PPSMIA Event Recap - 28th Annual Spring Pricing Workshops & Conference

We had an incredible time during the 28th Annual Pricing Workshops and Conference event in Miami, FL - below is our #PPSMIA Event Recap! Workshop attendees soaked up intensive pricing knowledge throughout Tuesday and Wednesday. We held a Latin American Summit, the first of it's kind, featuring pricing experts speaking to LATAM industry-specific subjects led by Susana Lopez, Fabio Freitas, Guillermo Leal, and Manuel Osario. To celebrate the close of the Workshops and start of Conference, attendees were invited aboard the Venetian Lady for a fabulous yacht cruise! If you weren't on the Yacht Cruise... you missed out.

World-Class Airport Miami International Airport (MIA) has more than 100 airlines and offers 150 inbound direct flights daily, along with onsite car rental and rail connection to Downtown Miami. MIA has more flights to Latin America and the Caribbean than any other U.S. airport — and it’s just 20 minutes away from the Miami Beach Convention Center and most hotels. 8.
