2016 Conference Hotel Booking Instructions

15.06.05-2016.conf.teaser.smWith pricing for 2016 WCTA conference delegates well below peak season winter rates, the WCTA is pleased to announce the Crystal Lodge as its 2016 headquarter hotel along with the Aava Whistler and Delta Suites as partner accommodators.

Realizing Whistler can be more expensive than other conference locations, the WCTA Board placed a high priority on negotiating the best possible room rates.  There is a catch however.  

  • delegates will need to book rooms sooner than they are used to
  • the number of discounted rooms are limited
  • cancellation policies tend to be less flexible

To avoid disappointment, book early, be prepared to place a deposit for the first night’s stay and submit payment for the entire stay 14 days in advance.
