We'll make sure that your training, the classroom, and seminar materials are the very best they can possibly be. This we can control, and we work hard to make sure we exceed your expectations. However, there are several things that are simply out of our control. A little preparation can really help ensure that your travel to and from the convention center and day with us is enjoyable.
Make sure you have directions and driving instructions in hand, and know our location within the convention center. Many centers are very large and difficult to navigate. Knowing exactly where you're going can save a large amount of time and frustration.
