Meet the organizers
State of Flow(rida) is organized by leaders in the Webflow community who live in Florida.
The core focus of State of Flow is to connect with online creators and build community around the world of web design. While Webflow is our main event sponsor, this is not an official Webflow event.
Over the course of the weekend we will be discussing things like web design, the future of work, how to be productive in a modern world and so many other conversations which are relevant to online creators.
If you make your money online by building digital experiences without code then this is an event you wont want to miss.
The original plan for State of Flow was to host a series of events in Sarasota, Orlando, Tampa, Miami, and beyond. This is because all of the organizers live in Florida and we wanted to do a Webflow Florida tour. WebFlorida anyone???
As we all started talking about it, we decided one big event would be a better use of our efforts so we shifted our focus.
Even after that, as we were considering locations we looked at places like Orlando and Miami, but the price would have been at least twice as expensive for tickets and hotels in Miami, and there are no beaches in Orlando.
Why not Tampa? Mostly because of the thriving creative culture in St Pete. Tampa is a bit bigger city, but St Pete is home to a thriving art community and we have found some amazing partners with the team at Coastal Creative.
We think this venue mixed with St Pete's tech-city beach-vibes will create a one of a kind event designed to propel the community forward.
We will be following the state of Florida recommendations for Covid health at State of Flow. This means we recommend, but are not requiring proof of vaccination. We will also not be testing attendees or requiring a negative test for entry. Participation is voluntary and attendees assume all risks associated with attending, including the risk of contracting COVID-19.
All State of Flow ticket sales are non-refundable as commitments will be made on your behalf at purchase. If you buy a ticket, and are not able to attend, please let us know and will work with you to gift your ticket to someone else.
You will be asked for dietary restrictions after you buy your ticket and have made all attempts possible to ensure that State of Flow is accessible. If you have accessibility concerns, please contact us as soon as possible by sending an email to SOF@raymmar.com so that we can answer your question or accommodate your request.
Coastal Creative is a commercial building with many entrances and various tenants who have 24/7 access to the building by contract. While we are renting the entire warehouse, we cannot guarantee that other people will not be in or out of the building at any given time during our event.
We make no presumption for safe storage of any bags or belongings while on site. We recommend checking in to your hotel to store your luggage.
You are more than welcome to bring your laptop, and there will be WiFi provided at the event. That being said, State of Flow is intended to be discussion driven and there will not be many tables and chairs like you might expect at a traditional conference. Instead you will find small areas set up for group discussions and small breakouts. You may want your laptop at times, but you might be better off with a notepad and pen.
Please note that organizers will not be able to secure computers, laptops, iPads, or other items not in use so anything you bring is your responsibility.
Reach out to the organizers with any questions at SOF@raymmar.com

State of Flow is a multimedia event which will be filmed from multiple angles. We will have some spaces for people who would prefer not to be on camera, but we realistically can not guarantee that you will not appear on camera at some point. Participating in the event constitutes consent to be filmed.
We are currently looking for event partners, promotion support, swag sponsors and volunteers. If you are interested in getting involved, please reach out to SOF@raymmar.com
State of Flow is an interactive retreat, not a traditional conference. This means that all of the breakouts and panels will be comprised of event attendees rather than pre-determined speakers.
If you would like to participate, buy a ticket and show up. There will be plenty of opportunities for attendees to share their thoughts in small groups, in front of our community cam, or during one of our interactive live streams.
All tickets are non refundable. However if you purchased a ticket, and cannot make it in person, please contact the organizers as soon as possible and we will work with you to transfer your ticket.
Ticket transfers will not be made after September 2.
