waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the Choctawhatchee Bay. The resort offers everything you can imagine
to make your stay perfect.

that suits you best. All convention sessions and most activities are located in The Village, which
offers the only lodging within walking distance. If you would rather stay in a different area, the
complimentary tram and water taxi provide free transportation to The Village, but waits can be long

ECVC and the Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort have a contractual agreement in which the Alabama and Georgia veterinary medical associations have guaranteed to occupy an allotment of premium rooms (convenient to the conference facilities, beach, etc.) in order to ensure significant group pricing discounts. ECVC has taken considerable financial risk (and will incur a substantial financial penalty if the block is not filled) in order to guarantee the availability of these rooms and enhance your convention experience. We hope you take advantage of the special ECVC group discounted rates. Room rates include parking and other resort fees.
