UPDATE: DREAM DESTINATION CONFERENCE 2023 HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL OCTOBER 22ND – 26TH, 2023.
Last year, Hurricane Ian damaged most of Florida and forced the Ritz-Carlton in Naples to undergo renovations. Unfortunately, the exotic places where we host our Dream Destination Conference can sometimes experience these types of powerful weather events. Due to recent news that the resort will not be ready by May, FFS has made the decision to postpone DDC23 until October 22nd
– 26th, 2023.
