PIWG has made arrangements for a block of rooms at the Jupiter Beach Resort venue in Jupiter, FL. The room rate is now $179.00 per night plus applicable taxes for industry, $199.00 per night plus tax for a partial ocean-view room. This rate includes free sleeping room internet. The standard resort fee has been waived. Self-parking is free; overnight valet parking is $15 per night. These rates are also available the weekends before and following the conference. This change is necessitated due to a reduction in rooms committed because of our much reduced attendance. Those who have already confirmed reservations at the lower rate will be honored.

A credit card guarantee or a deposit will be required to secure the room. The room block will be held until October 5, 2018, at which time all unreserved rooms will be returned to the general public. Rooms will then be available on a space available basis at the prevailing rate. Please make your reservations early to ensure the group rate.

To make your reservations, call (800) 228-8810 and request the PIWG block and rates. You can also book online at www.Jupiterbeachresort.com using group code OHAERO1028 to ensure you get the rate.

Conference cancellations must be received in writing by OAI no later than October 10, 2018. Registrants who cancel beyond this date or fail to attend will forfeit the entire fee. For questions, call Carol Cash at (440) 962-3073 or CarolCash@oai.org.
