HCAF 2016 Annual Conference: Know Before You Go

Posted by Jason Lewallen on July 25, 2016

 

Before I tell you about the conference, I want to give you a true, “know before you go” tip. The Renaissance Orlando is fantastic beyond just visiting the tourist sights. It has an incredible waterpark and splash pad as well as a poolside bar with some of the best “loaded waffle fries” you have ever indulged in (and potentially regretted eating later). The hotel rooms are spacious and they feel like a true getaway regardless of if you are attending solo or bringing the family. So what is my tip? Book an extra day and give yourself some time to soak in everything you have learned. You will not regret it.
