ORLANDO - With a little more than two months until the WFX Conference & Expo returns to Orlando for a second successive year, those who are considering attending the three-day event, there is a litany of new offerings for those heading down to the Orange County Convention Center from September 17-19.
For those who will be arriving on the first day, there will be an incredible selection of Pre-Conference Intensives, with 10 in all, including “Beyond the Google Search: How to Source and Buy Solutions For Your Church.”
Aside from the initial day’s Pre-Conference Intensives, the vast networking opportunities, education, training, and special features are extensive.
Those learning opportunities will continue over the three days with a pair of keynotes, first by Renaut Van der Reit, lead pastor of Mosaic Church in Winter Garden, Florida, on the event’s first day, with media producer, consultant and author Phil Cooke to host his keynote, “How Christians Blew Our Credibility and How We Get It Back,” on Thursday.
Opportunities to learn will go beyond the areas of tech arts, construction and safety & security, as has been the case during prior WFX conferences, with a deeper look at current trends related to facility management, especially in areas such as energy efficiency, to systems maintenance and emergency management.
Upon sitting in either the keynotes or the extensive educational sessions, an expanded expo hall will provide extensive opportunities to learn about the newest solutions and products ideally suited for houses of worship. In addition, many of those products and solutions can be seen in operation with nine demo rooms to be on-site at the convention center.
As in prior years, the conference will offer an array of fellowship opportunities, along with a networking reception. And as has been the case the last two years, both the Solomon Awards and New Product Awards will have their respective winners announced at the show on Wednesday. In addition, there will be worship sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday, paired with book signings, micro-burst sessions and entertainment in The Spark during the conference.
