HASTAC Conference venue update

 

As you may have heard, Hurricane Irma came through Florida September 10th through 11th and severely impacted many areas. Unfortunately, the HASTAC conference hotel was among the properties sustaining damage and they will no longer be able to be the host hotel.

Therefore, we wanted to update you on the change in the meeting venue and hotel accommodations.

Meeting Space
The conference venue is being moved to the University of Central Florida main campus in east Orlando. We will be finalizing the locations of the meeting rooms on campus over the coming week and will update the program accordingly. We will send out notification of the updated program when it is available. Some of the times of the sessions may change slightly to allow for movement between sessions.

Hotels
For those of you with downtown Marriott hotel conference reservations, your reservations are being automatically moved to Marriott properties near the campus based on the room-type that you booked. Your confirmation number will remain the same and you will be receiving a new confirmation email from the hotel so that you know your new hotel location.

For those with hotel reservations at other downtown properties, we will be posting hotel and rate information for nearby campus hotels this week. We are sorry for any inconvenience in moving your reservations.

As soon as we have a new link for hotel reservations at the Marriott properties and other hotel locations nearby, we will be posting them to the website.
