Glen Cove Mansion Launches Roaring 20s Meeting Package On Long Island's
Historic Gold Coast, Setting for “The Great Gatsby”


Glen Cove, Long Island, New York, May 2013 … The I.A.C.C.-certified Glen Cove Mansion Hotel and Conference Center, arguably the nation’s first dedicated conference center hotel, was the original summer estate of the historic Pratt family of Standard Oil and later The Pratt Institute.  The former manor house was once one of 600 palatial mansions that once made up Long Island’s legendary Gold Coast, made forever famous when F.S. Fitzgerald used it as the setting for The Great Gatsby.
 
Today an award-winning hotel and conference center, Glen Cove Mansion has introduced their “Roaring 20s Meeting Package” in honor of this heritage.  The package includes all the components of the Mansion Meeting Package, Glen Cove Mansion’s version of the complete meeting package, and a unique “Trail of Gatsby” scavenger hunt that can be used as a teambuilding initiative.  The Trail of Gatsby introduces conferees to “East Egg” and “West Egg” – they were real places but with different names, the Valley of the Ashes, the locations for Daisy Buchanan’s house and of course Gatsby’s, and more that F. Scott Fitzgerald “borrowed” from Long Island’s Gold Coast to create the setting for The Great Gatsby.
