The location of our 17th conference is an upscale Southern California coastal resort-style hotel. The Loews sits on a private 15-acre peninsula, surrounded by water with rooms offering views of its private marina, the Pacific Ocean, Coronado Bay and Bridge and the San Diego skyline. The hotel boasts newly renovated and spacious conference facilities with state-of-the-art AV services.

The hotel is 4 miles (6.5 km) from the Village of Coronado and 10 miles (16 km) from San Diego International Airport.

It is highly recommended that you stay at the Loews. It can be challenging driving from downtown San Diego to the hotel with traffic and the limited availability of ride share options.
