When you register for the conference we will reserve your hotel room for you. Everyone will receive their own room. Any additional days beyond the conference dates will be at your own expense. If you are extending your days, let us know and we'll reserve the room for those days.  The conference rate is available the day before and after the conference.  We make the reservation and then you self-pay when you get here.  The rate is $179 + taxes and fees.

Driving and other methods of transportation

If you are driving to the conference from at least 50 miles away you can be reimbursed for mileage. More details can be found on the reimbursement page. We will also reimburse for other modes of transportation to the conference (public transit, train, etc.) and parking at the hotel.

If you are driving to the hotel please use the valet parking. If you are staying at the hotel it will automatically be covered by us. If you are not staying at the hotel, please let us know when you check-in for the conference that you need a parking sticker. This will allow us to get a group rate on the parking and you won't need to submit any paperwork for reimbursement!
