Over the weekend, Hurricane Irma caused much damage across the Caribbean and up Florida’s west coast. Our thoughts are with those who were affected by this catastrophic storm.
Fortunately, The Diplomat Beach Resort was spared Irma’s wrath and is ready to host the NIBA/PTDA Joint Industry Summit.
We talked to the management at The Diplomat as well as others in the area and are confident your experience will be spectacular. While the hotel did sustain some minor damage, primarily in landscaping, restoration crews are already at work. The hotel maintained power throughout the storm so all services are up and running. The hotel plans to be fully functional by this Saturday, September 16, a full 10 days before our arrival. The resort is hosting another large group this weekend.
The Everglades Tour will go on as planned.
Unfortunately, the course at the Fort Lauderdale Country Club did sustain some damage and there is some question as to whether it can be restored in time for the ICP Golf Outing. We will know more by the end of the week and will communicate what we learn immediately. Sponsorships, greens, foursome and club rental fees will be reimbursed if cancellation is necessary.
We are delighted to be able to welcome you to Hollywood, Florida, and The Diplomat Beach Resort for the NIBA/PTDA Joint Industry Summit!
