I am quite pleased to have widespread participation for the upcoming conference on contracts to be held at St. Thomas University in Miami Lakes, Florida. Registration is open on the conference website at www.contractsconference.com. All conference participants, speakers and moderators are required to register for the conference to help defer the costs of meals, shuttles and the like.
Please be aware that the group rate for the hotels must be reserved by January 14, 2014. Hotels in South Florida in February can be pricey, but the conference rate is quite good, so you’ll want to make sure that you reserve early. The conference hotels are Shula's Hotel and Golf Club and the Newport Beachside Resort. There is also a deal for rental cars through enterprise if you are interested. Information on hotel reservation is available on the conference website under the hotels tab. While the conference shuttle is running from Shula’s to the law school, I will look into running a second shuttle to the Newport Beachside resort if there were a substantial number of conference participants staying there. The Newport is a little further from the law school, but as the name connotes, is on the beach.
I look forward to seeing you all in February and will be sending additional information about panels and scheduling out in the near future. If you are not presenting and just want a good conference to attend, the contracts conference has much to offer in terms of topics that will be discussed. I will be posting the program to the list in the near future to give any of you who are on the fence about attending even more incentive.
