SPIN, The Don Cesar and Visit St. Pete/Clearwater
Join Forces for SPINCon 2018

 SPINCon 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018 at The Don Cesar.

“Visit St. Pete/Clearwater worked hard to come up with a great package for SPINCon 2018 and we are thrilled to be working with them.”  said Tracey Smith, Executive Director of SPIN. “To get our members excited we held a ‘Where in the World is SPINCon’ contest online, dropping clues all week. One clever member guessed the city from the first clue and another guessed the hotel on clue 3!”

Each SPINCon is designed to be unique, however the focus is always on the whole meeting professional. This year members will be asked to submit session topic ideas which will be voted on – embodying SPIN’s mantra of ‘by our members, for our members.’ The SPINCon Planning Committee will finalize the theme and the program.          

Together Again

“I am so excited that we were selected to host this year’s conference,” said Todd Gehrke, Director of Sales, The Don Cesar. “I worked with the SPINCon team when at a previous venue and am glad to be working with them again.”  Suzanne Hackman, Director of Meetings & Conferences at VSPC said, “we are thrilled to be bringing SPINCon back to Florida, and we will work hard make this year’s experience very memorable. The entire hospitality community is looking forward to working with the SPINCon Planning Committee to showcase our area to SPIN members.”

We are not all things to all people, we're just for you--for us--senior-level planners. By ‘senior’ we mean you’ve been in the industry for 10 years or more. Over the years you’ve likely dealt with robust budgets and belt-tighteners. You’ve had a really good boss or two, maybe a couple bad ones, and now you might even be the boss - running your own company. You may have fretted about losing your job or maybe you’ve actually lost one… or two--it’s okay, so have some of us.

 

Here’s the thing: Whether you’ve got reason to celebrate or vent, whether you need solutions or have solutions, or if you simply want to be with people who get it,  SPIN is your place!

 

Testimonial

"Wanted to reach out and say CONGRATS on SPIN’s anniversary! It’s hard to believe the organisation is already 10 years old; it’s a phenomenal group … and garners SUCH massive amount of  experience, wisdom; Only wish I was close enough to enable attendance at some events!" ~Dawn Farrell CMP, CEM - Owner / Managing Director, Farrell Events~
