Dinner at Casa Casuarina (The Gianni Versace House), this venue is not open to the public (members only) and our delegates and special guests including presenters and their partners were privy to an evening of decadence, surrounded by beautiful statues, velvet furnishings and candles.

Built in 1930 by the philanthropist, architect and Standard oil heir, Aldan Freeman, Casa Casuarina pays homage to the oldest existing house in the Western Hemisphere, The “Alcazar de Colon” – home to Christopher Columbus’ son. In 1992, renowned designer Gianni Versace saw the Casa and fell in love with it. He purchased the home and began a meticulous restoration of the interior as well as the creation of the South Wing and pool. During this time there, the world would pass through the Casa’s iron gates and the home took on internationally renowned status.
