The closest garage is the Walnut Street Garage at the corner of Walnut Street and Court Street (an alley). If you bring your parking ticket with you to the event, you can stop by the Hilton's Business Center/Gift Shop (or front desk) for $5 discounted parking. NOTE: This garage is often very full and there are only two attendant stations, which becomes very busy when everyone leaves our event. Please expect a delay in exiting the garage.

7:30AM: Registration & Buffet Breakfast
8:15AM: Welcome & Opening remarks
8:25AM: Guest Speaker {Scott Sechler, President/Chairman, Sechler Family Foods Inc. (dba Bell and Evans)}
8:45AM: Awards Presentation
9:45AM: Group Photo, networking & special publication distributed

Business attire

We did not issue tickets for the event. Instead, each registered attendee will have a name badge to collect at the event welcome desk that morning. A guest list at registration will also verify their attendance.

We cannot offer refunds after September 16, 2014. If one of your registered attendees can no longer make it, you are welcome to send a substitute. Please email me the replacement name, or we can switch out the name badge the morning of the event.

Seats have been assigned based on who you registered with and we tried our best to seat people in the same company together. Tables were assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

In the interest of time, companies will not be asked to speak, but they will be called to the stage to accept their award and take a picture with sponsors.

Guest Speaker:
Scott I. Sechler, President/Chairman, Sechler Family Foods Inc. (dba Bell & Evans)
