We will see you in West Palm Beach!

Dear RAA Community Member,
 
We are pleased to confirm that RAA’s 42nd annual convention and trade show is ON for Palm Beach, Florida on September 24-27.
 
In addition to being ready for business, the Convention and Visitors Bureau in Palm Beach has assured us that our convention will not divert critical resources needed for recovery in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. This was important to RAA; we wanted reassurance that our convention would not displace the needs of the state of Florida or its residents during recovery. Happily, Palm Beach has assured us they have sufficient capacity to accommodate both RAA’s convention-goers as well as first responders and other professionals who are helping with recovery. With that assurance, I am pleased to announce that RAA’s annual convention and trade show will take place as planned.
 
Many thanks to you for your patience while we awaited the official “go” from Palm Beach. We have a great lineup of content for discussion this year, fantastic events planned, and most importantly, a wonderful community that we are honored to bring together.
 
We will see you in Palm Beach.

Below is the letter from the Palm Beach County CVB
 
Dear Regional Airline Association team,
We are excited to be hosting the Regional Airline Association's 42nd annual conference here in the Palm Beaches from September 24th to the 27th.  The regional airline industry has been one of the many key players for the individuals and communities affected by Hurricane Irma.  We are honored to be hosting the conference that provides education to this industry on matters related to safe, reliable and robust service.
 
 Discover The Palm Beaches and Palm Beach County fared well with minimal damage and all sectors of the community is currently in cleanup mode following Hurricane Irma. Many of our businesses are scheduled to re-open this week and are very close to business as usual. With over 17,000 hotel rooms in Palm Beach, we are fortunate our hotels are able to support the recovery efforts along with the overall needs of RAA's annual conference.  
 
We appreciate your continued support in the Palm Beaches community, and I look forward to meeting you in person very soon. In the meantime, I am confident our group sales and services team will continue to ensure a successful and memorable event.
Sincerely,
 
 
Jorge Pesquera
President & CEO
