Conference Status:

We know many of you are concerned about the effect that Hurricane Irma could have on the BCTM 2017 conference. Our thoughts are with all of the people who were affected by the storms this past month.

We have learned that damages from Hurricane Irma were not as great as the pre-landfall predictions. The good news is that the Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay hotel will be fully prepared for our conference.

We hope you can join us. Please register for the conference & book your hotel room.
