We went back to the west coast for the 2008 symposium. We chose the San Matteo Mariott for our venue. The Marriott was a nice location, but we did have some struggles with the convention staff and learned some valuable lessons about item costs and getting up front disclosure from the event staff.
Some highlights of the 2008 symposium included:
- Great food and buffets for our group meals.
- Reasonable room rates made it easier on the families.
- The location was very conducive to family vacations.
