      centers. NN holds their plenary sessions there. The room holds enough tables of ten to hold all attendees, this year, over 2500.

      In years past, you wander in, find a seat, usually way in the back. I found this frustrating so I began reserving tables for the SFKossacks in 2007 up front so we had a place to gather and bond. We had one table then. Each year we grew in attendance.

      The plenary sessions are for the opening and closing keynote which always features big names:

      Al gore is here!!!!!!!!!

      The plenary sessions also occur at noon and feature great speakers meant to be interesting for huge populations. They are. Sometimes a box lunch is provided and we appreciate those and love dining together. Very relaxing.

      Last year, I organized 4 tables with the blessing of NN. This year? Just look at the roster above. Sweet!

      Now for each panel, those are held in small ballrooms that hold 50 to 100 people. Those can't be reserved.

      I hope this helps.
