ER7 – The Venue

In the last email, I gave you a brief overview of my event we will be having December 2nd and 3rd in San Francisco. In this email, I want to tell you about the venue.

A brief history of past venues:

  • ER7 Spring of 2008 SF – We chose a great venue called the Hotel Vitale in San Francisco. It was a smaller boutique hotel with water views. The hotel staff gave everyone first class treatment and it was great. We dined at Boulevard the first night of the event, where GaryV ordered wine for everyone and then later even shot one of his episodes with a few of our attendees. The second night we dined at Waterbar – personally my favorite seafood place in the world (but I am a crab lover).
  • ER8 Fall of 2009 NYC – This year we headed to the city of New York, which can be fast-paced and overwhelming to say the least. We chose the Hotel Gansevoort because, well, it was the classiest place in NYC to have an event! We spared no expense, and when we were not in the classroom working one on one with attendees, we were dining on the rooftop overlooking Manhattan. Everyone kept talking about how amazing the venue was. For dinner we ate at STK and sat next to celebrities – Bruce Willis and former NFL star Laurence Talyor (LT). It was an amazing night!

But we don’t just set up and pick up the tab for these these amazing dinners. We also have an amazing menu for lunch and breakfast every day. You are going to absolutely love it!

We want the Elite Retreat to be an amazing life-changing experience for you, so we spare no expense when selecting the proper venues.

So without further ado, I am very proud to announce this year’s Elite Retreat (ER7) will be held at the prestigious Clift Hotel in San Francisco.

I think they put it best when describing this one of a kind space: “An inspired fusion of old-world hotel elegance with distinctly contemporary energy and glamor, the nearly century-old Clift’s modern and daring sense of diversity perfectly captures the city’s spirit. Steps from Union Square shopping and the legendary Nob Hill, Clift is perfectly located for sightseeing, shopping and socializing.” Our event will be held in various meeting spaces throughout the hotel over the two days.

So mark your calendars for December 2nd and 3rd at the Clift Hotel, San Francisco.

In the next email I will announce the official speaker list and agenda for this year’s event.

We will open registration next Tuesday, September 28th, 2010.

Also – We have plenty of sponsorship opportunities available and will have a media kit out soon. Shoot over an email to for more information.
