Additional Information

Can we bring children? Yes! We’d love for friends and family to share in the achievements of our graduates and honorees. Note that there will be several speeches during the formal program. To ensure that we treat each speaker with courtesy, we would respectfully ask that children be accompanied by an adult to help if they become restless during the event.
Will there be food? We recommend you eat dinner beforehand. We will provide cookies, coffee, tea, and water. A cash bar will also be available. 
What do I wear? We suggest business-business casual attire, as this is a business environment honoring local entrepreneurs.
Where should I park? Free parking will be available in the hotel’s parking lot off of Calle Puerto Vallarta.
Where do I go once I get to the Fess Parker? The event will be held in the Santa Ynez and San Rafael rooms, which are closest to the parking lot and entrance off Calle Puerto Vallarta.
