The 2017 Appliance Connexion Conference Cruise & Study Tour takes place over 28 September to 2 October.
You'll already have noted the inclusion above of the word "Cruise" and indeed delegates will fly Air New Zealand from Auckland to Los Angeles and transfer to Long Beach Port where they will board a Carnival Cruise liner for a three day / three night cruise!
Among the business sessions and seminars is the chance to disembark at Ensenada on the Baja Peninsula.
Day 4 is back on land at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows in Santa Monica, followed the next day by a Retail Study Tour in Santa Monica.
We'll bring you more details as they arrive.
Wares hopes to be able to report as usual on ACL's conference proceedings and the social interactivity - watch this space!
