Following our annual Conference Launch event, attendees gathered for Opening Night in the Networking Center where attendees were able to interact with nearly 40 exhibitors providing goods and services to the Florida tourism industry. Attendees then enjoyed the Sunday Dinner in the beautiful Imperial Ballroom of the Trump National Doral. It was a great opportunity to catch up with colleagues and to greet first-time attendees and new members.
Conference attendees enjoyed the opportunity to network over a Dutch Treat dinner at one of four premiere restaurants in Downtown Doral. FAA Board Members served as hosts as industry colleagues ate together and shared their success and challenges at their attractions and businesses.
After the conclusion of the Conference Finale, attendees were treated to an evening at the historic Miami Seaquarium! General Manager, and former FAA Board Member, Eric Eimstad and his wonderfully hospitable "Team Blue" had an evening planned just for the FAA complete with animal encounters, authentic Latin cuisine, and a special Flipper show! As if that wasn't enough to top off Celebrating 70, Firepower Displays presented a spectacular fireworks show to the awe of everyone in attendance. The FAA then celebrated its birthday with the cutting of the cake!
A big thank you to the Miami Seaquarium Team for putting on such a great program! It was a true display of what Florida attractions are all about.
