Your arrival time is indicated on your confirmation form. Please assemble at the front desk in the main foyer located adjacent to the tall Tin Soldier and the River Market.

What happens with late arrivals?
Please let the host know if you expect one of your guests to be late so arrangements are made for them to join the group immediately upon their arrival.
