All meetings will be held at GPR 2002's official hotel - The Radisson
Hotel Santa Barbara. Field demonstrations are planned at a nearby park.

The Radisson Hotel Santa Barbara 
Adjacent to Santa Barbara's famous East Beach, and overlooking the harbor, the Radisson Hotel Santa Barbara offers spectacular ocean views and sunsets.


The historic hotel with its Spanish Mission-style arches and courtyards opened its doors in 1931 to cater to Hollywood celebrities visiting the seaside resort. Today, it hosts business groups and vacationers from all over the globe.

From the hotel, it's an easy walk along the beach (about a mile) to Stearn's Wharf and State Street - where downtown meets the beach, at the Dolphin Fountain. There is also a free shuttle service. Stearn's Wharf was built in 1872 and is the oldest operating wharf on the West Coast. This historic area features hundreds of small shops and quaint restaurants as well as a bustling nightlife with numerous bars and clubs that host local bands and entertainers.

The upscale Paseo Nuevo Shopping Mall is located one mile north on State Street, with large department stores such as Macy's and Nordstrom's and nearby Saks Fifth Avenue.
