Our Host Resort: Ocean Reef Club, Key Largo, Florida

Offering 1,700 waterfront estates, private homes, condominiums and boat slips, Ocean Reef Club also features an oceanfront Inn, full-service spa and salon, and an array of dining and shopping options. Located within an hour from Miami International Airport and 1.5 hours from Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport, Ocean Reef Club is also serviced by its own 4,456-foot lighted runway.
The Format Works
“HOTEC provides an outstanding means for vendors, purchasing agents and designers to connect in a casual, low pressure way. Unlike many similar events, HOTEC is extremely low key, low pressure and casual. The event fosters camaraderie and helps to build business friendship and networks in a most pleasant way.” David Benz, Vaughan Benz
“The entire event far exceeded my expectations. I was able to meet with several new suppliers that I plan to contact in the future for business. Everything was perfect from the travel arrangements, to the accommodations, to the meetings & activities. For being such an intense few days of meetings and activities, the atmosphere was comfortable, easy, and relaxed. I truly hope that I can attend again next year.” Kim Bello, The Venetian
