Where to stay during the conference
The Renaissance Hotel is offering conference attendees a huge discount on room rates with a special price of only $149 (plus tax) a night. We encourage you to take advantage of this rate and make accommodations as far in advance as possible as DC hotels tend to book quickly and it will be hard to find another hotel offering this price. To take advantage of this special, call the Renaissance Hotel and mention you are an attendee of the Genocide Intervention Network/Save Darfur Coalition Conference.
**Book fast - the special room rate offered to conference attendees expires March 16th!**
What to wear
We encourage comfortable clothing for the conference that helps other conference attendees get to know more about you. Whether it’s a suit and tie or jeans and your local coalition’s latest t-shirt design, come dressed as the real you and get ready for 2 full days of non-stop training, learning and fun.
For those participating in Monday’s lobby day, please plan on wearing business casual for your meeting on the hill. Please no jeans, sneakers, t-shirts/sweatshirts or sandals.
