IMCA has reserved a block of rooms at the Hyatt Regency Orlando at the special group rate of $225 single/double per night. This rate includes complimentary in-room Internet and fitness center access. To make your reservation, click here. You may also call 1.800.233.1234 and reference Investment Management Consultants Association. The special rate is available through March 18, 2016, and is available on a first-come, first-served basis, so early reservations are recommended.
In addition, you should know that IMCA has received reports that at least one unofficial housing service—Exhibitors Housing Management—has been contacting exhibitors and attendees claiming to be a partner with IMCA to provide housing services. Be aware that IMCA has not contracted with this organization and does not endorse, support, or warrant their services. The only recommended ways to book your hotel for the upcoming event are outlined above. In the event that you book your hotel room outside the normal IMCA housing block, IMCA will not be able to assist you if your room is unavailable or the “provider” turns out to be a scammer.
Booking a room in the IMCA room block is an important way to support the association and ultimately keep overall meeting costs as low as possible. IMCA commits to a block of rooms at the hotel on behalf of conference attendees and has a financial obligation to fill this block. Please help us to avoid potential penalties and control costs for future events by staying at the official hotel. Staying “within the block” is also more convenient and helps you stay connected with the informal activities and networking opportunities that occur at the hotel during the conference. If you are required to reserve a room through your company’s travel department, please forward the booking link to them so that you can reserve a room in IMCA’s room block.
Please note that conference attendees who do not make their reservation within the IMCA room block may not receive the same discounted rate or benefits.
The Hyatt Regency Orlando is located in the International Drive district, just 12 miles from the Orlando International Airport. A taxi from the airport to the hotel is approximately $34.
