Hotel and Travel Information
PARTICIPANTS MUST BOTH RESERVE A ROOM WITH THE HOTEL AND REGISTER WITH THE CONFERENCE.
Reserving a Hotel Room:
Please make your reservations by December 28, 2012. The hotel will require a credit card number (plus expiration date) to guarantee the first night’s stay. Please note, most attendees will arrive on Saturday or Sunday (afternoon) and leave on Thursday (afternoon) (unless they wish to stay longer and enjoy the surrounding attractions). The Conference room rate is available three days before and after the meeting based on availability.
Due to limited space we recommend booking as early as possible--room availability is not guaranteed through this date; only the rates are guaranteed .

Kona International Airport (KOA) (18 Miles) is the primary airport on the Island of Hawaii. It serves international, overseas and interisland flights. KOA is located in West Hawaii in Keahole. The Big Island is known for its active volcanoes, orchids, golf courses and scenic coastline. We look forward to welcoming you to Kona.
Airline tickets to the Hawaiian Islands can really vary. Please check departures from all your nearest airports, in some cases the savings can be far greater than the inconvenience. Also, consider inner island flights, especially from Oahu to Kona. Consider using www.kayak.com for price comparisons.
