MIAMI/SOUTH FLORIDA Addressing topics such as why shorter events may be smarter events, sponsorship best practices, and engaging multicultural audiences, the speakers at BizBash Live: Florida will cover issues important to a variety of event professionals.
The educational portion of the annual expo, scheduled for May 16 at the Fort Lauderdale Convention Center, consists of the Event Innovation Forum and a workshop series with speakers discussing the latest ideas, inspiration, and strategies for executing top-level events. New this year is the Masterclass, an in-depth look at a subject limited to a select group of attendees. The event will offer two Masterclasses: one on social media and the other on audiovisual production.
This year’s speakers have worked on South Florida’s biggest events—from the South Beach Wine & Food Festival to the Intercontinental Make-A-Wish Ball to Hispanicize.
For the first time at the Florida show, attendees can earn credit toward CSEP re-certification through a partnership with ILEA, and credit toward CPCE certification through a partnership with NACE. Attendees can register for the forum here.
