iNACOL Symposium | Travel And Hotel Information

And from the neo-liberals to finish off today.

To view this email as a web page, go here.

Dear Colleagues:

The iNACOL Symposium will run October 28-31, 2019 at the Palm Springs Convention Center. Our annual gathering will bring together more than 3,000 educational leaders and experts from around the world — making it the leading event for advancing powerful, learner-centered experiences and shaping the future of K-12 education through personalized, competency-based learning.

Travel and Hotel Information

iNACOL has negotiated a discounted group rate at area hotels for Symposium attendees. Each of these hotels has a specified reservation deadline for booking your hotel room. Although rooms may still be available after the deadline, the iNACOL group rate will no longer apply.

Group rates are offered for stays up to three days prior to and three days after the Symposium, based on availability at the time of your reservation.

To receive this special group rate, you must make your hotel reservations through the Travel and Lodging page of the iNACOL Symposium website.

Note: The hotels and reservation links shown on the Symposium website are the authorized hotels for the Symposium. Booking hotel rooms through third-party companies does not guarantee you a room in our block.

Share with your colleagues on Twitter:
