Charleston’s Historic District… engraved oyster knives for the BBQ and oyster roast at the plantation… lovely Blue Canton vases for the Board of Directors, copied from original pieces that came over as ballast in the 18th century… custom stationery for each guest, complete with monograms and an appropriate writing instrument. JMC Charleston takes great pride in suggesting and beautifully wrapping the ultimate amenity that your guests will forever cherish.
