Hotel Rates

In order to ensure the best possible rates, the National ESEA Conference contracts several years in advance of each conference for the necessary hotel rooms offered. Part of the contract requirement is that the Conference prepays for all rooms at the contracted rate plus mandated taxes and tourism assessment fees. The rates available to attendees and exhibitors are based on the contract rate combined with those prepaid taxes and tourism fees. The conference does not charge taxes or fees on hotel reservations, but the breakdown of how much of the flat rate is attributed to prepaid taxes and fees is itemized on the invoice for transparency.
