Venue

The Kimpton Brice

The Kimpton Brice Hotel is like any good Southern belle — beautiful and poised on the outside, a bit sassy and rebellious on the inside. Enjoy the boutique hotel’s urban resort vibe right in the center of Savannah’s National Historic Landmark District, filled with museums, churches, gardens, monuments, mansions and more. In fact, The Kimpton Brice Hotel is centrally located in the historic district, just a cobblestone’s throw away from the famed River Street and walking distance to City Market. No need to choose between storied and modern when you can get both at The Kimpton Brice Hotel.

Agenda

With an all-encompassing event focused on four vertical market segments; education, healthcare, hospitality and workplace, the complete schedule consists of top notch CEU educational  sessions, networking opportunities that you don't experience at other  events  and  an intimate setting to learn and exchange in both private and group meetings. And     of course, some down time to relax a bit, catch up on being away from the office, and time to experience the local flavor – that means more activities and experiences that allow you to discover the enchanting soul of Savannah (voted one of the "Top U.S. Cities" (#3) by Travel + Leisure, July 2018.)
