Designing Immersive Event Experiences in Florida

Date: Wednesday, February 16th 
Time: 1PM ET | 10AM PT | 12PM CT

Group experiences that are integrated into a destination create lasting memories for attendees. That means designing an event with touchpoints that are integral to the destination.

Our webinar will focus on designing experiences that are uniquely Florida, whether that’s taking a small group out on a boat with a biologist to tag sharks for research, or offering aspiring musicians in the group the chance to play with local performers. From moonshine making to ghost orchid tours to birding in the Everglades, the possibilities are endless.

All attendees will receive 1 CEU from The Events Industry Council.

P.S. Can’t make it? Sign-up and we’ll send you a copy of the recording.
