 San Diego 2014 Conference Notes and Details:

**Hotel reservations and conference registration will begin on April 1, 2014. Both the hotel reservations system with the LPA room rate, and LPA conference registration will open on April 1. Conference Registration Books will be mailed by mid-March so that everyone has access to the schedule of events both online and in print prior to the hotel accepting any LPA reservations. LPA Registration must be paid before you have access to the hotel reservation. LPA confirmation codes will be required by Hyatt in order to make a hotel reservation.


The hotel is situated on the bay, bordering the Gaslamp Quarter, and is absolutely beautiful.


Rising from the 16 square-blocks are Victorian-era buildings and modern skyscrapers that stand side by side, housing more than 100 of the city's finest restaurants, pubs, nightclubs and retails shops, as well as offices and residential/work lofts. Downtown San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter is a veritable playground, rich with cultural offerings that include theatres, art galleries, symphony halls, concert venues and museums.


Baseball fans will enjoy Petco Park, where you can enjoy the game in sophisticated style in the Western Metal Building lounges, or take in the innings from the Park ball field with your kids. Fun with the family continues as you explore the whimsical and educational exhibitions at the New Children's Museum, climb aboard the U.S.S. Midway Museum, visit the candy store in Seaport Village or catch the Trolley for a quick ride to Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo.
