2012 Business Facilities LiveXchange

Why is Business Facilities LiveXchange held at a relatively remote location?

Staying at a relatively remote location takes delegate away from the hectic world of the office and allows everyone to think strategically and conduct meetings in a focused, business-like environment. There are no exhibition stands or product demonstrations in the meeting areas, no interruptions and, of course, no long-distance traveling between appointments.

What are the accommodations like?

All participants are allocated sole occupancy hotel rooms with en-suite facilities.

Are spouses/partners invited?

Business Facilities LiveXchange has been designed to maximize your time in a professional environment throughout the day. Each element of the event, including one-to-one meetings, golf tournaments, sessions, receptions and meals, are pre-set appointments open only to corporate delegates and sponsors. Spouses are strongly discouraged from attending as they will be unable to participate in any of the scheduled events.

If your spouse does decide to come, any hotel surcharges which may apply will be your responsibility. The Hyatt Regency Coconut Point offers a number of restaurants and activities which your spouse may visit during the event. Spouses will need to make their own arrangements at their own expense.

How much does it cost?

Attendance to delegates is by INVITATION-ONLY. If you register and qualify for an invitation by September 2, 2012, your confirmed registration includes (at no cost you): deluxe accommodations and meals at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point, airfare, and ground transportation in Bonita Springs. At the event, you will receive up to $350 toward your airfare and transfers to/from the airport. (To get the best airfare rates, we suggest you make your flight arrangements through the Business Facilities LiveXchange travel planner.) The only cost will be any personal purchases at the location such as: phone calls made from your hotel room, drinks purchased outside of meal-times, and items from the shop.

Can I highlight the sponsor companies I do not wish to meet?

Yes, there is a facility to bar any meetings you feel are inappropriate – we call this negative preferencing.

What happens if a delegate cancels?

If a corporate delegate cancels on or after September 2, 2012 there is a cancellation fee of $1,000. This is structured to ensure that corporate delegates are committed to the selection process and to ensure that they are not holding a place open that they do not intend to take. We anticipate the demand for places to be greater than we can accommodate, and any cancellations will deprive another corporate executive of the potential opportunity to attend. Secondly, once the appointment system goes live your cancellation affects others at the event and we need to limit this disruption.

How do I register my interest in attending?

Is there a dress code?

The event is business casual during the day and evening.
