About the Venue

The conference will be held in the beautiful Crowne Plaza Redondo Beach & Marina Hotel, which is only 7 miles (11.2 km) away from the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The location is only steps from the Redondo Beach and the bike path that runs along the South Bay in Los Angeles. Also within walking distance is a marina that offers opportunities for fishing, sailing, and free outdoor concerts.  The marina has many restaurants, a water park, and seal flocks.

Visa Information

The sites http://www.unitedstatesvisas.gov & http://travel.state.gov have information about obtaining a visa for those traveling to the United States. Both sites have links to websites for U.S. embassies and consulates worldwide. The embassy and consulate websites have very helpful information about procedures, timelines, communities served, required documentation, and fees.

International registrants should be particularly aware and careful about visa requirements, and should plan travel well in advance. All visa inquiries must be handled by ACM HQ.
