Please note the following information regarding lodging:

Due to a number of events in downtown Grand Rapids during the week of the conference (including ArtPrize) there is a very LIMITED number of rooms available at the Amway on MONDAY AND TUESDAY.  There are more than enough rooms available on Wednesday and Thursday. This will impact those who are planning on attending the pre-con programs. We have made arrangements with the following hotels to provide additional rooms for conference attendees on Monday and Tuesday nights. Information on making reservations at the Amway are on the last page of the brochure.

 The Hyatt Place South has a block of 30 rooms for Monday and Tuesday at a rate of $114.00 + tax. This includes breakfast for 2 people.  A shuttle will run to the Amway on Tuesday morning and Tuesday afternoon after the pre-cons. 9.8 miles from the Amway.
