The symposium takes place in Orlando, FL at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Resort. The Grand Cypress is a huge and beautiful property with spectacular outdoor areas, with a massive water park-style pool, including grottos. The outdoor cafe sits next to a private lake equipped with kayaks and paddle boats, walking paths, hidden firepits great for hanging out and meeting up with friends in the evenings.

The Grand Cypress also is partnered with two Jack Nicklaus-designed golf courses: a links-style and an Agusta-style course with a driving range to warm up. Additionally, the Grand Cypress has a mini green for family fun or practice. The courses are designed to support natural wildlife with lots of water (ponds abound) features. Think gators!
