By Hibah Noor

Registration has opened for the 2019 Summit of the Americas, which takes place at a new venue, the Hyatt Regency Orlando, from March 24 to 27, 2019.

The three-day trade area features thousands of brands, according to the joint organizers, IAADFS and ASUTIL.

The executive conference sessions on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday mornings aim to provide informative presentations, adding even more value for participating attendees, they said.

The Opening Cocktail will be held on Sunday evening, followed by entertainment and dancing at the Cuba Libre Fun Night on Monday night.

On Tuesday night, the Summit Celebration begins with “cocktails, heavy hors d'oeuvres, and light entertainment, and continues later with higher-energy entertainment and dancing”.

Numerous exhibitor-hosted events will take place during the Summit.

The registration fee includes access to the three-day trade area, all official social events, and the Executive Conference Sessions on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday mornings.

Attendees are encouraged to register by January 25 for the lowest registration fee.
