UPDATE: KIRK Calls 'Student Action Summit' the 'Super Bowl for Turning Point USA'

As of December 3rd, Candace Owens, the Communications Director at TPUSA stated in a tweet that the conference has received "6,000 applications and climbing for the biggest @TPUSA student summit— ever."

The Palm Beach Post reports: 

Turning Point’s Student Action Summit begins Wednesday and continues through Saturday at the Palm Beach County Convention Center. The event expects to draw 5,000 student activists — making it one of the larger conventions hosted at the convention center.

The group, which also held its annual summit in West Palm Beach last year, draws some of the biggest names in the Trump administration and conservative news outlets. Speakers include Donald Trump Jr. and his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle, Treasury Secretary Wilbur Ross, Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham, film-maker Dinesh D’Souza, former White House press secretary Anthony Scaramucci and Governor-elect Ron DeSantis.

With excitement in the air, the highly anticipated conservative student conference will host speakers among the likes of Donald Trump Jr. and girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle, Anthony Scaramucci, and Tucker Carlson among others. 

Speaker announcements in the past weeks for the 2018 Turning Point USA'S Student Action Summit have come in waves on social media:

Townhall's own Guy Benson and Katie Pavlich will also be in attendance to speak at the event later this week.

The organization has also advertised for its first annual "Winter Gala" which will feature Rush Limbaugh who is being awarded a "life-time achievement award" from the conservative youth organization. A ticket for the "Mar-a-Lago" dinner with Kirk among others will run you $2,500.  

Yet, not all are happy with Turning Point USA as Gab.com, a new social media platform, has claimed that its sponsorship was pulled from the conference without an apparent reason. 

UPDATE: A spokesperson for TPUSA, sent Townhall the following comment from TPUSA Founder, Charlie Kirk.

“Student Action Summit is like the Super Bowl for Turning Point USA every year. It’s an opportunity for thousands of attendees to be a part of the largest gathering of young, conservative activists in the nation, and to hear and learn from some of the most influential conservative thought leaders all in one place. Every year this event gets bigger and better and 2018 is no exception. There’s just nothing like the Student Action Summit and we’re honored to be able to host this amazing conference.”
