We're excited to see you in Hartford!

We've had a huge interest in guests arriving early and have already reached our room capacity on our pre-convention days (Friday & Saturday Nights).

But fear not...if you are interested in coming in early, we have a block of rooms at the Hilton at a rate of $175 per night.  It's a great rate at a beautiful property just 5 blocks away.  Even better...when it's time to move from the Hilton to the Marriott on Sunday, we'll provide shuttle/baggage service.

To book a room for your early arrival, please contact Cheryl McShane at cherylm@pecpros.com.

Please note, you will still be responsible for booking your room at the Marriott for the rest of your stay.
