2016 Florida Inns Sunshine Conference & ResNexus Rendezvous

About the Conference

Be in the sunshine...Get in the know

The 2016 Florida Sunshine Conference is the premier annual educational conference for innkeepers, designed and coordinated by the florida inns association.

Why should I attend?

THE ONE PLACE you will find solutions immediately applicable for business growth.

THE ONE EVENT where you can learn best practices and learn relevant new management skills.

THE WORKSHOPS will leave you with practical real life tips and techniques to accelerate your business.

The Sunshine Marketplace: Where it is all Happening

All exhibit booths will be placed in the same room as the general session, called the "Sunshine Marketplace". This beautifully designed area will be the home base for all conference attendees. Prepare to shop the market place, meet the sponsors, relax, meet the keynote speakers and much more!

We encourage you to invite your other innkeeper friends and use your influence to bring your fellow innkeepers to the 2016 Florida Sunshine Conference. This first annual inaugural gathering will be the first of it's kind and is sure to sell out.
