See who’s attending Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce Conference

14 min read

A who’s who of the public, private and nonprofit sectors convene this weekend for the Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce annual conference following last year’s cancellation prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The conference takes place at the Ritz-Carlton golf course resort in Amelia Island.

As of July 26, the conference had 532 registered attendees — the largest number in Chamber’s history. The previous record of 525 registered attendees happened in 2015.

But, still under the cloak of the pandemic and now with a vicious surge tied to the Delta variant, there have been dozens of cancellations leading up to the much anticipated event. 

By Aug. 10, just days before the conference kick-off, the number dropped to 475 attendees. Chamber officials told the Democrat they are offering refunds to members who are backing out due to COVID concerns.
