The Conference Location

Oh, friends, do we have something special on tap for you! We’ve relocated the conference to Alpharetta, Georgia- a bustling community 20 miles north of metro Atlanta. Alpharetta was listed as #24 of the top 50 places to live in America by Money Magazine, and Forbes ranked Alpaharetta as the seventh friendliest town in America. The town is brimming with dozens of parks and public art installations. It’s a little slice of heaven! In the heart of Alpharetta, you’ll find Avalon.

Avalon is a new experience in the timeless art of living well. This sustainably designed, 86-acre community features more than 500,000 square feet of retail, a 12-screen all premium theater, conference center and full-service hotel, alongside luxury homes. Avalon infuses resort-level hospitality throughout a walkable, seamlessly connected community of shopping, dining, entertainment, living and working. It's more than just another place to go, it's a place to be — a hub of activity that delivers the luxury of the modern South. And it’s our home base for the 2020 Southeastern Bath & Body Conference.

At Avalon, you’ll discover more than a dozen local, chef-driven restaurants perfect for a fun night out with friends. In the mood to shop or do a little “retail reconnaissance”?  Anthropologie, Apple, Chanel, Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn, West Elm, Williams Sonoma, J. Crew, L’Occitane, Lululemon, Madewell, Paper Source, Posman Books, Sundance, Urban Outfitters, Vineyard Vines,and dozens more are all steps away from the hotel. There’s a generously-sized Starbucks in the lobby and a serene, world-class Woodhouse Day Spa right across the street. Grab a scoop of famous Jeni’s Ice Cream and swing on the porch swings under twinkling cafe lights- Avalon is a magical place and we can’t wait for you to experience it!
