Why should you stay in the headquarters hotel?
Given the current economic situation, it is more important than ever that you stay in the conference hotel. It is by contracting sleeping rooms that we can significantly reduce hotel charges for meeting room rental.
When the sleeping rooms are not utilized, we face significant financial penalties. As a result, these penalties ultimately force us to raise registration fees and reduce amenities.
We strongly encourage you to stay in the conference hotel and appreciate your help in this endeavor.
