Re: Conferences in costly locations--thoughts?

That is not necessarily true. The Ritz-Carlton sits out on this sandbar all 
by itself from what I can tell. I have spoken with the Palm Beach Tourism 
folks and they say that there are no other hotel facilities within walking 
distance.  A cab ride to the closest one may fail to offset the savings on 
the room. I opted to share a room with two other people at a Fairfield 
hotel several miles away. One of my roommates was able to convince her 
company to rent a car for her, so we have transport.

When my airfare, meals, registration, post-conference workshop fees, hotel, 
car rental, and sundries are added up, the conference will end up costing 
me over $3500. That doesn't even take into consideration the amount of 
billable hours I lose while attending the conference. But I have been 
planning to attend this conference for two years. I know it will be worth it.
