It’s Not Too Early to Prepare for the 2018 Midwinter Executive Conference

Hotel and Registration Process

Almost on the heels of a successful 2017 Midwinter Executive Conference in Scottsdale, it is time to start thinking ahead to the next executive conference, scheduled January 26-29, 2018, in Miami.

Much of what was so wonderful about this year’s conference will be back next year: The chance to connect with more than 1,000 of your industry colleagues, the opportunity to meet face to face with more than 70 potential industry partners, and the chance to play a round of golf on an award-winning course, this time the National Doral Miami.

Two things will be new next year:

First, there will be a fresh look in the keynote and conference sessions on all the cutting-edge issues that will impact you in 2018 and beyond.

Second, there is expected to be high demand for rooms and suites at the headquarter hotels: The National Doral Miami and the Provident Doral at the Blue Miami. Compare your hotel options (PDF).

Securing your hotel:

To assure that attendees have access to the conference hotels they want for the Midwinter Executive Conference, only paid conference registrants have access to accommodations at the National Doral or Provident at the Blue properties.  Registration and housing opens on  the following dates:
