Intimate Event Spaces

With over 60,000 square feet of event space, freshly lighted workshop rooms, and a flexible rooftop event space with stunning views we knew our attendees could learn, work, and network in the casual setting.

Reasonably Priced Stay

The BPE team secures a room block for attendees to ensure the price of their stay for the event is reasonably priced. The room block has continually sold out over the years so be sure to book rooms early!

OUR RECOMMENDED STAY

We recommend booking your stay from May 20th – May 24th for a stress-free visit!

We strive for our attendees to gain as much valuable education, networking opportunities, and free-time with friends & acquaintances. That’s why we recommend arriving the day before the event, and leaving the day after the event ends! Plan ahead, book your stay today before the room block sells out!
