Conference Venue

Saddlebrook, the legendary Tampa Bay Resort, has made a name for itself as a superb meeting location and one of the preeminent training facilities for athletes.  The resort is located on 480 acres of rolling terrain surrounded by lagoons and cypress trees.  Saddlebrook was purposely planned as a car-free “walking village” ensuring guests can easily walk throughout the entire resort.  The resort’s 540 suites showcase an inviting rich tropical design and are clustered around nine serene courtyards complete with gardens, stone benches, stone paver walkways, and native lush Florida landscaping.

The hotel rooms offer 400 square feet of contemporary luxury with either a private balcony or patio.  Each room has a generously-sized desk with two chairs, wireless internet access and dual-line speaker phones.  In addition there is a 42” flat-screen television, Keurig coffee-maker, an iHome Bluetooth Wireless FM clock radio with USB charging, iron/ironing board, in-room safe and a hair dryer.

The meeting facilities at Saddlebrook are unrivaled.

There are two Arnold Palmer signature golf courses and a championship tennis complex that features 45 courts including four Grand Slam surfaces.  The Sports Village features two adjacent fitness centers, one sand and two grass volleyball courts, a regulation-size basketball court, and three swimming pools including the Superpool, a half-million gallon free-form pool.  In addition, Saddlebrook features a luxurious European-style spa that features a full menu of body treatments.

Saddlebrook is conveniently located one mile east of I-75 at exit 279, which is 30 minutes north of Tampa International Airport.

General Information about ECI

Engineering Conferences International (ECI) is a global engineering conferences program, originally established in 1962, that provides opportunities for the exploration of problems and issues of concern to engineers and scientists from many disciplines.

The format of the weeklong research conference provides morning and late afternoon or evening sessions in which major presentations are made. Available time is included during the afternoons for ad hoc meetings, informal discussions, and/or recreation. This format is designed to enhance rapport among participants and promote dialogue on the development of the meeting. We believe that the conferences have been instrumental in generating ideas and disseminating information to a greater extent than is possible through more conventional forums.

All participants are expected both to attend the entire conference and to contribute actively to the discussions. The recording of lectures and presentations is forbidden. As ECI conferences take place in an informal atmosphere, casual clothing is the usual attire.
