AOA 2016 Conference in Daytona a Success

AOA Conference Hits the Mark with Attendees

The AOA conference, which wrapped up last week in Daytona Beach exceeded expectations for attendees. One first time attendee described the conference this way: "I am just about to fly out, back to Africa after a couple days visiting the Florida Keys. I just wanted to say thank you so much for an incredible event. The conferencing subjects were great and comprehensive and exceptionally relevant. It pretty much met and exceeded my expectations. As discussed I will return home and find out how much rafting revenue we turn over. We would like to become members of your organization."  Sean Edington, Safari-Par-Excellence

Despite a scare from Hurricane Matthew, attendance at the 2016 event was about 5% higher than the 2014 event in Daytona Beach. 

We are just now unpacking but you can expect more news about the outcome of the event soon. We are very grateful to our exhibitors, attendees and speakers for their valuable feedback regarding the conference.
