Hyatt Regency Orlando.

The World Forum on Early Care and Education is unlike any other gathering.  The program is crafted to build relationships, expand perspectives, and provoke new thinking.  Public status or recognition are not required to take on any role at World Forum, nor are any presenters paid for speaking. Instead, we rely on individuals to step forward and share their experiences and insights.  All delegates, in-person or attending virtually, on stage and in the audience, share an equal voice.  Everyone has something to learn and something to share.
