To put it bluntly, this is the best venue I have ever seen to host an event like this. I have never seen a place that balances luxury amenities with the homey feel of a small town. The focus will surely be on the conference and the learning opportunities, but once the lectures have ended, attendees will be able to unwind and enjoy the type of luxuries I have not ever seen at a conference venue. I look forward to walking the halls of the hotel with many other SFBT professionals.
