For 2017, we're being hosted by the awesome Holiday Inn Westshore! Located just two miles from the Tampa International Airport, the Holiday Inn Westshore boasts ample space, a state of the art fitness center, pool, spa, free internet access in both public spaces and guest rooms, and a beautiful restaurant and lounge. The Holiday Inn Westshore also offers a free shuttle service that will take guests anywhere they need to in a three mile radius. If you're flying in, the hotel also offers a complementary airport to hotel shuttle, and if you're renting a car or driving in, parking is free!
All rooms have a refrigerator, a coffee maker, and either a king bed or two doubles. Maximum capacity for the rooms is four (4) people. Wi-fi in the hotel rooms is free!
For attendees staying at the hotel, there is a $10 full buffet breakfast. Every evening from 5:30pm to 6:30pm, attendees staying at the hotel can join the complimentary Manager's Reception where they can grab a light snack and a drink (alcohol included).
We do have a block of rooms from Wednesday July 5th through Monday July 10th, and the nightly fee will be $109. We highly advocate room sharing, and there will be a database on the official attendee mailing list for people to connect through. The link to the hotel portal will only be made available to registered attendees.
