There were some logistical problems with our friends at the Hyatt that have led to us having to move the event at the last minute. These issues just came to light yesterday and we’ve spent the last 24 hours finding a new home for the show. The good news is that we have one!
Our new friends at the Westin on Fort Lauderdale Beach have just opened their new convention center this week…and has welcomed us and our Twilight fans with open arms.
To get to the Westin just follow 17th street causeway straight to the beach as it turns into A1A
Follow A1A north for about 2 1/2 miles. The Westin is on the west side of the street (across from the beach!)
The show is in the convention center part of the hotel which is across the street (on the south side) from the hotel itself. Valet parking with the Westin for this event is just $5 per day.
We apologize for the inconvenience, but it’s only a few minutes away and it’ll be the same show with the same guests that you were expecting!
Any problems, you can call Sandy at 321-276-4752
We’re excited to see you at the show!
