The process is attendees will place reservations through the Passkey link I will send you. For rooms of 10 or more we ask that they send an email to Housing@ExperienceColumbus.com I will check the inventory for what best fits their request and respond with their hotel choices. Once they confirmed their choice, I will create the room block and send the link for them to place their reservations, again giving them until December 17 at 5pm. All reservations, modifications, and cancellations will be processed through Passkey, the cut off date is January 18th. This is when the hotels will tell us if we can keep accepting reservations or only accept modifications and cancellations for their property. The Passkey Site will remain open until 5 pm on January 31, 2019. HOTEL CANCELLATION: Reservations may be changed or cancelled until 3 business days prior to arrival without penalty. Changes, including shortened stays, and/or cancellations received after 3 business days prior to arrival will assess a one night’s room and tax penalty.
