IDFB Plenary Meeting 2024, Miami/FL, USA

Only six days to go until the 70th IDFB Plenary Meeting in Miami!

Time to think about your packing list! Be aware that even though the weather forecast does not look too good for the meeting days, the climate in Miami is still hot and humid. So, pack light! We adjusted the dress code to business/resort casual for the meetings and sport jacket only, no tie, for the cocktail party and gala dinner.

Partner Program

Everyone not attending the meetings can taste ones way through Miami South Beach, from local favorite holes-in-the-wall to the trendiest haute cuisine. Dive into its rich history and iconic Art Deco architecture, and see the side of Miami made famous in the movies.

Our tour guide will meet all tour participants on Tuesday, June 18, at 10:30am at the lobby of the Ritz Carlton South Beach for a 2.5 hours walking tour to the most famous Art Deco spots of the city.

Enjoy historic Art Deco architecture and Miami’s best local cuisine! 
The tasting menu serves a full meal, so come hungry! Between food tastings, the tour makes several stops to learn the history of the Art Deco period on South Beach with visits to famous movie locations! Does this sound like the perfect add-on for the IDFB Plenary Meeting in Miami?

The pricing is € 67 per person. To secure your place, a deposit of 100% is requested by the tour operator. Please make your payment via below link latest by tomorrow June 11, 2024, 2 pm CET.

Please note that we can only hold your seat if we receive the payment in time!
