Accommodations - Room rate EXTENDED until August 15!
The conference room rate is $205 S/D with in-room complimentary local calls and Internet connection. Call Westin Reservations at 888-627-8385 or make an online reservation. Identify yourself as an Advanced Pension Conference attendee to receive the group rate. The hotel will hold these rooms until August 15 only. Make your reservations early, as the hotel expects an early sell-out due to overlapping citywide conventions.

Facilities Surcharge
The discounted room rate we negotiated with the host hotel is based on the total number of anticipated sleeping rooms and meeting space booked. If you stay at another hotel, FIS is held accountable. That means FIS will pay attrition penalties for the rooms not utilized, which could ultimately increase the registration fees for everyone. To minimize potential penalties, an additional $250 facilities surcharge will be assessed for anyone not staying at the event host hotel. If the $250 facilities surcharge is not paid when you register, we will invoice the amount after the event.

*Please note: The facilities surcharge does NOT apply to attendees living within a 50-mile radius of the conference location. Multiple attendees staying the same room are not subject to the facilities surcharge, provided each attendee’s name is listed on the hotel reservation.
