Postponement Details

We are reaching out to let you know that we have made the tough call to postpone the Gulf Power Economic Symposium and all related events.

As you likely know, the most recent weather forecast shows Hurricane Michael making landfall somewhere along the Northwest Florida coast on Wednesday, Oct. 10. This is a major safety concern for our attendees since many of you would be traveling to the event during this time. We also know that you all are likely in the midst of preparing for this storm.

We will be in touch in the near future regarding your conference registration. For those who have made Sandestin hotel reservations within the Symposium group block, your reservation will be automatically cancelled, and your deposit will be refunded. Please allow 5 – 7 business days for the refund to be processed.

For those who booked directly with Sandestin outside of the Symposium group block, please call 1-800-320-8115 to cancel your reservation directly – these reservations will NOT be automatically cancelled. Additional questions about hotel reservations can be directed to this same number.

Although we are disappointed to have to postpone this much-anticipated event, your safety is our top priority. If you have any further questions, please email us.


Wishing all of you a safe week. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
