Information for on-site and off-site conference lodging rates is located on the Travel & Lodging page of our site. If you wish to stay at the Park Place Hotel (conference venue) please reserve your rooms early.  This hotel tends to sell out by early August. You must call the Park Place Hotel to make your hotel reservation: 231.946.5000.  The historic Park Place Hotel is a Michigan Icon.  The venue offers a personal touch and easy accessibility to downtown Traverse City.  We request that if you are traveling with a group that you consider having participants share rooms when possible in order to include as many conference participants as possible to stay at the conference hotel.

Cancellation Policy

Through July 1, 2015 we are able to offer a full refund of all registration fees paid, minus a $50 cancellation fee. Due to obligated costs on the part of the conference we are unable to refund registration fees after September 16, 2015; however, another individual may be substituted, or the funds may be applied toward the 2016 Lilly Traverse City conference.

Special Needs

An important aspect of the conference is that all participants have the opportunity to participate with as few challenges as possible. If you are in need of accommodations that meet the regulations of the Americans with Disabilities Act, please contact Todd Zakrajsek directly. NOTE: Requests for accommodation must be submitted in writing before registering for the conference and at least 4 weeks prior to start date of conference. Additionally, a confirmation email must be received from the conference director acknowledging the request is required in order to ensure the emailed request was received.

Co-Sponsoring Institutions

If you are a coordinator who is considering bringing a team and co-sponsoring the Lilly Traverse City Conference, please contact Todd Zakrajsek for details before registering for the conference.

Guest Meals Policy

Unfortunately, due to space limitations we do not offer guests to dine with our participants.  Meals and break foods are exclusively offered to registered conference participants.  The Park Place is home of Minervas Restaurant. If you would rather dine outside of the hotel property, Traverse City offers restaurants and cafes within easy walking distance.
