Meeting Professionals

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. 

Qualified meeting professionals are fully hosted to attend Florida Encounter, including (air)travel, ground transportation, hotel accommodations, all networking events, a full appointment book, and optional pre or post FAMs.

The registration process will take approximately 15 minutes to complete, as you will build your profile that is visible to the attending Florida Suppliers. You can come back as often as you want to finish the process. Please note that you are not considered fully registered until the Florida Encounter team reviews and approves your regsitration. You will receive an email approving or denying your registration within 5 days of submitting your registration. 

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.
