This March, WISPA and FISPA will be partnering once again for an annual conference in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. This year’s event is scheduled from March 26th to March 30th at the Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort at Walt Disney World®.

Last year we held the FISPA/WISPA Service Provider Summit in Orlando which received excellent reviews. In October 2011, WISPAPALOOZA and FISPAlive were held in Las Vegas at the Flamingo Hotel, again with exceptional reviews. These two events were attended by a total of 800 unique attendees from all over the world.

We are continuing our collaborative event schedules with this new event and with a new name. This year’s event is called the ISPAmerica 2012 Symposium, powered by WISPA and FISPA.
