CA.., An Eventective User from New York, NY

This place first of all is HUGE. I got lost a time or two. The part I loved most about it was how huge it was. We didn't have our meetings in just one room, but several throughout the course of the week. It was a great experience coming here and I actually made a few new friends who I now visit on my trips to CA. The owners and planners are extremely nice and cooperative. I would strongly recommend this place.
