2020 Conference Payment Plan FAQ’s

How does the flight portion of the conference package work? What if I want to fly in early or leave late?

Someone from staff will be in direct contact with you about 90 days before conference to book your flights. As long as there aren't exorbitant differences in fare, flying in and out of Ft. Lauderdale, (or even an alternative airport), before or after conference could be possible.

Will there be an option to pick the room type I would like? Can I pay more for a Beach/Pool view? 

Unfortunately, rooms will be assigned at the discretion of the hotel based on arrival time and availability.

There is a $35 a night per room Resort Fee. Is this included in the conference package? 

It is not, however, the fee will not be required for conference attendees. If desired, the hotel will offer this package as an optional add-on at check-in.

I want to know more about the Resort Fee. Where can I learn more?

Information about the resort fee can be found here.

If I purchase the single payment plan, can I have a non-conference attendee stay in my room?

Yes, if you have a single, you are welcome to add another guest. However, if they plan to attend the conference, they must also register as an attendee.

I’m within driving distance of the conference and/or don’t want to purchase airfare. Will there be a package option for Hotel/Conference only? 

Packages excluding airfare are available for the 12-month payment plan on the same registration site. Conference-only options will not be available on a payment plan, but will be live on the registration site starting in February.

Are there discounts for parking at the Marriott property in Ft. Lauderdale?

Attendees receive a 15% discount on self-parking.

I have kids who won’t be attending the conference, but will need airfare and will be staying in the room. What is the best way to book my payment plan?

We would recommend signing up for payment plans based on the number of adult conference attendees, and then adding-on the cost of the airfare for non-attendees when flights are booked.
