See you in February!
We understand planning your travel is challenging now, but we hope that you’ll stick with us during this turbulent time and keep your registration. The Amsterdam Organizing Committee has kindly offered to postpone their meeting to 2022.
Rome in February is just as stunning, less crowded, not too cold, and more affordable than later on in the year! It represents a low season for the hotels and restaurants here and – after the tragic losses they’ve experienced this year – are more delighted than ever to welcome our group.
While our host hotels will stay the same, we are re-evaluating the program details which will be announced later this year. We will also be dedicating efforts to flushing out a “virtual program” for members who cannot or prefer not to travel. These efforts will also be used as a contingency plan in the event something happens and the entire conference must be held virtually. *This is the last time we will consider changing the conference dates.
If you have a reservation at the Hotel Quirinale, they will automatically transfer your reservation to the new dates. If you need to cancel, you can do so at no charge. Simply contact the hotel directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hotel Quirinale has offered new, even more convenient room rates for February:
- double room €110/night
- double room (single use) €100/night
- triple room €145/night
To make a new reservation, contact the hotel directly at email@example.com
Westin + St. Regis
All hotel room reservations at the Westin and St. Regis have been cancelled, and you will need to rebook the new dates. Updated room rates are not yet available. We will communicate them as soon as possible.
Need to Cancel?
For now you may cancel your registration and without any penalty. Please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide a full refund (minus transaction fees).
Private Vatican Visit
If you registered for the optional San Barbato Resort, Spa & Golf Private Vatican Tour + Experience: We have requested availability to reschedule our private tour of the Vatican for Thursday, February 4, 2021, however we have not received confirmation.
The new dates coincide with the annual “dusting” of the Sistine Chapel (Italy problems, right?), so we were advised that the private tour might not be possible. It could be weeks until we have more news.
Pre- or Post-Tour Update
We would still like to organize a Pre- or Post- Trip and will reach out to those members who had originally signed up for the Post-Trip to gauge availability and interest. Given the new time of year, we may need to change the location for the trip to account for seasonal closures.
