IT'S TIME TO REFRESH IN PARADISE
July 27-30, 2021
(optional July 30 - Aug 2 add-on)
Fully refundable until May 31, 2021*
In November 2019, we chartered a plane to a secret international location and told 80 marketing and event professionals to pack for 5 days, 65 degrees, and bring a passport and meet us at JFK. We then revealed that we were going to..... TUSCANY for a 5-day Haute Dokimazo. Watch our 12-minute documentary here!
But we didn't create Secret Family Reunion to be a new event that just becomes the same thing every other year. Now we have to reimagine it COMPLETELY. So this time we decided that...
... maybe the location isn't the secret but everything else is!
That's right, the Haute Dokimazo team is thrilled to announce a partnership with Atlantis Paradise Island, The Bahamas, to be our host location for the 2021 Secret Family Refresh.
Mark your calendar and plan your week because the next Haute Dokimazo Secret Family Reunion has been reimagined not to be the conference you WANT, but to be the conference you NEED:

Frequently Asked Questions
When is the trip taking place?
The conference portion is July 27-30, with an optional add-on July 30-Aug 2.
What is happening July 27-30th?
Plan your trip to arrive in Nassau around 4 pm Eastern on the 27th, but at least get there by 7 pm for the opening night surprise. You will be picked up at the airport on July 27th via private or group transportation. The 28th, 29th, and 30th are the "conference" part. We won't tell you what that means, but there will be plenty of peer-led sessions and loads of adventures and surprises. On the afternoon of the 30th, you are welcome to invite your family to join us for a special afternoon activity and... let's call it "dinner." Download the brochure. (The brochure still doesn't reveal any secrets. Sorry!)
What's the weekend all about?
If you have family, friends, or just want to refresh yourself solo, 'Aunt Lantis' invites you to stay awhile longer at her big pink house! For anyone joining us for the weekend, have them arrive by 2 pm on Friday, July 30th for our 3 pm Family kickoff. Atlantis is offering a $400 all-in bundle deal for Friday through Monday to include 3 nights, breakfast and lunch, waterpark access, marine encounters, a beach "Haute-spitality" cabana, and more! If it's just you, or a couple with no kids, you are also most welcome to stay and play - this is an inclusive and fun experience for all!
Does your family or friends want their own room (or you want them to have their own space) for the weekend?
No worries, we'll extend that $420 all-in price for these three nights to them. Thank you, Atlantis! They must register through our reg page, they cannot call in and make their reservation any other way.
Can I just stay one extra night on Friday instead of the whole weekend?
You betcha! Friday night add-on will be $196 all-in to include taxes, resort fees. Tipping your housekeeper in cash is Mudda Sick (slang for freakin' awesome).
Is this a business conference?
It sure is! But it's like no conference you've ever been to! Haute Dokimazo creates Spontaneous Think Tanks, so all content is created from the challenges you are trying to solve with your event program or business. Business content includes over 5 hours of direct peer-to-peer educational sessions, fam trip-like experiences to explore unique locations, and business connections with corporate, association, supplier, and independent marketing and event professionals who can support your event and marketing programs.
How do I get considered to become a participant?
This year, we believe everyone needs a refresh, so all participants are welcome with no limitations except agreeing to the Code of Conduct. We believe in the power of intimate gatherings, so the business portion of the event will be capped at 100 participants.
How much does it cost and what do I get?
The conference fee is $2,500 USD and includes everything from the moment you arrive at Nassau Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS) to the moment you leave the Atlantis Paradise Island resort on July 30th - that's accommodations, meals, activities, peer conversations, useful education, swag, surprises, secrets, laughter, relaxation, refreshment, and memories. And probably more stuff we haven't thought of yet. If you choose to stay the weekend, your $420 add-on includes breakfast, lunch, accommodations, and a selection of activities from July 30th-Aug 2nd.
Is it refundable? We understand that things are still a bit uncertain. We will offer 100% refunds (minus reg site/credit card fees) until May 31, 2021. After May 31st, if the event cannot take place due to global health concerns, refunds will be given if the event is canceled. If you voluntarily decide that you are unable to attend after May 31st, your registration fee is transferrable to another participant.
Can my family come early?
Absolutely! If you can handle being apart from them while they play on the beach and you are off in a secret location doing secret things, they are welcome to join you. Their meals and activity fees while you are at the conference, will be your responsibility.
What if I don't have kids?
If you do not have children, the two-day add-on can be extended to the Adults-Only accommodations at The Cove, or you can stay in the same room you've been in for the duration of the conference. You still have access to all of the amenities being provided by Atlantis during the two-day extension.
Why is the location not a secret this time?
2021 is a year in transition. As we welcome business travel back into our lives, we thought it prudent to take things slow and give our families a break, too. So we've crafted this experience to give your professional life a boost, give your spirit a lift, and give you the opportunity to share the joy with your family, too.
But why is it still called "Secret"?
Don't you worry your Haute little head about that - Secrets abound!! Atlantis is the Lost City, after all, and we have PLENTY of incredible secrets to reveal throughout your experience. I mean, we didn't even give you a detailed agenda, did we? You'll have to find out what's happening when you get there. It's still a leap of faith (oh hey, that's the name of the mega waterslide, isn't it?). You still have to put your trust in us that we are creating an experience that will benefit you professionally and personally. And we promise that we are.
What kind of physical shape do I need to be in for this experience?
I like to say, "I'm in shape! Round is a shape!" But seriously, the facility is ADA accessible and there will always be activity options to match your desired exertion level. We have land activities for the non-swimmers and can accommodate all food allergy concerns.
How should I dress?
Beach casual is the name of the game for this conference, but please bring one "dining out" outfit for an evening affair. Swimsuits welcome, but not required. (But it is a beach resort.) Daily high temperatures are around 89°F, rarely falling below 86°F or exceeding 92°F. Daily low temperatures are around 79°F, rarely falling below 75°F or exceeding 82°F.
Do I need a passport to get to the Bahamas?
U.S. citizens are generally required to present a valid U.S. passport when traveling to The Bahamas, as well as proof of anticipated departure from The Bahamas.
Do you need a negative COVID test for entry?
Yes. For current travel guidelines, please visit: https://bs.usembassy.gov/covid-19-information/
You'll also need some other things to travel to the Bahamas, read about them here.
How do I get my venue/destination considered for a future Secret Family adventure?
We are currently exploring locations all across the world for our 2023 trip, and are open to locations that can host 40 to 85 participants. With the large gathering limitations constantly in flux, we are very open to exploring many different opportunities and unique locations. If we're going to charter a plane, we prefer to be within 10 hours of California, Miami, or New York by air. If we will be using other means to get to your location, we can discuss other options! Reach out to Nicole@hautecompanies.com to offer your location.
Are there any sponsorship opportunities?
We're looking for one Secret Welcome Party sponsor for something amazing we want to do! The cost of this experience is $40,000. If you happen to have $40,000 burning a hole in your pocket, reach out to Nicole@hautecompanies.com and she'll be happy to take it off your hands. Looking for something a little smaller? We'd love for you to sponsor someone else's registration. That can be found at checkout on our Splash reg page!
