Executive Summit

Executive Summit

Thank you for attending The Vision Council's 2015 Executive Summit held Jan. 21-23 at the PGA National Resort in Florida. The Summit enjoyed another record breaking attendance of over 340 industry leaders.

This year's program featured opportunities for executive-level networking, leadership development, economic trend updates, industry panels and business thinking and strategy. The addition of seven limited seating workshops gave attendees intimate access to global thought leaders and were filled to capacity.

This powerful resource is designed to keep you aware of the industry landscape as you chart a course for the future.

Save the Date: The 2016 Executive Summit will be held on January 27-29 at the Waldorf Astoria, Orlando.
