The power of nature
Whether relaxing alongside the lions and giraffes after your intensive meeting or enjoying a run among the animals before the start of a busy day, you'll have the chance to interact with wildlife during the whole conference experience. The reinvigorating feel of being among trees, plants, and animals is sure to give an energizing and motivational edge to your convention and help delegates connect. What's more, the FMCCA is part of the ZOO Foundation, meaning that the money spent at the conference center directly contributes to efforts in the fields of animal welfare and nature conservation.
