Hotel and Transportation
Stay at the Conference Hotel and be a part of it all...
You will have a better Convergence® experience if you stay at the conference hotel. The close proximity to Convergence® activities and the ability to network with other attendees makes this an easy choice. In addition, by staying at the conference hotel you help keep future Convergence® rates low.
The hotel rates negotiated by HGA include many benefits for you and our organization. Based on the number of rooms we reserve and occupy; the hotel provides complimentary meeting room space – savings that are passed on to attendees through HGA’s registration rates. If the Convergence® conference is unable to meet its commitment because attendees are making reservations at other hotels, HGA is charged a fee to make up for lost revenue. If this becomes a trend, HGA would be forced to increase the registration fee and cut services.
Hotel reservations may be made beginning in August 2019. Rates do not include taxes. Parking is available for a fee.
