ARE MEALS PROVIDED?
Complimentary breakfast is available at our select hotel, The Floridan Palace, and lunch will be provided by us –but not your typical “conference” lunch. Everyone attending will be provided a voucher to enjoy lunch “their way” across the street at Heights Public Market. Heights Public Market is a food-lover’s dream and a truly innovative concept in Tampa. The 22,000 sq-ft industrial market features an open floor plan with communal seating surrounded by restaurants showcasing the top chefs and restaurateurs in the Bay Area.
