“Networking with FFEA members and hearing from speakers gives me a fresh look on my events and how I can change them up from year to year so they don’t stay dormant.”
Danielle Beardsley, Special Events Coordinator, City of Delray Beach Parks & Recreation
"FFEA offers a chance to meet and get to know other industry professionals in our areas.We can share stories and insights about each other’s events.We all go through similar challenges and successes so it is nice to get to meet and get familiar with some many others in the industry."
Kris Koch, Recreation Supervisor, City of Clearwater
“FFEA speakers were amazing! The conference is like getting an instant boost of creativity and views of your peers. As you plan events there are many hurdles that you have to go over and through and it is nice to bounce off ideas from different people and feel the safety net that they have done it before. The networking has opened the door for conversations regarding talent & suppliers.”
Jana Werksman, Event Coordinator, City of Coral Springs
“Professionally, I’ve gained a great deal of knowledge about keeping costs down and maximizing profit at events, fostering a better volunteering program and how to better develop and utilize resources and partners that we already have to be more cost effective and produce a better event. What I really liked about the FFEA Conference is that I didn’t realize how much I learned because I was having so much fun the whole time! I look most forward to meeting new people every year and learning new and innovative ideas to implement, as the event world is ever-changing!
Kristin Bean, Special Events & Recreation Specialist, City of Cape Coral
“FFEA helps you get to know colleagues in your area by giving you contacts, point of references and helping to create professional relationships. You have the opportunity to learning something new and meet new people.What you might not necessarily learn in the some of the sessions, you might learn in a conversation with someone you just met.”
Angela Poco, Event Coordinator, City of West Palm Beach
