This year the Annual Southeastern Florida Wall & Ceiling Contractor’s Association Convention and Trade Show will take place at the OMNI Hotel at Champion’s Gate outside Orlando, Fla.

In conjunction with this year’s show, there will be the Annual Golf Tournament on Friday, July 15 on the nationally renowned International Course. The organization will continue with its history of providing an excellent golf experience for all who register.   

In addition to the show and golf outing, the association is well known for its educational opportunities for contractors and field personnel alike. FWCCA is currently inviting industry manufacturers and service provides to take advantage of participating in its annual educational forum. Manufacturers are encouraged to present a one- or two-hour program on either July 15 or 16 to demonstrate new products, technological updates, standard reviews, etc., with the Florida members.

However, there is a full convention registration fee for any individual wishing to take advantage of the entire three-day event, which includes educational classes, social networking sessions, President’s Reception, lunch in the exhibit hall, and a fun Saturday night closing Theme Party.
