This year’s venue is the beautiful Naples Grande Beach Resort. We have negotiated a very reasonable room rate of $105 per night and the hotel will honor this rate 3 days before and after the conference. There are no resort fees and no self-parking fee. The Paradise Coast area offers many opportunities for enjoyment. Consider bringing the family along so they can enjoy all the area has to offer.
