FLAGGL 2017 is September 13-15th at JW Marriott, Orlando


This year’s fifth annual conference will be held September 13th – 15th, 2017 at the JW Marriott in Orlando, Florida. This year’s conference is expected to host a cross section of attendees from various industry institutions throughout the state of Florida. The annual conference will include general sessions, keynote addresses, breakout sessions and networking opportunities with other colleagues and SBA officials.

Conference Registration:

$399 until September 1st; $449 after Sept. 1st


Cancellations with refunds accepted until August 1st, less processing fee. Sorry, no refunds after August 1st. Substitutions always accepted.


With thousands of contacts across the state of Florida, FLAGGL has an extensive reach.  Our conference email blasts will reach professionals in the small business industry every 2-4 weeks, leading up to the start of the conference.  All conference sponsors will have prominent placement on these email  blasts and on our website, based on level of commitment.

The exhibitor hall will be placed directly within the first portion of the ballroom, so that attendees must enter through the exhibit hall to attend all general sessions and meals.  Throughout the conference, we ensure that there is a significant amount of time between sessions for networking and exhibitor visits.  In addition, all food and beverage is placed directly in the exhibitor hall.  We are ALMOST SOLD OUT of EXHIBIT BOOTHS – only 10 remain, so be sure to register soon.

SponsorPkg“No Suitcasing” Policy
Only conference exhibitors are permitted to promote their products, services or company during the FLAGGL Conference. Corporate product or services marketing must occur within the contracted exhibit booth space. Any individual found roaming the exhibit hall handing out flyers, ‘poaching’ prospects, placing/distributing product information in public spaces anywhere within the convention venue will be asked to cease and may be asked to leave the FLAGGL event.

Hotel Reservations:

HotelRmA group rate of $179 is available over the dates of the meeting until August 14th or until we sell out.  The hotel is completely booked for Monday and Tuesday nights, 9/11 and 12.  We have some rooms at an alternate hotel for that evening (email us for details).

Please note that FLAGGL does not endorse nor have a relationship with any outside booking agency – a company called “Exhibitor Housing Services” has contacted our sponsors in the past, stating that rooms are almost sold out and encouraging them to provide credit card information.  If  someone contacts you to book your hotel room or indicates the rooms are almost sold out, it is advised that you do not provide them with your credit card and contact the hotel or FLAGGL immediately at or call 844-887-6477.
