Special Savings for Hotel Guests

Due to Hawaii's popularity as a meeting place, its facilities are at a premium during the favored winter months. The costs of the seminar meeting facilities are directly related to the number of participants staying at the seminar meeting hotel(s). As a result, each person attending the seminar can save $350 per week on their seminar fee and receive special low hotel group rates by staying at these hotels, with travel reservations made through Bursch Travel. Also, when you stay at the Hyatt you have the convenience of walking from your room to the meeting and do not have to worry about traffic or parking charges.
