Over 60 particpants representing 30 difference countries from as far away as Russia, France, Germany, Turkey, and Denmark – to name a few – met for 2 days and developed strategy on international marketing, technology and the sharing of business opportunities. Furthermore, the group was treated to a special private tour of the Clearwater Aquarium and dinner at the Island Way Grille. Pinellas County, Clearwater and the area beaches are the main benefactors of this meeting as the attendees were extremely impressed with the area which opens up the door for future business opportunities.
