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 Tampa, the host property and host destination!

This year, for the first time ever, Florida Encounter (serving the meetings industry) and Florida Huddle (serving the international trade trade industry) will be held concurrently.
