Notes From the Event Director - Location, Location, Location


Location, Location, Location

Jonathan here again, and I’m writing to you shortly after getting back from Fort Lauderdale! No, you didn’t already miss Helm Conference, I was down there to scout everything out in preparation for the event (which is Oct 3-5, in case you forgot!) After a day of flying and a quick car ride from the airport to the hotel, I was ready to see what Fort Lauderdale had to offer.

I had a great visit with the team at the Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort, and they are eager to welcome the best of the maritime industry to Helm Conference. The meeting rooms look great, and the guest rooms are not too shabby either. If you’re facing the ocean you’ll be treated to an uninterrupted expanse of sand and waves – a visual hardship, I know.

The hotel has multiple restaurants, a Starbucks, and a pool with a private walkway over to the beach (you’re literally steps away from sand and surf). Even closer though is the great content we’ll have for you at the conference itself, which we will have more details on very, very soon. We’ve got hot topics, speakers from industry leaders and three streams of content depending on your function. Needless to say, it’s going to be an incredible blend of learning and fun, so be sure to get your tickets if you haven’t already. Did I mention that we’re in our final weeks of Early Bird pricing? Don’t miss out – register now!



In the meantime, here are some pictures of my trip to whet your appetite. Don’t forget that we have a limited room block, so get your tickets and your rooms early to avoid missing out. See you in October!
