"The quality of the food was the best that I have experienced at a professional meeting."
"I appreciated the many opportunities to network with other researchers - at meals, during receptions and during sessions."
"The meeting was professionally helpful, but it was also a lot of fun. Make sure you send me information about the next meeting."

Orlando, is one of the top travel destinations in the United States. The weather is great (well except for summer which can be a bit warm), and with Disney and the many theme parks, it is the top destination for vacationing families. However Orlando has more than Mickey Mouse; the city is a short drive from the beach and there are is now a vibrant nightlife. With golf, NASA, and Universal Studios, Orlando is a great place to visit in December!
