Reno, Nevada: Come for the conference, stay for Nevada.

 Been to Reno? If so, then you know why you want to come back. Never been to Reno? Then you're in for a real treat!

Reno is located on the eastern side of the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains. From the casinos to its unprecedented natural surroundings, Reno is a city rich in both tradition and exciting entertainment. 

Forty-five minutes from world-famous Lake Tahoe (Emerald Bay at Lake Tahoe pictured right), the Reno-Sparks community is surrounded by natural beauty and limitless recreational opportunities.  The Reno-Sparks-Lake Tahoe region has over 18 world-class ski resorts, many just a short 45 minutes from downtown, and 40-plus golf courses.  World-class fishing, hiking, biking, kayaking, and numerous other outdoor activities abound. The area also boasts 60 gaming locations with excellent entertainment and restaurants, the National Bowling Stadium, the National Automobile Museum, the Nevada Museum of Art and the historic silver boomtown of Virginia City. The Reno Rodeo will also be in town at the time of the conference (and after).

High-peaked mountains surround the region in every direction. The geography ranges from high desert hills to valleys covered with deciduous and evergreen trees. The Truckee River flows casually through the heart of the city, winding its way through an eclectic mixture of stately manors, quaint churches, sleek high rises, city parks, and casinos. Shopping malls and new residential developments canvas the city limits and are nestled against mountains that offer endless outdoor recreation, and cradle the magnificent Lake Tahoe.

Calling itself “The Biggest Little City In The World”, Reno offers an extraordinary mix of history and culture, world-class ski and golf resorts, gaming and entertainment, a mild climate with four distinct seasons, a healthy, diverse economy, and an enduring sense of community spirit.

Reno now has it's very own Triple-A baseball team and a brand new stadium, within walking distance of the conference hotel. The Reno Aces have tickets available from $5-$29 dollars and there is no bad seat in the house!
