Hyatt Regency sold
The Hyatt Regency in Newport sold last fall to Gurney's Resorts and has been re-branded Gurney's Newport Resort. Gurney's is well known for running a high-end resort in Montauk, NY. Otherwise it's the same hotel our conference was at last year. It's a unique venue, the only hotel in Newport located on an island so every room has a water view. The hotel just underwent a multi-million dollar renovation. Our conference was held here two years ago, so if you attended then you'll remember what a beautiful property it is.

Our conference returns for a third year to one of the top destinations in New England - Newport, RI. It's famed for its sights, shopping and dining. Shown here is Bowen's Wharf, the center of the dining district. Unlike in previous years, dinner on Monday night is on your own, so you can sample some of the great restaurants Newport has to offer. According to a USA Today newspaper review, here's their list of the top 10 restaurants in Newport here.
