Hotel Reservations - Group Discount Deadline: May 26th, 2017
Choose from traditional hotel rooms, or upgrade your stay to a villa, condo or suite in the location 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 at peak times. The conference is being held in the Baytowne Conference Center.
Daily recreational amenities include free sea kayaks, boogie boards, four hours bike use, one hour tennis, and health club use. The resort has its own marina for wave runners, sailing lessons, and fishing charters. In addition to four 18–hole golf courses, there is a mini-golf course, multiple swimming pools, bike trails, and Jolee Island to explore. Free movies and concerts are offered in The Village, along with shops, snack bars, nightclubs, restaurants, and more. There’s also a free resort shuttle!
IMPORTANT NOTE 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.
