Book Your SALC Hotel Room Today
Registration for the 2023 IES Street & Area Lighting Conference will be opening soon . You can get ahead of the game by booking your hotel room today at the host hotel , the JW Marriott Indianapolis .
IES Street & Area Lighting Conference offers this list of reasons to stay at its host hotel :
Convenience : The JW Marriott Indianapolis is the center of the SALC activities . That means it is a quick elevator trip to get to all of the sessions and provides additional opportunities for networking with other conference attendees .
Costs Savings : At just $ 229 per room night , IES works to get the lowest room rate possible for all of our attendees . Staying off-site can also mean several Uber trips back and forth — that adds up pretty quickly !
Time : Zero commute , zero waiting for your car to arrive , and zero time finding parking . That ’ s all time better spent connecting with other attendees and making it to the next session in time to grab a quick coffee !
Focus : We all know the work never stops ( even while we ’ re at the Street & Area Lighting Conference learning and networking ), but staying on-site , you ’ re less likely to be distracted by other priorities and can focus on just the conference .
Recharge : Sometimes you just need a few moments of quiet . Sneaking to your room for a quick break from the action is easier when it ’ s just an elevator ride away !
