Please join your fellow colleagues at the opening reception for this year’s SCA conference aboard the Queen Mary in Long Beach. In its time, the Queen Mary transatlantic ocean liner was unique as a grand new way for ocean travel with its elaborate Art Deco touches and upscale amenities. During its 30+ active years, it transported Hollywood stars, royalty and dignitaries across the Atlantic Ocean, only taking a break during WWII to serve as a troopship. Enjoy hors d’oeuvres and beverages (cash bar) in the beautiful Queen’s Salon until 9:30 PM.
Admission to the Opening Reception is included in the AGM Full Registration fee and a $35 fee will be charged for an additional guest.
To get to the Queen Mary from the Hilton, you have a few options:
