What to Expect at Our First-Ever Vision Summit in Miami

Get ready, 305! We are so excited to get the Miami party started at 1111 Lincoln Road for our first-ever Create & Cultivate Vision Summit! There are so many amazing things coming your way, but before we get any closer to the big day, we wanted to give you a sneak peek of what to expect. Besides the jam-packed speaker lineup, keynote conversation with legend Venus Williams, and beautiful open space for networking, the day is full of Instagrammable moments, shopping, food and drink. Plus, TONS of inspiration from our bold lineup. From launching a blog or a business, developing content strategies or taking your existing plans to the next level, you will be networking with like-minded creatives while hearing advice from the best in the industry.

Checking In

The check-in process begins sharply at 9:30AM. Head up to the 7th floor where we’ll be ready to check you in at the registration area. To get to the 7th floor, you can take the elevators or stairs of your choice. At registration, you’ll need to present a government-issued form of ID to receive your badge for the summit (no badges will be mailed in advance).
