There are around 3,000 delegates at this conference; however, despite being a massive building with many guests this operation is running like a well-oiled machine. Cheerful staff at every turn bearing trays of this and that, seemingly all day long.
Some workshop hits some misses but overall a very informative day.
Aren't you glad that pictures don't count as calories?! Me, on the other hand - well, I get congratulations for resisting the 'big-as-your-head' cookies. Mind you a rather shocking amount of other grastronomical delights did make it into my belly. Tomorrow I must exercise more restraint.
|The Tower of America - guiding my way.|
|The Henry Gonzalez Conference Centre - it is a big place!|
|I started off well for breakfast.|
|These cookies are literally 5 inches across - easy. No, No, No.|
|Then there was a little bit of this. . . .|
|Time to head back for the second keynote address over lunch.|
|Most of the gang is already here.|
|Wow, that was some serious lunch.|
|After some more sitting it was time for warm pretzels and full packages of M & M's and packages of peanuts. Really? More food? Twist my arm.|
|More sitting followed by an outdoor dinner reception. It was actually much nicer than this picture suggests but it was dark where we were.|
|I missed taking shots of most of the food as we were standing at talk tables clutching plates and a drink.|
|Hmm, there are those cookies again. I went for the fruit because that cancels out the cake and M and M's. It's the new math - didn't you know?!|
