Meeting Professionals

Registration for Meeting Professionals and Florida Suppliers is now closed.

As a fully hosted planner you can attend at no cost and earn continuing education (CEU) credits while experiencing the best Florida has to offer. 

Do I Qualify?*
– Are you a meeting professional that does business in Florida, or anticipates doing business in Florida?
– Are you a meeting decision maker, a third party sourcer or part of a decision making team?

The Encounter Process
About six weeks prior to the show, the appointment requesting period will begin. Each appointment book includes up to 31 scheduled one-on-one appointments. 

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 appointment 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 mobile device, computer or directly in the Florida Encounter app.

*Please note all information provided in registration will build your profile that is visible to all confirmed suppliers. Based on the details you provide, your registration & admittance to all Florida Encounter events will be approved or denied. Please allow two weeks to receive a response. VISIT FLORIDA reserves the right to deny registration for this event if you do not meet the qualification criteria.
