YOUR WEEK IN THE SUN:
June 30 - July 3, 2013
Continuing the tradition of holding its conference where the best venues of the year are, the 23rd Annual ALSD Conference and Tradeshow will visit Orlando and Tampa in 2013.
Located in Orlando is the Amway Center, home of the Orlando Magic, considered by many to be one of the top arenas in the world. Our college division is included in the venue tours this year with a day trip to the University of Central Florida in Orlando. "We looked at a half-dozen cities very closely, and we chose Orlando," says Bill Dorsey, Chairman of the ALSD. "Amway Center is a top-flight arena; we have not been in the Southeast for several years; and Orlando is one of the top family destination sites on the planet."
"In addition, there are more than 1,600 hotels in Orlando," continues Dorsey. "We selected the brand new Orlando Hilton which was rated by various travel sites as the third highest rated hotel in the area. This is one of the top three hotels we have ever gone to and the rates are outstanding."
Besides Orlando, the ALSD will also take a day trip to Tampa, home of the Buccaneers' Raymond James Stadium and the Lightning’s Tampa Bay Times Forum. "This is a short, easy drive and well worth the trip," states Dorsey. "People will be impressed with what Tampa has to offer. As usual, we are providing something for everyone."
