February 3 - 5, 2025 | World Equestrian Center | Ocala, FL

Networking at Florida Encounter Made Easy!

VISIT FLORIDA makes it easy for you to connect with other participants at the event and schedule appointments. You can also integrate other elements of your agenda in your calendar. Below are instructions on how to build your personal schedule with interesting meeting partners and exciting content.


Quick and easy registration

Your digital event business card

When registering as a participant, make sure you choose the correct participant category and agree to our privacy policy. Enter your company profile and personal data.

After your registration is approved, you will receive an e-mail confirmation and can immediately start networking with other participants. 

The Appointment Requesting Period opens two weeks prior to the show. During that period, you can request your one-on-one appointments. You will not be able to see the requests made by others.

All requests will be matched by our algorithm. Mutual requests first, then requests made by Meeting Planners and Florida Suppliers. Once you receive your schedule, you are able to add, reschedule or cancel any of your appointments via your Encounter Dashboard.
