Designed by world-renowned architect Robert Trent Jones Sr. in 1970, Port Royal has recently undergone a $14.5 million renovation, a complete makeover spearheaded by original design team member Roger Rulewich in preparation for the 2009/2010 PGA Grand Slam of Golf. With the support of the Bermuda Government, Port Royal is now one of the world’s premier public golf courses boasting TifEagle greens, a state-of-the art irrigation system and sweeping ocean views from nearly every hole. Add to that its’ 300-yard oceanfront driving range and the course’s luxurious clubhouse and your Port Royal experience is sure to be unforgettable.

Business Sessions & Tech Fair

Presentations

Attendees are offered carefully selected business and technical presentations for the purpose of acquiring essential information that can help them grow and improve their businesses. Presenters cover a range of subjects that can assist with both operational and financial elements of a company, from the implementation of structured programs and practices to how to address specific challenges on the jobsite.

Roundtables

Roundtables allow all participants the opportunity to express their thoughts and opinions in a structured, yet informal manner. This format is designed to encourage a free-flowing exchange of information and everyone present is sure to leave with at least one new idea to help their company.

Panel Discussions

Participate in an interactive discussion with a panel consisting of contractors and manufacturer representatives who will share their knowledge and experience on a given subject. Panel discussions have been a popular addition to the convention program in recent years as the format is designed to encourage open dialogue between panelists and participants.

Tech Fair

Now a mainstay at the Annual Convention, the tabletop Tech Fair continues to provide attendees with an opportunity to learn about the latest innovations and newest products in the industry. Manufacturer and affiliate representatives will be on hand to converse one-on-one with contractors about the tools, equipment and services they offer in an intimate setting that is unattainable at large trade shows. A deli-style lunch will be served with an option to purchase drinks.
