Housing and conference location
The official conference hotel is the Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort & Spa and a block of rooms have been reserved for conference participants at significantly reduced rates.These are the same rates that the previous venue were schedule to charge us. The Sheraton is a recently remodeled facility which is about 10 km south of our previous location. The Sheraton Keahou Bay is located on Keauhou Bay on the Kona Coast and offers outstanding conference facilities. The rates for the Sheraton include significant amenities (complementary internet in the conference area and rooms, complementary parking and complementary shuttle service to Kona) which also make this excellent value. Additional information will be provided soon regarding the full complement of amenities included in the rate. Staying at the conference hotel is very important to keeping the conference rates as low as possible. It is also important to make reservations early as the block of rooms get released for the general public as we get closer to the conference date.
