About Florida Encounter

Florida Encounter is the premier appointment-based trade show showcasing all the Sunshine State has to offer for global and domestic meetings, conventions and incentive professionals. One of VISIT FLORIDA’s signature events, it provides a simple one-stop-shop solution for qualified meeting professionals to meet individually with many of Florida’s premier meetings suppliers, including CVBs, resorts, hotels, convention centers, DMCs and other service companies.

Qualified meeting, convention and incentive professionals will discover all Florida meeting destinations, many service companies and dozens of meeting properties at this exclusive appointment-only event. Planners are fully hosted, including (air) travel, all events and deluxe accommodations.

Registration and exhibiting cost for Florida suppliers is one of the lowest in the industry, compared with similar appointment shows. Maintaining a true one-to-one ratio between buyers and suppliers ensures that appointment books are as full as possible for all attendees.

Whether you are a Florida supplier, a meeting planner or active in incentive travel; you will have the most productive time of your year at Florida Encounter.

In a continuous effort to support the Sunshine State’s competitiveness through tourism, the goal of Florida Encounter is to create opportunities for meeting planners to meet one-on-one with Florida suppliers and therefore provide a  return on investment (ROI) to Florida by way of increased business travel and bookings in the state of Florida.
