About the event

We are so thrilled to welcome you to MIAMI, America's fast-growing metropolis on the tropical frontier. Home to millions who escaped communist oppression in Latin America or socialist decay in California and New York, today MIAMI is the home of a hemispheric anti-woke and anti-communist movement.

Get ready for a behind the scenes look at MIAMI, hobnob with VIP speakers, and learn insider insights, all while conducting important FFYR business set amid the towering skyscrapers and swaying palms of MIAMI's Brickell neighborhood. We will be joined by emerging Republican leaders, elected officials, political staffers, activists, and young professionals from across Florida for an itinerary of meetings, receptions, panel discussions, speakers, workshops, and a gala dinner.

Sponsored by the Republican Party of Florida and Turning Point Action, the 2022 Florida Young Republicans Annual Conference will set the tone for this election cycle in Miami and beyond. Bringing some of the brightest minds in the conservative movement, attendees will have a one of a kind opportunity to be equipped and empowered to win races in communities across the state.
