2023 Venue

The Renaissance Esmeralda in Indian Wells, CA

The room rate is $229 + $22 resort fee + tax per night.

The fine print:

Rooms may be booked at the posted conference rate until November 12, 2023, or when the block sells out, whichever is sooner. 

NOTE on 9/7/23: Our block for Wednesday December 13th is full. If you try to book a date range checking out after the 13th you will likely be told there is no availability. There are definitely rooms available for check-in on Sunday and check out Wednesday. 

You may be able to call the hotel to add nights at the current rate. An alternative would be to book at the Hyatt Regency Resort & Spa Indian Wells, which is just across the parking lot. 

Reservations at the Renaissance Esmeralda can be canceled up to 24 hours prior to arrival without penalty. If complete cancellation of an individual reservation takes place within 24 hours of the scheduled arrival, a cancellation fee equal to one (1) night’s room revenue will be charged with the exception of a medical emergency where verification can be provided.

Right here!


What’s the cancellation policy?

Cancellations received via email to by November 17, 2023 will receive a full refund, less a $100 administration fee. Cancellations received via email between November 18-November 30, 2023 will receive a 50% refund. No refunds will be issued after November 30, 2023 (though you may substitute another attendee at any time for no fee).


What’s the dress code?

The entire event is casual. Not business casual. Actual casual. Really! Everyone should wear what makes them comfortable: jeans and a cute top/sweater/sweatshirt, yoga pants and sneakers, etc. I just wouldn't come in shorts, as hotels are typically chilly. How awesome is this? It's like vacation, but at a professional event!
