WICT Florida: FITCon

November 15 @ 7:00 am - 10:00 am EST

Florida Internet & Television is pleased to announce details for the second-annual 2018 Florida Internet & Television Conference, known as “FITConFL!

What was formerly known as FCTA’s Annual Meeting has been reimagined and redesigned to facilitate leading policy and industry discussions for the evolving internet and television industries.

On the heels of Florida’s historic 2018 statewide election, FITCon Florida will give you the opportunity to join Florida’s top industry leaders to receive updates on recent state and federal legislative & regulatory policy developments impacting our industry; learn the state of telemedicine and multi-platform content; hear from experts on meeting workforce challenges; explore what’s next for connected cities; and much more!

In addition to thought-provoking panels on these topics, the conference will feature keynote speaker Phil McKinney, CEO of CableLabs, plus more speakers to be announced!

After receiving the latest updates on the internet and television industry, don’t forget to make time to visit Orlando’s world-class attractions. Hilton Bonnet Creek is a premium resort located minutes from its world-famous theme parks, hotels, dining and shopping options ideal for guests and family members of all ages.
