2023 Summer Educational Conference

Join us on June 25 – 28, 2023 at Hotel Effie in beautiful Sandestin, FL. The vibrant community of Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort and its 2,400 acres of lush landscape and coastal beauty is the perfect backdrop for the southern luxury of Hotel Effie. With more than 45 years of tradition, the deeply rooted community has so much to offer as the picture-perfect vacation destination. Hotel Effie is a new and exciting part of it all. And so are you.

People have been called to Northwest Florida’s Emerald Coast for decades. A coastline of pristine white sand beaches carved from quartz carried from the Appalachian mountains 20,000 years ago, the Emerald coast is a forest by the sea, flanked by towering oaks and pines.

Hotel Effie itself is found on the banks of the Choctawhatchee Bay, nestled inside the gates of the world-famous Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort and adjacent to the bustling Village at Baytowne Wharf. The area is serviced by the Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS), Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP), and Pensacola International Airport (PNS).

If you encounter an issue when attempting to book a hotel room, or if it appears that no rooms are currently available, please reach out directly to for assistance.
