A separate reservation will guarantee your room, with no need to check out, as the city regularly sells out with room rates at a premium over this exciting weekend. A limited number of rooms are available until March 15, 2023 or until the dedicated ICD room block of 30 rooms is sold out. Note that the special ICD conference rate is unable to be extended.
