Greater Fort Lauderdale / Broward County is emerging as the most diverse area in the country, and it’s the gathering place of choice for large professional organizations, including the country’s most influential African-American groups.
The Urban League, the Newspaper Publishers Association, and 100 Black Men of America have all made return visits to plan their national social justice agendas. Members of Delta Sigma Theta and Omega Psi Phi made history leading the famed Seminole Hard Rock Winterfest Boat Parade, and the Alpha Kappa Alphas convened here. Visit Lauderdale hosted the 2nd Annual Cultural and Heritage Tourism Summit in 2019 bringing together small businesses, local artists and cultural groups with industry power players from around the U.S. for economic empowerment.
