The 15th National Conference on Hydrocephalus: HACONNECT will take place on June 28-30, 2018 at the Renaissance Newport Beach in Orange County, California. When booking your hotel, you may find other choices besides the conference hotel where you might be interested in staying. Some of these hotels may also have a lower room rate. However, before you book, we would like for you to consider the benefits of booking at the official conference hotel.

Below are the top reasons why we encourage you to book your accommodations at the hotel where HACONNECT is taking place:

Nearby Attractions and Activities

Orange County, California is a year-round vacation mecca, boasting 42 miles of stunning beaches, world-famous theme parks, designer shopping, delightful fairs and festivals, and so much more. The Irvine Marriott puts you in the center of it all. The conference hotel is just a short 25-minute drive to the world-famous Disneyland Park, Disney’s California Adventure and the always-thrilling Knott’s Berry Farm. Other top attractions include the famous Southern California beaches, Irvine Spectrum, South Coast Plaza, local farmers markets, and world-class golf courses.

Added Networking and Social Time

One of the key reasons people attend conference is to meet and connect with other participants. By staying at the conference hotel, you enhance your opportunities to meet individuals like yourself who share similar situations living with or caring for someone with a neurological condition. It also ensures you don’t miss out on additional activities.
