The rates are $75 for two queens; $80 for a king and a pull out couch; $100 for a suite. Additional days before and after the conference are available at the above rate. Continental breakfast and a light dinner for everyone in your party are included in the above rate. A shuttle will be available to transport guests to the conference venue.
Activities for Children: We will have space at the conference venue set aside for children’s activities. There will be volunteers in these rooms, but this will not be “drop-off” child care. Parents will need to check on their children regularly and volunteer to staff the room during a few sessions.
