And the Year Two First Place Winner Will Be….

…announced at the Hotel del Coronado!

The Year Two Competition Awards Ceremony will take place at the famous Hotel del Coronado on Thursday, May 23, 2013. Starting with an evening reception hosted by MathWorks on the Windsor Lawn, attendees can experience the ultimate southern California beach setting! Guests will then venture to the Ocean View Ballroom to enjoy the panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean during the evening dinner banquet and Awards Ceremony.

Built in 1888 with its iconic Victorian architecture, the Hotel del Coronado provides breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean.  Known to have “more fame and historical significance than perhaps any hotel in North America,” this National Historic Landmark will be celebrating its 125th birthday in 2013.

  • One of the most famous visitors was England’s Prince of Wales in 1920 – he would later become King Edward VIII
  • The movie Some Like it Hot, featuring Marilyn Monroe, was filmed at The Del
  • Some of America’s legends, including Thomas Edison, Babe Ruth and Charles Lindburgh have been honored at The Del
