Our format for the convention has changed. We will begin on Sunday evening, April 15 with a Welcome Reception, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. The convention will focus on in-depth business meetings with trade partners and APDA member meetings. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings will end with networking receptions. The last convention event will be the Closing Convention Reception on Wednesday evening, April 18. There will not be a banquet at the convention.

The Doral is conveniently located just 30 minutes from the Miami International Airport and 45 minutes from the Ft. Lauderdale International Airport.
