Ways to Save at Conference
Times are tough and travel expenses can really add up. We understand and want to help you get the most for your money. Here are some ways you can save when planning your trip to Atlanta.
1. Register during the early bird period.
Registration for the 2014 Conference on Volunteering and Service is now open. If you register by 11:59 p.m. ET on Friday, April 25 you can lock in the early bird registration rate, which is up to $150 less than the regular registration rates and $300 less than onsite rates. Early registration is a quick and easy way to save.
If you can't register before the early bird pricing expires, don't worry. You can still save money. Regular registration rates are up to $150 less than onsite registration rates. Register by 11:59 p.m. ET on Friday, June 13 and lock in the regular registration rates.
Check out our registration pricing for more information.
2. Stay at one of our Conference hotels.
For the room nights Saturday, June 14 through Wednesday, June 18 we are offering negotiated discounted rates at five conveniently located hotels. The rates we negotiated are hundreds of dollars less than what you would pay if you made your reservation directly with the hotels. Make sure to make your reservation through the Conference registration system before Friday, May 23.
The five Conference hotels are conveniently located half a mile or less from the Georgia World Congress Center, the Conference site, so you won't need to pay for a taxi.
3. Volunteer at Conference.
The Conference planning team needs help! We have several hundred volunteer shifts available for attendees. If you sign up for one four-hour Conference volunteer shift, we'll give you up to $150 off your registration rate. All you have to do is register under the Conference Volunteer category. You will be asked to sign up for one four-hour Conference volunteer shift in exchange for the registration discount. Check out the Volunteer page and registration rates for more information.
4. Ride MARTA.
MARTA, Atlanta's public transportation system, is a cheaper and greener way to get around Atlanta. One-way trips are approximately $2.50.
