Conference Spotlight: Long Beach

Mark your calendar for November 3–5… you won’t want to miss this year’s CLA Annual Conference held in the beautiful City of Long Beach!

The conference will be held in the Long Beach Convention Center, situated only a block from the beautiful downtown waterfront. It’s within walking distance from over 100 quality restaurants, coffee shops, wine bars, ale houses, shopping, entertainment and attractions.

And while you’re in Long Beach, you’ll want to take in its world-famous attractions. The city is home to the majestic Queen Mary, a historic ocean liner that sailed the North Atlantic between 1936 and 1967, and served as a troopship during WWII. You can get up close and personal with some sea life at the Aquarium of the Pacific, which boasts more than 11,000 animals representing the diversity of the Pacific Ocean. Visitors can interact with sharks and rays, feed lorikeet birds, touch sea jellies, visit the Penguin Habitat, and more.

If you’re in the mood go to further afield, a beautiful hour-long cruise will take you to picturesque Catalina Island, offering everything from zip-lining to spa experiences. Long Beach is also a short distance from Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood, and Knott’s Berry Farm theme parks.

So come join us in Long Beach this Fall, and let's make some noise!
