As some of you know I’m hosting the FinTwit Conference in Orlando, Florida from Friday, October 8th to Sunday, October 10th — this is Columbus Day weekend which means 3-day weekend for most people plus the stock/bond markets will be closed on October 11th.
Earlier this week I launched the website FinTwit2021.com
This is where you can read all the details, see the schedule, see the speakers, see the sponsors, purchase event tickets and reserve your hotel rooms.
We are hosting the event at the JW Marriott Orlando where we have 200 rooms blocked off. We also have 150 rooms blocked off at the Ritz Carlton Orlando which is right next door. These two properties are considered "sister" hotels and actually share some amenities like their pools.
We negotiated a rate of $239/night at both properties but only for the first 350 people that book their rooms -- after these rooms are gone we will try to get more rooms but we have no idea what the rate will be so please reserve your rooms ASAP to lock in this amazing price. Typically these rooms go for $400-$650 per night.
Just so everyone is aware, you may arrive as early as October 5th and stay as late as October 13th using our group rates ($239/night) -- personally I'm planning to be there for this entire time frame.
To reserve your rooms at either property, please go to: https://book.passkey.com/gt/218244069?gtid=2097abcdacd86e9613f03a9f72be2bab
To reserve your event tickets which you'll need to attend any of the social events as well as the keynote speakers, breakout sessions, expert panels and roundtable discussions: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fintwit-conference-october-8th-to-october-10th-tickets-163053863495
The event tickets also include the breakfast buffet and lunch buffet on Saturday, October 9th -- for a full list of what is covered please visit FinTwit2021.com
Just to reiterate, we only have 350 hotel rooms blocked off at the $239/night rate so once they are gone there's no guarantee we get more rooms at these prices.
All other details including speakers, sponsors, event schedule and what's included with tickets is posted at FinTwit2021.com
Please spread the word to your friends and colleagues. Everyone is welcome to attend this event, whether you've been investing for 3 months or 3 decades.
We're still looking for 2-3 more sponsors, if your company is interested please email me at email@example.com
Just so everyone knows, I will not make any profit off this event and it’s very possible I end up losing money. I felt it was important to bring together the FinTwit community after this pandemic because most of us have never met in person. The combination of great speakers and lots of social events should lead to a really wonderful weekend for everyone that attends. The cost for event tickets and sponsorships is to cover our food costs, A/V costs, room setup costs, etc.
If you have any questions about the event or have any problems with your room reservations or buying event tickets, please let me know.
