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. You will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with qualified MICE professionals and highlight your destination or property. 

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.

The Encounter Process
About six weeks prior to the show, the appointment requesting period will begin. Each appointment book includes up to 34 one-on-one appointments. Appointment are 12 minutes, with a three minute break to get to the next one.

This appointment requesting period will close about two weeks before the show. Appointment schedules are then filled based on attendee requests. This computer-generated process fills appointments schedules first with mutual requests, then requests made by planners, followed by requests made by suppliers.

Attendees will have the opportunity to directly communicate with other delegates. Attendees can add, reschedule, or cancel appointments. This can be done from any computer or in the Florida Encounter app.
