The 2019 IBPI Regional Meeting will be held at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort in Orlando, FL on March 19-21, 2019.
IBPI will pay for one room for each dealer at the Grand Floridian on March 19 and March 20. In order to qualify for this free room, you must attend all of the Regional Meeting events.
The Regional Meeting will begin with a Welcome Reception on Tuesday March 19 from 7-9pm at the hotel. Come join us for an evening of food and networking with fellow IBPI Members, Board of Directors and Vendors. The evening will conclude with an ice cream social while we watch the Disney Fireworks.

Wednesday evening we will hand out Disney park passes that will allow your entry into the Magic Kingdom after 5pm. The passes will only be good for March 20, 2019. IBPI will provide one pass for each member attending the Regional Meeting. You are welcome to purchase additional passes for any guests that may be traveling with you. Disney has set up a website for our event and you may purchase tickets as well as get additional information at this site.
Following breakfast, we will wrap up the Regional Meeting with a half day schedule on Thursday. We will have you out in time to grab some lunch and head to the airport or stick around and go to the parks.
