We will be at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress in Orlando, FL, October 10-13, 2018.
Conference participants can start making hotel reservations at our negotiated rates after April 14, 2018. We will post the direct link to the reservation site here when it becomes available.
A Note from the Site Selection Committee
It is very important for conference attendees to stay at our conference hotel. SSSA’s ability to negotiate favorable room rates and to obtain meeting rooms at affordable rates depends on conference attendees filling a minimum number of “room nights” in the conference hotels. If the Association does not meet its contractual obligation of room nights, we are liable to the hotels for large fees.
Convention attendees choosing not to stay in the hotel will incur a surcharge equivalent to one night stay in the conference hotel.
We will NOT waive the hotel surcharge even for reasons such as the hotel is too expensive, disagree with policies of certain individuals/institutions, living on limited income, other affordable hotels with better accommodations, missing the hotel reservation deadline, et cetera. We will not waive the hotel surcharge.
For the full statement and rationale for this policy, please visit our Conference Hotel Policy Page.
Our conference hotel rates are significantly lower than the regular published price. However, please be advised that limited rooms are available to us especially during the days prior to and after the official meeting days and the contracted cut-off date for making reservations.
