Things to do

Though the modern conference spaces are airy, and bright, long days of intensive thought, inspiring information, and engaging conversation may leave you craving rest and relaxation. 

If you are planning for an extended stay, take advantage of the perfect weather in Tempe and visit the Desert Botanical Garden, hike Papago Park, enjoy world-renowned golf courses, or go to a Spring Training game.
