    Banquet Entertainment

    After the Thursday banquet and awards, we will have a beach themed evening to "Shellebrate EH", including a DJ spinning tunes and fun beach games.

    We will also be having various table games and pseudo-sport activities throughout the banquet hall.  Think Uno, Jenga, Cornhole, Kiddie bowling, etc.  Not for the faint of heart, we may even have a Cards Against Humanity table.  We hope to see you there!

    Dress: Think Hawaiian shirts, leis, and grass skirts (work appropriate), or otherwise it’s conference casual. 


    There is no dress code for this conference, but most people wear business casual to everything except the banquet.
