‘The Skunk Ape’ of Florida

Announcing the first annual Great Florida Bigfoot Conference on July 10, 2021, at the RP Funding Center in Lakeland, Florida. Featuring an all-star lineup of Bigfoot researchers, investigators, and authors ready to interact with fans and discuss their experiences and findings.
Headlining this year’s event are Loren Coleman and Cliff Barackman. Exhibitors will also be set up all day with tons of related merchandise.
Doors open at 9 am and we go until 5 pm. This event is open to the public but advance tickets are required as we cannot guarantee them at the door. Tickets are all day in and out entry but don’t miss the end segments as we bring back the full panel of speakers on stage for an interactive Q&A along with a segment of encounters from the audience.
Additional events are planned for the weekend to include a Meet & Greet Dinner on Friday, July 9, 2021, and a couple of other surprises TBA. These events will have limited availability and ticketed on a first-come basis. Email announcements will be sent to all ticket holders first so be sure to check your emails.

ABOUT THE POSTPONEMENTAfter careful consultation with our venue’s management team and our speakers regarding the health and safety of everyone involved in our event – attendees, vendors, sponsors, and long-time partners – we have made the difficult decision to postpone the inaugural Great Florida Bigfoot Conference. The event will still be held at the RP Funding Center in Lakeland Florida. The new date for the event will be July 10, 2021 with the VIP Meet & Greet Dinner being held on July 9th.Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation. We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event for all the bigfoot enthusiasts, vendors, and supporters. But we know it’s the right decision based on the information we have today.We thank everyone who shared their input on the formation of the upcoming event and the decision to move it to July. We are convinced that this move will allow us to have a larger, more engaging event, while diminishing the likelihood that we will lose speakers, vendor, and sponsors that are unwilling to travel at this time. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU?Attendees & Vendors: Your tickets and booth reservations automatically transfer to the new date. No action is required.Sponsors: Your sponsorship transfers to the new date. We will work with you to get additional exposure during the extra 5 months your sponsorship now covers.The COVID-19 Pandemic has been hard on everyone but absolutely brutal on us in the event industry. Please bear with us as we make all the changes that a rescheduled event requires. A couple of the speakers currently scheduled were already saying that they would likely not come to the January event. This new date improves our chances of keeping the lineup intact.We promise to do everything in our power to take advantage of this extra time to make sure that the event in July is the best it can possibly be.
