Attendees will have the opportunity to tour the newly renovated Long Beach Convention Center; including the new arena special event space, the first of its kind anywhere with over 45,000 square feet of “loft-style” event space, it truly is the first of its genre. The conference will take place in the Center Theater, which has been home to the TED conference the last 5 years and was recently remodeled.
