Producers in Paradise 2024

Let's give a shout out to our sponsors. ( and click on their logo to visit their website)

Join me and other members of Killing Commercial for this #CBK members-only fun-in-the-sun event in Key West Florida. 

In June we are having our 4th annual #CBK event in Key West, FL. All Killing Commercial members are welcome to attend and are encouraged to bring their significant others with them. While we highly encourage everyone to bring their spouse or significant other for the weekend, Key West is not the most conducive environment for a typical family vacation. Especially for little ones.  If you would like to bring your kids, please reach out to David Carothers as he can suggest some alternative lodging arrangements that would be more family friendly than Duval St.

The dates are Thursday 6/20 through Monday 6/24. You cover your travel, food, and lodging and I’ll cover the fishing and knowledge sharing and promise you will not be bored.

Don’t worry about the times we are meeting.  The spouse/significant other group always have plans to keep them busy. They won’t be disappointed.

Most of our activities are centered around Duval St. so please plan your stay accordingly. 

Offshore fishing is on Sunday. It is an all-day trip. All members are welcome to come fishing but it is OK if you chose to do something else.  In the interest of limited space and cost, we respectfully ask that the fishing excursion be limited to agents and spouses/significant others only. 

Each year, we have an end of event dinner where a bunch of our fish gets cooked up family-style and everyone ets to enjoy the rewards of a day on the water. It was a huge hit.

I can promise 3 things.

  1. You will have an awesome time hanging out.
  2. You will catch some awesome fish on awesome boats and
  3. Just like last year, there will be enough nuggets found in the breakout sessions that you will write an exponent of what it costs you to join us. third

Key West will never be the same...
