Honoree Lounge
Please be sure to check out a special feature to the Conference for all 2012 Honorees and Honoree Alumni - The Honoree Lounge.  This space is available for your use during conference hours on Monday and Tuesday and is presented for your assistance. Here you can mingle with other past and present Premier 100 honorees, as well as enjoy some special conveniences including: complimentary internet access, computers/printers to print boarding passes, beverages/snacks, and a place to store your luggage (while space allows). 

For 2012 Honorees, are you looking to ship your plaque home, instead of hand carrying it in your luggage?  Stop by the Honoree Lounge before Tuesday night and fill out a Fed Ex form and drop it off with the lounge attendant.  Then, after Tuesday’s gala, you can drop off the plaque at the Honoree Lounge and we will take care of arranging the shipment on Wednesday morning.

We will be happy to assist you with anything you may need - restaurant suggestions, hotel questions, help with transportation – just ask!
