Port Canaveral Welcomes You!

For the first time in Port Canaveral’s 60-year history, the Canaveral Port Authority is excited and honored to host our industry’s premier event. It is our sincere pleasure to have you join us for the annual convention of the American Association of Port Authorities at the exceptional JW Marriott Grande Lakes in Orlando, Florida.

This year’s convention promises to deliver an informative business agenda and enjoyable social programs to combine for an outstanding adventure during your time in central Florida. We know that you will leave our vibrant homeport region enriched with knowledge to bolster your professional endeavors and to help move our industry forward.

You also will have the opportunity to reconnect with colleagues and friends from throughout the United States, Latin America, Canada, and the Caribbean during the networking events and social activities planned for your enjoyment.


As you make your plans to register for the convention, we invite you to explore the many diverse opportunities for pre- and post-convention adventures. From a beach adventure to eco-tours to Kennedy Space Center and Orlando-area attractions, we offer more to do in our homeport region than anywhere else on the planet.

See you in October for Adventure at the Edge of Imagination!

Meet your Hosts
