About the Venue

Monterey is a city on California’s rugged central coast.  In 1769, the first European land exploration made it one of California’s first communities and was host to the first theater, public building, public library, publicly funded school, printing press, and newspaper in the state.   Also famous is Monterey Bay Aquarium, with thousands of marine life in interactive exhibits. 

The conference will be held at the Monterey Bay Portola Hotel and Spa located in the Central Business area and close to many of the early Spanish settlement areas, including the Presidio.
