Please note: Quartz Events covers the night of October 29th for your staff. We will automatically book that night and any additional nights requested. The cost for the additional night is $180 plus tax. All changes must be made through Marin as well, the hotel will not accept your changes directly. This information must be provided by September 28th or we risk not being able to guarantee rooms at the host hotel. ALSO! Marin will be the only person contacting you to book rooms. There is a company called Exhibitor Housing Services who likes to sometimes call our exhibitors and pretend they are booking rooms for us. They are not – do NOT book with them!
