The most impressive feature of the Marriott, however, is the incredible conference space at our disposal. The Marriott boasts over 11,000 square feet of total conference space, and we will be utilizing three breakout salons – A, B, and C – for our workshop and paper sessions. Each room is 620 sq. feet and can hold 50 delegates in a classroom setting. Our vendor hall will reside in the Grand Ballroom, which is an exceptional 6,340 sq. feet with 16-foot ceilings. All rooms have isolated power infrastructures and wired internet capabilities. The Marriott also has two loading areas for vendors, a large foyer for reception and registration, and an additional 1,600 sq. foot ballroom for lunches and SEPA business meetings.
We have locked down a price of $130/night, with single and double occupancy. Each room will include two full buffet tickets for the Bistro 1501 restaurant on the first floor, a $40 value per day! By including these breakfasts, the Marriott has helped to reach our goal of providing every single meal for delegates during the conference. For lunch on Thursday, we’ll sample the Marriott’s award-winning cuisine, some of the best in all of Central Florida according to guests and critics alike.
The hotel provides a complimentary shuttle between the hotel and Orlando Sanford International Airport. Please contact the hotel concierge or front desk for more information. (Please note that Orlando Sanford is a regional airport, not the major Orlando airport).
