Trade Show Time! SoCal Hotel and Lodging Conference at the Palm Pacific Hotel Resort

Here’s a blog that never got posted! The conference was at the end of May.

I traveled to the City of Industry to the Palm Pacific Hotel Resort  and Spa for the Southern California Hotel and Lodging Conference.  It was a fun event in beautiful hotel with lots of good people to meet, vendor booths to visits, and free swag (“stuff we all get”) to collect.

Yes, that’s right, there is a beautiful resort and conference center in the City of Industry.  It even has it’s own 18 hold championship golf course and driving range.

Tray passed appetizers: Crab cake balls, vegetable quesadilla cones, beef wellington puffs, tomato and cheese on mini-bruschetta toast, and chicken potstickers. I didn’t drink the wine because I have to work tonight, just alternated between the iced tea and lemonade.
