In an effort to bring you as much educational content as possible and make the best use of everyone's time, we are not scheduling any trips to the SMS headquarters in the agenda.

Sales Forum concludes the week before the College World Series begins. SMS is not planning any event or activities to correspond with the CWS. If you want to stay to catch a game or just sample some more of what Omaha has to offer, it's important to act quickly to reserve a hotel room. The opening weekend of the NCAA's College World Series is one of the city's premiere events, and hotels sell out months in advance.

In addition to the training during the day, SMS will host a cocktail reception on Monday the 4th and dinner events on the 5th and 6th. Other than that, you are free to explore the city. The Marriott Downtown Omaha is in the heart of the new Capitol Entertainment District. Omaha is home to one of the nation's top zoos, and other top-ranked museums, restaurants and tourist attractions.
