Please note: Registration for the Summit does not include accommodations and does not guarantee your hotel room. Please register for the event and book your hotel room early as there is a limited number of room rates available through the negotiated discounted room block. The specially discounted rate of $324 plus taxes and fees applies only to the nights of January 27 and 28, 2019. Guests may extend their stay at the Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach up to three nights before and after the Summit event at a discounted rate of $354 plus taxes and fees, but will not receive the Summit discount on those shoulder nights.

In addition, as resort hotels, the Conrad AND the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach levies a daily resort fee of $35 per suite, per night. The resort fee covers:

  • 2 beach chairs and umbrellas
  • 2-hour bike rental
  • 20% off spa services
  • 2 bottles of spring water in room and pool deck
  • Sunrise yoga
  • Local and toll-free calls

This additional charge has been made optional to Summit attendees and can be excluded from your room charges if requested upon check in, on an individual basis. Please contact the Conrad or Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach resort with any questions regarding this fee.
