Every day offers an unforgettable memory: a mother moose and calf, glaciers and mountains, unique Native cultures, our Russian lega- cy and Gold Rush days. Even lifelong Alaskans are amazed! This is a perfect state for groups that want to get away from the big city and enjoy a quiet meet- ing in calm relaxing environment. ••JUNEAU•• Alaska's capital city – welcomes visi- tors to their scenic coastal shores and offers a long-standing tradition of hospital- ity. Located just two hours north of Seattle and served by Alaska Airlines year-round and Delta Airlines during the summer, Juneau is surprisingly easy to get to! Juneau can accommodate conven- tions of up to 600 people, retreats, com- mittee meetings, and regional confer- ences. Conveniently located within walk- ing distance to hotels, restaurants, and attractions, Centennial Hall Convention Center sits on Juneau's waterfront, and its flexible 17,000 sq. ft. will meet your event and vendor space requirements. Many of Juneau's meeting locations are also in majestic settings. Just imagine your opening reception atop Mount Roberts, offering sweeping views of the town and valley below, or along the banks of the Gastineau Channel or Auke Lake.
