Welcome to the 2018 Face Awards & Face Diversity Summit

Gulfshore Business and D’Latinos Magazines are pleased to introduce the inaugural Face Diversity Summit to be held on Thursday, April 5, at the Hyatt Coconut Point Resort & Spa in Bonita Springs, Florida. The daylong conference will be dedicated to the belief that diversity is good for business.


The event, which will include multiple seminars on a variety of topics, is an outgrowth of the Face Awards, which our publications co-founded in 2011 to honor businesses and outstanding individuals who reflect and celebrate positive values and the ethnic and racial diversity within Southwest Florida. Summit attendees can choose from different educational tracts, such as leadership, marketing, sales, recruiting and much more.

Seminars and panel discussions will be led by local and national experts, and guests can partake in an expo and networking opportunities.

The 2018 Face Awards, now in its eighth year honoring business and individuals who represent diversity in Southwest Florida, will be presented during a luncheon ceremony between the morning and afternoon sessions.
