The full schedule includes:

Port Tour 4:00 PM - 5:15 PM (limited to first 80 registrants)

A relaxing, insightful journey by boat to see the physical world of imports and exports first-hand. There is nothing quite like being on the water and observing Florida’s largest port and the largest economic engine on this side of the state. The two-storey vessel has an air-conditioned downstairs and a covered top deck. This tour is an excellent opportunity to learn and to continue networking with your fellow conference attendees.

Awards Dinner 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Our favorite quote from last year’s dinner - “That was fun!” Chris Hamilton, Shutts & Bowen.

We aim to have all of our guests repeat this quote for themselves at the 2019 Annual Awards Dinner. It will be a high-energy evening planned to inspire, motivate, and empower. Hear from one of Florida’s leading woman, Alex Sink, clap along as our International Person of the Year receives her award, and congratulate our two university scholarship winners. There is something for everyone at this Dinner. The best part – you will be there!
