Florida Encounter has been in existence since 1980 and is one of the longest running appointment tradeshows in the MICE industry. The program features appointments between fully hosted, qualified planners with proven business for Florida and Florida suppliers.

A well-rounded program, it promotes one-stop shopping for planners to become familiar with Florida’s premier meetings and event destinations, hotels and services. This program is further designed to showcase Palm Beach County, the host properties and host destination!

Based on the success of last year, Florida Encounter (serving the meetings industry) and Florida Huddle (serving the international travel trade industry) will be held concurrently.
