Hotel & Travel
You are responsible for your travel to and from Washington, DC; however, we will cover your one-night shared hotel room for the night of September 27, 2017 at the Omni Shoreham. Some exceptions may be made with prior approval when travel requires an earlier arrival or later departure.
If you are able to pay for your hotel room, please let us know during the application process so that we may help other attendees in need of assistance. The room costs are $255 single or double per night.
We don't want costs to be a barrier for your attendance. We offer a limited number of scholarships for those requiring travel assistance to attend the Summit.
