Lodging Commitment
To keep costs as low as possible, the PGRSA makes certain commitments to our host hotels by guaranteeing them a certain number of rooms will be occupied by our attendees. In exchange, the host hotels offer us concessions and other perks. If we fail to meet our room night commitments, we are faced with hefty penalty fees. For this reason, PGRSA will charge a $250 Facilities Usage Fee for those who choose not to stay at the host hotel.
