Bring a Guest

Bring a guest, and you will see that the ESW provides an opportunity for companions of ESW attendees to spend time together or on their own. They can visit historical, cultural locations nearby or they can simply spend time at the hotel.  During the Companion’s Luncheon, a local city representative provides information on area attractions.  Feel free to visit the Companion Program page for more details.

Registration as an ESW companion enables your guest to participate in evening social events, the Products and Services Exposition, breakfasts and lunches.

We look forward to seeing you there!
