Nights outside the room block (pre-program and post-program), are $169 per night (plus tax) for the sleeping room only and are based on hotel availability. Pre- or post-nights will be charged to your credit card. Please do not make any travel arrangements until your pre/post stay availability has been confirmed by EMBAC.
