Make Hotel Reservations Now for the 2010 Conference

Arrangements with the site for our 2010 conference are now complete. The Downtown Marriott at 75 South West Temple in Salt Lake City is excited to host our group Thursday evening, July 29th through Sunday morning, August 1st. The hotel boasts a great location in the center of downtown Salt Lake with dining and entertainment nearby. There is a large indoor/outdoor pool and they’ll be holding two conference rooms for use by our group.

For conference attendees, rooms at the hotel will cost $99 a night plus tax or for $109 a night plus tax the Marriott will include two adult breakfasts in the hotel restaurant along with the room. Ordinarily, adult breakfasts in the restaurant are $15 each so this is a nice discount.

These room prices are also available for check in as early as Monday, July 26th and as late as checkout Monday, August 2nd for those who would like to come early or stay a bit late to enjoy the city.

Not every room includes a microwave or refrigerator but those who would like them can request them for no additional charge when reservations are made.

Parking at the hotel for those who drive to the conference or rent a car will be $12 a day with unlimited reentry to the covered parking structure.

A shuttle to and from the airport will be available from a third party. The conference committee is negotiating prices for this and will have an update soon.

To make hotel reservations please call 1-800-455-8254. Remember to tell them you’re coming for the conference so you get the special group rate. The 2010 conference committee has reserved 35 rooms at the $99 or $109 rate and they will only be available until July 8th so please make your reservations now.
