|Bunny, I think that the more you take him to places like this, the easier it will get. Taking him there you've taken the edge off his energy with a good run might help too.
I'd be considering just standing in one spot and rewarding any checking in with you, even if at first it's just an ear flick in your direction. Yes, you may be standing there for a while!!
Are you allowed to use a long line to give him a bit more freedom?
I really liked all of Lucille's suggestions.
If he is that super excited and distracted in new environments, I'd be practicing focus exercises in the car in the parking lot (with the very real possibility that you guys might not get to leave the parking lot during that first session).
