Visit us at the Key West Marriott Beachside Hotel

The Lodging Association's Annual Tradeshow & Hospitality Expo is held every year.  Previously held in November it has been moved to August during a slower time for our hoteliers, giving them the opportunity to leave their properties for a longer period of time during the day. Running over 15 years, the show is the longest running trade show in the Florida Keys and the only show that focuses on the Hospitality and Lodging industries.

This year's event will be held at the Key West Marriott Beachside Hotel on August 30th, 2017.  Admission to the Trade Show is free and open to everyone in the Lodging, Hospitality & Business Community.  Show hours are 11:30am - 6:30pm. 

Lunch will be served in the foyer from 12:00pm - 2:00pm.  Cost for the lunch is $25 per person and a reservation must be made in advance so the hotel can provide the appropriate amount of food.  Wristbands will be given to those paying for lunch and high top tables will be available throughout the show floor or you can choose to walk around with your food.
