When IWLA members gather they share ideas.
They tell war stories.
They give each other energy ... and they form friendships.
Of course, you'll hear inspirational speakers, eat gourmet food, and meet the industry's best supplier partners. But some of the best memories come from the lineup of social events:
The IWLA Chairman's Pool Party:
This event closes the convention Tuesday night, March 13. You'll boogie with some buccaneers, and the Pirate Pete Band during this night of celebration brought to you by returning Diamond Sponsor Impact Logistics. Kick back with some of the best regional cuisine, win prizes through your expo hall participation, and leave with a memento of your time in Tampa.
The IWLA Networking Reception Tailgate:
Wear your favorite team jersey or colors as Sustaining Diamond Sponsor Ztehcon invites you to a tailgate party Monday, March 12. Traditional foods and nontraditional games make for some of the best photo ops of the week. You won't want to miss watching (or being part of) a human Foosball experience. And, you may win some prizes at Zethcon Baggo.
The IWLA Welcome Reception:
Our traditional kickoff in the IWLA Expo Hall Sunday, March 11, promises you craft brews and pub foods. We've worked with the chef to create pairings featuring local beers and local ingredients. If you're interested in supporting IWLA with a sponsorship, this evening is still open.
The Duke Realty 2018 IWLA Golf Classic:
Make your plans to arrive in Tampa by Sunday morning, March 11, so you can participate with more than 100 other IWLA duffers during this annual event. From casual golfers to aces, this event is open to all. You can request a specific foursome of be placed with other golfers to make new friends. Hole and drink-cart sponsorships are still available.
There's always something fun happening at the IWLA Convention. Make your own memories. Rekindle old friendships and leave with new connections. We are excited to welcome you to the Saddlebrook Resort outside Tampa. Please contact IWLA if you have questions about registration or sponsorship: convention@IWLA.com; 847.813.4699.
Experienced IWLA members love to show first-timer attendees around, introducing them to members and showing them the ropes! First-time attendees are invited to special events (including a breakfast and an evening reception) help you make connections with other first-timers. You will also be matched with a convention-week "buddy" on whom you can rely to navigate the entire convention.
