Partnering for future opportunity

The 2018 Summit of the Americas will take place March 18-21 at the Orlando World Center Marriott in Orlando, Florida. IAADFS and ASUTIL will partner to bring together the best of their respective events for the 2018 Summit of the Americas.

While the organization and advocacy efforts of the individual groups will remain the same, collaborating on a single event offers greater efficiency in one event that better represents the overall region. It also allows for participating suppliers and buyers to reduce travel costs. Both ASUTIL and IAADFS are currently surveying their membership bases to ensure that changes to the new, combined event benefit all members of each organization.

“We are looking forward to collaborating with our ASUTIL partners for the newly formatted Summit of the Americas in 2018. Combining the best of our two organizations’ annual events into a single Summit for the Americas will be a more efficient way to provide excellent educational sessions on topics of interest to the attendees, along with a vibrant exhibit hall and social and networking events,” said Michael Payne, IAADFS President and CEO.
