The widely anticipated Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association (FRLA) Broward Chapter’s Hospitality Showcase, will be held on Thursday, October 15, 2015 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale • Broward County Convention Center, on the same day as the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Bureau Annual Marketing Plan Luncheon. This annual event attracts more than 500 hotel and hospitality industry leaders. Each year 30 booths are reserved for local cultural organizations.
This is the seventh year that the FRLA is hosting this trade show and partnering with the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Once again this year, Broward Cultural Division is coordinating the 30 booths available to Broward-based cultural organizations. These booths will be located in the pre-function area adjacent to the ballroom. The Expo will be in the Floridian Ballroom A. Guests enter and gather in Ballroom A for the luncheon. They will be invited to come early so they can learn about all of your amazing organizations.
