Join industry leaders to discuss current and future issues to help drive the industry forward, enjoy a spirited awards ceremony that celebrates four industry leaders (Roy Porter, Connie Riley, Robin Selden, and one more surprise recipient) and learn from keynote Christina Matteucci, executive director of David Beahm Experiences and TEDx speaker. Enjoy the music of four time Grammy award winner Tomasito Cruz, too!

Christina Matteucci pioneers an integral role within the special event industry as Number Two to famed event designer David Beahm. Now in her eighteenth year of collaboration with David, she is uniquely positioned to provide valuable, first-hand experience with the importance of building—from the ground up—a functional and sustainable team to support a growing hospitality talent. During her session, she will address the singular relationship between Number Ones and their teams from both sides of the coin.

Christina will explore how modeling successful partnerships in the workplace sets a precedent for rewarding collaboration in society and bridges generational divides. She will tackle the queries she receives from hospitality principals such as, "How do I find a Christina? Why is your turnover so low? How can I prevent my employees and associates from taking what I teach them and venturing out on their own?"

At The W South Beach.
Lunch, of course, will also be served.
