We recommend you stay at Bally’s Las Vegas in the Indigo Tower since the event will be held in the the Indigo Tower. We have not blocked rooms for this conference. We found based on past seminars in Las Vegas that room rates fluctuate. The rate we would obtain for a group rate could rise or fall any time before the seminar. We recommend you go to www.caesars.com/ballys-las-vegas to book direct with Bally’s Las Vegas or call (702) 967 -4111.
We have found that you may find better hotel rates if you utilize one of the national online travel vendors. If you combine your airline rate and hotel by using one of the national travel online vendors you can save even more! We recommend you check these rates before booking your hotel and airline. The sooner you book the better rates you will receive. If you are stay at Bally’s Las Vegas or any hotel on the Strip there will probably be a resort fee of around $30 per day. The resort fee usually includes free in room internet, fitness center access, and local calls.
