Visit our Brothers in the Dining Room for various snacks and drinks between each presentation!  The Snack Bar is run by our own Paul Revere Chapter of DeMolay - thank you for your help Brothers!  

For this event, food and drinks may be brought upstairs, but PLEASE - no food or drink in our Lodge Room (except water).


This year we added the option of having lunch included with your ticket to ease the process.  That order will be ready for our lunch break.  Those who purchased tickets without lunch will need to bring their lunch or visit local restaurants.  Nearby options exist in the downtown area, but the closest are The Attic next door and Yeoman's Cask & Lion two blocks south on Morgan St.  Other options will be mostly across downtown towards the river.  


Join us for some fellowship after the event at Four Green Fields in Channelside! No ticket required.  Food and drink can be purchased individually at the location.  Four Green Fields is located on the north end of the Channelside District at 802 North 12th Street Tampa, FL 33602.  Please be sure not to confuse it with their other locations.


Your credential (name badge) includes a large letter.  Look for the letter C if you need help!


C = Event Committee Member (all access)

S = Speaker (all access)

G = General Admission to Symposium (symposium access)

V = Vendor Only (vendor and downstairs areas only)
