2022 ABMA Convention Schedule

After diverting to a virtual convention for 2021 due to the pandemic, the ABMA is excited to return in 2022 as a live and in-person event for the 105th Edition of the Annual Convention. The destination is Bonita Springs, Fla., and the event runs March 2-5 at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa. The event will follow the traditional format with committee meetings on Wednesday morning and the annual meeting and educational session in the afternoon. Three welcome receptions are on the agenda for the first evening — Emerging Leaders, New Members/First-Time Attendees and the Paul Miller Welcome Reception for all attendees.
Thursday morning features the traditional keynote with motivational speaker Paul J. Long and is followed by an afternoon golf scramble at Raptor Bay Golf Club.

The event wraps up for attendees on Friday, with the Face 2 Face meeting format in the morning where suppliers and industry manufacturers will hold pre-scheduled in-person meetings. The event will conclude with a Friday night closing Suppliers’ Reception that features a disco theme.
