Sheraton Universal Hotel

The Sheraton Universal Hotel​

The Sheraton Universal Hotel was chosen as the venue for the conference as it encompasses our conference theme, ​​Imagine: Change your Mind, Change the World.

The excitement of Southern California awaits you at Sheraton Universal Hotel, where we roll out the red carpet to make you feel at home. Situated next to Universal Studios Hollywood, our hotel plays host to musicians, actors and other entertainment industry stars; the Hollywood Bowl is just two miles away, and downtown Los Angeles is within easy reach via the Red Line Subway. Settle into recently refurbished accommodations, which showcase in-room Starbucks® Coffee and the Sheraton Signature Sleep Experience, as well as views of the Hollywood Hills, Universal Studios Hollywood or the San Fernando Valley. Break a sweat in the hotel fitness center, followed by a swim in the heated terrace pool. Sample flavorful dishes at California’s, our on-site restaurant, a vodka cocktail at In the Mix or a cool beverage at our laid-back poolside lounge. For those planning events in the Los Angeles area, we offer over 28,000 square feet of gracefully designed venues, including an expansive ballroom and scenic outdoor spaces.
