It had been set to occur at the Nova Southeastern University’s Center of Excellence for Coral Reef Ecosystems Research.

“Because of gusty winds out on the water, Nova and Show Management have decided to move the Editor’s Choice Awards dinner to the beautiful W Hotel,” Grant said. “The W has been extremely cooperative in making that happen.”

The awards tribute and dinner will honor the best in the industry for 2012.

An aerial flyover that had been set for today is being rescheduled for 2:30 p.m. Sunday and the fireworks scheduled for Friday night are going to instead take place at 7 p.m. Sunday.
