Collaborate Marketplace 2015


Orlando, Florida | June 11-13, 2015 | Rosen Shingle Creek

WHAT IS COLLABORATE MARKETPLACE?
Collaborate Marketplace, an annual education conference and appointment-only trade show, is a highly respected event that brings together the most active planners, suppliers and experts in corporate/incentive and citywide meetings and events for three days of general sessions, boot camps, roundtables, workshops, pre-set appointments and networking. The appointment-only trade show is the business marketplace, where RFPs are placed, dates are secured and relationships are developed for future business. The focus on education at Collaborate Marketplace allows you to brush up on your skills, learn about trending topics, get great business advice from speakers and enjoy networking with other industry professionals.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
New this year: Pick your track! Choose between Collaborate Corporate/Incentive or Collaborate Citywide (1,000+ room nights on peak). Qualified planners pay a $200 registration fee that will be returned at the end of the conference if all appointments are kept. Our travel services team pays for and books flights and hotel rooms for planners. Destination representatives from across the country book their own travel upon registering. Event updates, including speaker information and appointment schedules, will be regularly updated on this site and communicated with registered attendees by email prior to the event. Once on-site in Orlando, Collinson Media staff members will explain the show’s format and keep everyone on track.

Suppliers, if you purchase a set of Collaborate Corporate/Incentive planner appointments, you have the option to purchase a set of Collaborate Citywide appointments for an additional fee. Both sets of appointments happen at the same time, therefore two individuals from your organization must be present to take the separate appointments. Citywide appointments guarantee that you will meet with qualified planners that need 1,000+ room nights on peak.
