Power Forward Parking Information

It’s time for the seventh event in the Power Forward Speaker Series, presented by First Commerce Credit Union, and we are ready for Tallahassee’s largest annual business event!

Power Forward with Peter Diamandis is set for Tuesday, Feb. 4, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. at Ruby Diamond Concert Hall, 222 S. Copeland St. Doors will open 1 hour in advance at 2:30 p.m., and you will need your event ticket for admission. If you have not received your ticket or have misplaced it, please contact the FSU Fine Arts Ticket Office. Please arrive on time. To minimize the disruption to our speaker and audience, the doors will close when the program begins at 3:30 p.m. Late arrivals will be accommodated by escorting them to seats that minimize the disruption to the program.


Parking on FSU’s campus is limited, so please carpool as much as possible and allow plenty of time to find a place to park. All parking is on a first-come, first-served basis. General parking is available in the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center lot at the main entrance on Pensacola Street and at the Railroad Ave. lot (south of the Civic Center). Show your ticket for free admission. Trolleys will be available for rides to Ruby Diamond Concert Hall from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. but space is limited. If needed, you can catch the trolley at the FSU Turnbull Conference Center (555 W. Pensacola St.) in the circle drive located at the main entrance on Pensacola St. Look for the “trolley pick-up” signs. Return trolley service will be available after the event from 5 to 5:30 p.m.


Questions may be submitted to @FirstCommerceCU via Twitter before and during the event using our event hashtag #PwrFwd. Question cards will also be distributed and collected onsite at the beginning of the event. We will cover as many questions as possible in the time allotted for the Q&A toward the end of the event.


Please follow @FirstCommerceCU and post about the event using the hashtag #PwrFwd and you will be entered into a drawing for an autographed copy of Peter Diamandis’ latest book, “The Future Is Faster Than You Think.”


Tickets remain available on the main level of Ruby Diamond! Additional tickets may be purchased at tickets.fsu.edu until 1:30 p.m. on the day of the event ($40* base price for main level seating and $30* base price for balcony seating). Tickets also will be sold at the FSU Fine Arts Ticket Office (in the lobby of the Fine Arts Building at 540 W. Call St.) from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and then at the door at Ruby Diamond starting at 2:30 p.m.
