2019 GEMECO Technical Training 


Please join us for GEMECO's 5th Annual Technical Training Event! This year we've added a 5th day of training to our schedule, giving you the maximum value for your travel investment. As always, we strive to make this event extremely convenient. If you plan on traveling by plane, the local Florence airport (FLO) is a short 15 minute drive to the hotel and Civic Center. Renting a car is not necessary; hiring a cab, Lyft or Uber will provide inexpensive transportation to and from the airport.

If you plan on driving to the event, the Hampton Inn and Civic Center are located directly off Route 95 with plenty of free parking at the hotel and Civic Center.

Once in Florence, all events are within walking distance including training, meals and lodging. Nearly all of the training sessions are free to attend and most of the meals will be covered by GEMECO. Guests are required to book and pay for their own lodging.

We have reserved a block of rooms at the Hampton Inn on Radio Drive in Florence at a special rate of $104 per night (standard room, including breakfast). Rooms can be booked directly on the Florence Hampton Inn website CLICK HERE Select 'Add Special Rate Code' and enter group code 'G19' or by calling the hotel directly via 843-629-9900, extension 0 and provide the front desk staff with Gemeco group code G19
