3) Dress code is business casual or better.

4) Our shindig is upstairs. There is an elevator available for those who require/prefer it.

5) There is no valet parking; however there is parking at the venue and feel free to drop someone off at the front entrance.

6) The check-in desk is at the top of the stairs to the left, where you will collect your ID badge.
