What’s the dress code at The Homestead? During the conference, business casual attire is fine for all conference activities. If you are staying at the Homestead before or after the conference, please note jeans are discouraged in The Great Hall, and in the evening, collared shirt and jacket are required in the Dining Room.
Do I need to make reservations for the spa or other Homestead recreation activities? As a conference registrant, you do not need to make special arrangements for the conference entertainment or other conference activities. However, if you (or your guest) wish to enjoy the spa or any of The Homestead’s recreation activities, advance reservations and appointments are required to ensure preferred times. Please call 800-838-1766.
What about parking? A $5 parking fee is included in the room rate and will be charged to all attendees per day.
Can I extend my stay at The Homestead? Subject to availability, the $159.15 per night rate (includes 10% resort fee, applicable taxes, and parking fee) is available to conference attendees three days before and three days after the 2014 conference dates.
What about meals? Conference and guest registration includes buffet breakfast in the dining room on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday; lunch on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday; and delicious buffet dinners on Monday and Tuesday evenings. Dietary restrictions may be accommodated with advance notice. If you arrive on Sunday, dinner is “on your own.” Should you choose to dine separately in one of the Homestead’s restaurants during the conference, or if you are extending your stay before or after the conference and wish to dine at The Homestead, advance reservations (800-838-1766) are required.
I plan to bring family members. What activities would include them? If you’ve registered your family members as conference guests, then they’re welcome to join you for all conference meals and evening entertainment. When you’re busy with the conference programming, your guests can enjoy all that The Homestead and the surrounding Hot Springs area has to offer.
