2017 Focus Spring Conference
The AAA Four-Diamond Rosen Shingle Creek Resort – Site of the Focus Spring 2017 Conference
FOCUS Spring 2017 will take place at the magnificent, AAA Four-Diamond, Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando Florida. Ever stay at a Four-Diamond Resort? If not, a special experience awaits you because Four-Diamond status means that every aspect of the hotel is “highly upscale”. But here’s the best part…
Four-Diamond Hotels usually average $249 per night or higher – FOCUS’s rate – only $149 per night with no resort fees, free parking, free access to the hotel’s fitness center, free wireless internet in your sleeping (and in our lectures rooms), free local call from your room, 25% off all spa services and a golf package (18 holes, a cart and a bucket of balls) for only $50 at the hotel’s beautiful Arnold Palmer designed course. In addition, FOCUS will be holding an incredible evening welcome party out at the hotel’s amazing pool with a live Hawaiian show of dancers, fire eaters and live music on Thursday night, followed by our annual Night of Comedy and Karaoke on Friday night.
FOCUS Spring 2017 takes place on Friday May 5th and Saturday May 6th, 2017 with optional pre-conference workshops on Thursday May 4th. There will also be 4 post-conference workshops taking place on Sunday morning May 7th from 8am – 12 noon. Early May in Orlando is a beautiful time of year. Very low humidity, nice temperatures averaging 75 degrees during the day and 70 in the evening and wonderful breezes all the time. Even the pools at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort are heated, so you can swim all you want while with us.
FOCUS is a conference by and for the professionals it serves. No other group or association obsesses about keeping the costs of attending in mind like FOCUS. No other conference includes more in its registration fee and no other conference provides as much fun to go along with its educational agendas. What does that mean for you? It means a wonderful opportunity to combine a fantastic educational experience with an entertainment experience that makes for a tax-deductible mini-getaway of incredible value. Tons of lectures and tons of fun; all included in a great package price. Bring your significant-other for only $175 additional if they don’t need ceu’s or only $275 if they do, (a full $100 discount) and enjoy one of the most beautiful resorts in America in one of the most fun-filled vacation destinations – Orlando, Florida!
We know that many institutions have stopped reimbursing their professional staff to attend conferences; which is why FOCUS jumps through hoops to provide extraordinary value with so much included that the total costs to attend are more economical than the average vacation package that doesn’t include lectures and ceus or is tax-deductible ! Start your planning now. Make FOCUS a vacation for yourself and your loved one, or for your entire family. The $149 rate we procured at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel is for up to Quad occupancy and the hotel has free shuttles to Universal, Wet N’ Wild, Sea World, the Outlet Malls and a low-fee shuttle service to the Disney Theme parks. Make the experience happen for yourself. Meet now with your supervisor after reading our informative article “How to Get Reimbursed to Attend FOCUS” and remember that most of the aspects of your attending are tax-deductible !
