Experience, as the Italians say, “Il Perfetto Equilibrio” the perfect balance of work and play, when you come to NYSADA’s 91ST Annual Convention and Business Meeting.

The Loews Portofi no Bay Hotel, Universal Orlando Resort, will be our venue for this year’s 91ST Annual Convention and Business Meeting from Wednesday, November 19TH through Sunday, November 23RD. This luxurious hotel is modeled after its namesake the beautiful Mediterranean seaside resort village in Italy. We invite you to take a stroll down the authentic cobblestone streets and visit the outdoor cafes. The resort is home to eight restaurants including the internationally-renowned Bice Ristorante and Mama Della’s Ristorante, where you can indulge in authentic Italian gourmet cuisine.

The resort offers a variety of activities for you and your family to enjoy: a full menu of services at the Mandara Spa, splash and swim in one of the three themed pools, reserve a character dining experience, children can enjoy a variety of programs at the Kids Camp or shop in the resort’s upscale boutiques and art gallery. You may even bring Fido – Loews is committed to our furry friends and has a selection of pet friendly rooms (please book early because the number of these rooms are limited).

After you have spent time enjoying the Italian Riviera, jump on a water taxi and enter a world of excitement and entertainment. In an instant you’re in an entire universe of action, fun, and amusement that takes you to where you never thought you’d go – Universal Orlando® Resort. You’ll discover two spectacular theme parks, non-stop nightlife and more, all in one convenient location. You’ll experience the pulse-pounding thrills of Universal’s Islands of Adventure®. Here you’ll take an unforgettable journey through remarkable islands where all your treasured myths, legends, comic books, cartoons and children’s stories come to life on cutting-edge rides and attractions that challenge all the senses. Right next door you can go beyond the screen, behind the scenes and jump into the action of your favorite films at Universal Studios Florida®. At the world’s premier movie and TV based theme park, you’ll find an amazing array of rides, shows, movie sets and attractions that make YOU the star. Plus, you can enjoy the best in restaurants, nightclubs, shopping, movies and more at Universal CityWalk®, The Entertainment Capital of Orlando. Spend your free time at the one place where heroes rise, inhibitions fall, movies come to life, and the laws of physics are tossed out the window.

When T. S. Eliot wrote, “April is the cruelest month,” he had never been in New York during November. Wouldn’t you prefer to be in sunny Florida for five days of learning, networking and fun at one the most exceptional properties in the world? You can expect to be entertained and educated by the business session speakers, reconnect with old friends and make new ones during banquets, breakfasts and social activities. Please take a moment to review the enclosed registration form.

The Loews Portofino Bay Hotel offers the perfect balance for work and play, “Il Perfetto Equilibrio.” We are looking forward to another successful convention with all our dealer friends and sincerely hope you will be able to join us.
