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!
