Indian Wells Ballroom
Party like the Rat Pack! Frank Sinatra and his entourage made Greater Palm Springs their playground for decades, leaving their mark on the area. We will start at 6:30 pm on the 18th Terrace & Lawn for cocktails. At 7:00 pm, bring your drink into the Indian Wells Ballroom to continue the party with dinner and Rat Pack era music. This event will have assigned seating. Your table number can be found on the back of your name badge.
Attire: Men and women are asked to dress in formal cocktail attire with a 1960's vibe! Think classy suits, skinny ties, pocket squares, and fedora hats for the men. Women can show off in a skinny sheath or pencil skirts and silk blouses.

Attire: Men and women are asked to dress in beachy casual for the event. Think laid back, cool and casual. Vintage tees, distressed denim and sandals is the California style!
The BSA Convention offers the best opportunity for the leadership of distributors and manufacturers to grow their relationships and set strategy for mutual business growth. This year, attendance at the convention is a must for all of us, to be able to move forward and rekindle those relationships that have been compromised over the past year.

I thought assigned seating for Sunday evening was a great idea. The "team" event made it an even better experience!

I very much liked the assigned seating, and felt that pushed people to meet each other - as a first time attendee, I liked it very much.

It was a beautiful setting, very well run meetings, and some excellent group activities. The camaraderie throughout the organization and the fact that relationships do matter was very apparent.
