ABOUT THE FLORIDA ASSOCIATION OF PRIVATE INVESTIGATORS
“Florida’s Oldest Private Investigative Association – Since 1963”
The Florida Association of Private Investigators, Inc. is a professional organization created to provide
a voice for licensed private investigators and related professionals within the State of Florida and throughout the United States. The Association offers its members extensive networking opportunities with other experienced investigators nationwide, and a place to share referrals, questions, sources of information and more in a friendly, non competitive, yet professional atmosphere through our members’ only discussion group.


CONFERENCE & LOCATION INFORMATION
The conference program features a pre-conference event and two days devoted to educating private investigators, law enforcement, attorneys, paralegals, investigative reporters, and those wishing to learn more about investigations. The conference will feature a collection of talented local and national speakers. We traditionally anticipate between 100 and 150 attendees for this event. Each participant is a professional who devotes a major portion of his or her practice and business to investigative matters.

The conference will be held at the Hilton Orlando/Altamonte Springs 350 Northlake Blvd, Altamonte Springs, Florida, 32701-5297.
The Hilton Orlando/Altamonte Springs hotel is one of Orlando, Florida’s leading business and leisure hotels. While Orlando may be famous for theme parks and attractions, there is a world of business to be conducted each day. Of Altamonte Springs hotels, our North Orlando hotel offers the amenities and meeting space for business and provides an excellent central location for everything else.

This Orlando/Altamonte Springs, FL hotel is easily accessible from Interstate 4 and conveniently located halfway between Walt Disney World® and Daytona. Complimentary transportation is available within a three-mile radius of Hilton Orlando/Altamonte Springs, which encompasses shopping, dining, movie theaters and Cranes Roost Park and Amphitheater.

Relax in a FAPI negotiated reduced price guest room, bathed in natural light through large windows. At our North Orlando business hotel, stay connected with wireless internet access and the fully equipped business center – offering express mail, fax and photo copying services to help you meet deadlines. Plunge into the pool and work out at the fully equipped fitness center. Dine in the vibrant ‘U’ Restaurant, serving up a blend of American fusion cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Rent a car from the Hertz Car Rental Desk and ask reception for recommendations on the local area.

Whatever you need, the multilingual team is dedicated to assisting you. The hotel also offers complimentary self-parking.

        VENDOR AND SPONSOR OPPORTUNITIES ARE AVAILABLE!!
        If you are interested in becoming a vendor or a sponsor for our upcoming 2016 Annual Investigation & Litigation Conference. Should you have any additional questions please contact our Ari Morse at ari@probate.com

        The conference committee has made an adjustment for students in our industry wishing to attend the conference. The adjustments are as follows:

         

        1) A reduced rate of $199.00, from the $229.00 rate, for attendance to the conference. (They must have their Student ID to get this rate, since the banquet cost is included and we are trying to help a group that is in school and not actively operating yet.)

        2) With their registration and attendance, FAPI will also give them a year membership to FAPI as a Student member.  If they can register pretty quickly, they will get their ID card and membership certificate at the conference.

        3) This membership duration will count toward their requirements to eventually attain their Board Accredited Investigator (BAI) rating, if they elect to achieve this peer review rating.

         

         I would encourage all of you to reach out to the local colleges/technical schools in your area that may sponsor such programs and lets see if we can get others involved.  This may be a great way to get lumps of attendees and new members for FAPI.
