Event Planning

Not Your Typical Meeting or Event

We are pleased that you are considering holding your next event at the IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame & Museum, South Florida’s most unique location for meetings and events.  Enjoy a stunning visual setting and a variety of interactive experiences.  The Hall of Fame room features a sea of life-size replicas of world record catches suspended overhead, a beautiful and sophisticated backdrop for social or corporate events.  The Events Hall is a modern, A/V-equipped meeting space available for daytime or evening rental.  Smaller conference rooms are also available.  The IGFA is a registered 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization and all space rental fees directly support our many programs.

 For a cocktail party or gala banquet, the Hall of Fame is a stunning venue for any event.
