One memorable evening

Conference 2019Enjoy a moment in a tropical environment while you reconnect with colleagues at the 2019 EMBAC Conference special event.

On Tuesday evening, take the journey to Margaritaville Orlando, part of Universal Citywalk™, where you will be transported to an exotic destination. The simulated boat-filled marina includes suspended airplanes, tiki bars, outdoor decks, and a volcano flowing with, of course, margaritas.

The evening will feature a menu of diverse appetizers, prepared by the restaurant’s culinary team. While you're there, take a peek at the Lone Palm Airport across the sidewalk from the venue, another Margaritaville attraction with musician Jimmy Buffett's own seaplane, the Hemisphere Dancer.

Make the most of your visit to Orlando by taking part in the EMBAC special event: Your conference registration form includes a section where you can register for this exciting evening.
