The hotel is right on the water, just minutes away from the airport and world-renowned beaches, dining, shopping and nightlife in Miami Beach and South Beach.

Hotel Package

We have also arranged a hotel package that includes a lower room rate of just $159 per night. You can make a room reservation now through this dedicated link.

Golf Outing

Golf pricing is $55 (includes breakfast and lunch plus drink tickets). Club rental is an additional $45. We will be having the usual scramble style competition along with other challenges (closest to the pin, longest drive, putting contest, etc etc).

The golf event will be on 4/27/16 at the Miami Shores Country Club.

Fishing Tour

If golf is not your bag, we are offering an alternative adventure to the ABPA Golf Outing – a day of fishing off the Miami coast.

Miami is a world-class destination for sailfish, swordfish, tuna, mahi-mahi, wahoo, snapper, and  grouper. The size of the boat and costs will depend on the number of intrepid fishermen and women who sign up. So don’t wait to “cast” your name onto the list for this terrific high seas adventure!

Please contact Dave Gneiser at dgneiser@aktion.com to let him know that you are interested. We will close reservations by April 1, 2016 so that we can be sure to secure the appropriately sized charter vessel.

Ahoy there! The always fun gala dinner at this year’s ABPA Annual Meeting & Convention will take to the water aboard the luxury yacht Biscayne Lady. We’ll board the boat right from the dock at the Miami Hyatt Hotel, and enjoy a three-hour cruise around the bay, with a sumptuous meal and open bar, returning to the dock right back at the hotel. This entire evening is included in the price of your registration package!

If you are purchasing multiple Gold or Silver packages, only one full price package is required. Additional packages can be purchased at a discount. Note: Gold Package includes all days and sessions (except golf); Silver Package includes Wednesday through Friday events (except golf).
