welcome reception

Shuttles for the Welcome Reception on Thursday night, sponsored by Greater Fort Lauderdale CVB, will depart from the Convention Center Lower Lobby at 6:30 SHARP. We know you’re going to “fall in love” with Fort Lauderdale’s Antique Car Museum, one of the sites where The Bachelor was filmed in 2017!

what to pack


GTM attire ranges from business to resort casual. Business casual is suggested for all appointments and Boardroom presentations (no shorts). Resort casual is acceptable for all evening receptions. 
P.S. Don’t forget your business cards!

meet your match contest


At check in, each attendee will be given HALF of an image from Ladera Resort. It’s your mission to complete the image by finding its other half in the hands of another event attendee. Once you’ve met your match, follow the contest rules to be entered in a drawing to win a three-night stay, including complimentary airport transfers, breakfasts, and one complimentary dinner at the beautiful Ladera Resort. Both travel advisors and suppliers are eligible to win. We wish you luck!
