Marina Village was a big hit last year. A laid back venue with lots of classrooms, views of the water, quiet places to chat and hangout, close to the hotel and boat-friendly. We have a plan for improving the wifi and we'll have new projectors. And of course we'll have great coffee. This year we'll be selling food tickets for the food trucks because of a city+food truck issue but will be simple to do.
