NOTE: When reservations are made, a deposit will be required equal to the room rate and tax for the first and last night for each reservation. An individual's deposit is refundable to that individual if the Resort receives notice of an individual's cancellation at least 14 days prior to scheduled arrival.

Attendees are strongly encouraged to book at the conference hotel, Grand Wailea, in order to avoid falling into attrition (penalty for not fulfilling the number of rooms blocked for our event).
