2023 Conference News

CS+TSE Wraps 2022 Show, Looks Toward 2023

Here at Special Events we are already looking toward 2023, when we are back in the first quarter of the year and ready to surprise and delight everyone who attends our conference and tradeshow.

The Special Event 2023

We’ll be heading to sunny Florida March 27–30, 2023 and the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC), a short 10-mile, 15-minute drive from the Orlando airport and with easy walkability to area hotels, restaurants, and entertainment options. As you read this, we at Special Events will have just returned from a site visit—with that, we will be ready to start planning your immersive experience, from session rooms, to evening events, to exhibit hall browsing!

What’s new?

Big news for meeting planners and wedding pros! Recognizing that event planners cover myriad bases when engaging potential clients, The Special Event will be placing a keen eye on the needs of meeting planners in 2023, launching a new track that speaks specifically to that sector of the industry.

Additionally, while wedding education has always been a big part of The Special Event, in 2023, we are making it a priority to ensure that you have the information you need to excel. Watch for other association partnerships to deepen and expand upon the great content you expect when you attend The Special Event.
