MOTM 2022. The 30th Annual Meeting of the Minds, "Where the Smiles Have Been," is scheduled for Wednesday, November 2, 2022 through Sunday, November 6, 2022 in Key West, Florida.

Meeting of the Minds 2023 will take place in a city other than Key West for the first time since 1997. The MOTM Site Committee, with the approval of the PHIP Board of Directors has now officially determined that Key West will not be the host city for MOTM 2023. The inquiry into alternate locations became necessary when Casa Marina Resort announced early this year that it is undergoing a major renovation, which the resort agreed to delay until after this year's event. As details about the renovation have evolved, it is apparent that the planned changes to the grounds would make it physically impractical to hold Meeting of the Minds at the location in future years even if the economic obstacles could be overcome. The Committee has researched other potential venues and determined that no other venue in Key West is suitable for producing Meeting of the Minds without fundamentally changing the nature of the event.

A change in the basic structure of the event is possible, and thus a return to Key West for MOTM at some point is not out of the question. Nonetheless, the wise planning parrot head would take note: Meeting of the Minds will definitely be held elsewhere, certainly in 2023, most likely in 2024, perhaps indefinitely. If you are a MOTM Bucket Lister who's never pulled the trigger, or a long-time attendee wanting to be part of the last licks in Key West, this is your year.
