Want to bring the Float Conference to your city?
Although the Float Conference has a staff and a Board of Directors, the Conference is by and large organized by - and for - the float industry. In order to offer the best possible Float Conference, we need eyes and ears on the ground in each new city we visit. We call this position the Local Liaison.
Submitting your city to be in the running for the next Float Conference also means submitting yourself to be the next Local Liaison.
Each year, we invite members of the float industry to let us know why their city would be a great fit for the Float Conference and why their center should be our home base for a year. Our Board will choose the city and liaison that best fits the Float Conference’s needs that year. Let's look at what all this means...
What does it mean to be a Float Conference Local Liaison?
A Local Liaison….
shares insight on the city, for example, offering potential venues for the events and parties.
may be our feet on the ground throughout the year, doing odd jobs like measuring things or taking pictures of certain venues.
allows us to give out some free floats from your center to your local partnering organizations. (This really helps us get in good favor with these various organizations, and it helps spread floating in your city!) We typically give out about 50 floats over the course of the year.
helps us design and implement the stage, hopefully working with local artists to create a unique look for the year’s conference presentations.
allows us to rely on using some of your connections and staff to help us run the actual event (things like working registration, helping us setup and clean up, etc).
What's in it for You?
We can’t thank our Local Liaisons enough for all of the hard work and support they provide to help put on the Float Conference, but we can provide you and your staff with free tickets to the event, and list you on our website as the local liaison.
