Frequently Asked Questions - Attendees

Where will the FCRA 2021 Annual Convention be held?

This year's convention will be held at the Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa located in Clearwater, Florida. Please click here for location.

How will we socially distance?

Registration is limited to allow for up to three attendees at each table and extra space between exhibit tables. Be sure to register early to reserve your spot.

Will there be a virtual attendance option?

After much consideration, with the safety protocols in place from the hotel and by limiting the number of registrants, exhibitors, and guests, we decided to proceed with the in-person event and restrict the number of attendees. Our program will require that attendees socially distance and wear masks.

Unfortunately, through our exploration, we confirmed that it is cost prohibitive for FCRA to record and/or stream the live content for a virtual audience to participate at the same event.
