The BP Summit didn’t happen last year due to the pandemic. For this year’s conference, they are gathering in person, but with strict COVID safety protocols.
“To attend ... be able to bring a vaccination card or show a negative test result; we really want to make sure that everyone is safe, masks are optional,” Paul said.
Over 20 people are scheduled to speak this weekend. Included in the lineup are Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava and Hard Rock International Chairman Jim Allen.
The conference kicks off Friday night with a mixer and then continues until Sunday.
