Hosted meals include a welcome reception on Friday, January 12, and a dinner following the PROTOTYPE performance of Fellow Travelers on Sunday, January 14.

After several years of creating partnerships with hotels to help our attendees get the best rates, we have found that individuals are often able to secure more options in January on their own. Below are a few nearby hotels that we can recommend, and your best time to book for the lowest rates is usually late October to early December.
