Meetings are Back! NFFS Announces 2022 Industry Executive Conference

With the ongoing vaccination of the public against COVID-19 and the high rates of effectiveness of those vaccines, many people are eagerly looking forward to resuming normal activities, including traveling, socializing with others outside their ‘bubble,’ and of course, engaging in live face-to-face professional events. Experts from the CDC have predicted that most adults in the U.S. will be vaccinated by the end of summer, clearing the way for the resumption of normal recreational and business travel.

At the Non-Ferrous Founders’ Society, we work diligently to provide meaningful opportunities for our members and our industry peers to engage with one another. With an eye on the ability to once again gather safely, NFFS has announced the dates and location of its upcoming in-person 2022 Industry Executive Conference (IEC).

The NFFS 2022 Industry Executive Conference will be held February 12–14, 2022, at the Westin Cape Coral Resort at Marina Village located in Cape Coral, Florida. The agenda once again includes two days of educational sessions from subject matter experts, a tabletop exhibition featuring innovative products and services from our industry’s leading suppliers, Board and Committee meetings, and a variety of social and networking events designed to help maximize the fun of attending a NFFS meeting! Room rates are $269/night plus a $10 resort fee and 11.5% tax per night. 

The Westin Cape Coral Resort at Marina Village is ready to welcome you next February with comfort, tranquility and a host of wellness-enhancing amenities. Located near Fort Myers and featuring impressive views of the Gulf of Mexico, the Caloosahatchee River and the Tarpon Point Marina, the hotel places you in the heart of one of southwest Florida’s most beautiful settings. Spacious, traditional hotel rooms or one-, two- and three-bedroom condo-style suites offer exceptional amenities such as a fully equipped kitchen and a private screened balcony. Ideal for couples and families alike, the AAA 4-Diamond resort boasts an on-site marina, a spa and salon, tennis courts, kayak and bicycle rentals, a nature trail, three outdoor pools, an amphitheater and shopping, along with a full schedule of hotel activities. For those wanting to enjoy the sand and surf of Florida’s famed beaches, the hotel provides a water tax to nearby Ft. Myers Beach that is ready to go. After a full day of play in Cape Coral, retreat to the comfort of your hotel room or suite and recharge for a new adventure.

Registration for the NFFS 2022 Industry Executive Conference will open in September 2022. Check the NFFS website and member newsletters for additional updates on the event as they become available.
