Conference Information


Situated high atop the town of Hershey, Pa., the Hotel Hershey is a getaway in itself. This is a place to awaken your senses, soothe your soul, and experience the finest in elegance and service. The Hotel Hershey, Milton Hershey's ultimate expression of grandeur, has been recognized with the prestigious Forbes Four Star and AAA Four-Diamond Awards, and is a member of the Historic Hotels of America.. With the completion of the "Grand Expansion," the hotel added a new recreation area, year-round ice-skating rink, multi-pool swimming complex with an infinity-edge pool, and a 130-seat restaurant. ABI has arranged a special conference rate of $279 per night. Reservations must be made directly with the resort by July 7, 2013, to secure the special rate. Upon payment of the conference registration fees, you will receive hotel reservation information with your conference confirmation. Reservations may be made only once you have registered with ABI. Rooms are held on a first-come, first-served basis. ABI cannot guarantee any rooms after the specially-rated ABI block is filled.

ABI acknowledges that in some instances there will be persons who need to attend an educational seminar for CLE credit who are not able to pay full registration fees. ABI will handle such instances on a case-by-case basis and will work with the individual on alternative solutions. For persons who cannot meet the full registration rate, ABI will offer a reduced rate based on what the individual can reasonably afford to cover the cost of meals and materials. For persons unable to pay a reduced rate, we may allow the individual to work at our registration area for a few hours during attendee check-in, or assist in conference set-up. ABI also has reduced rates for government employees, professors, law clerks and students. For information on tuition assistance, send an e-mail to jdugas@abiworld.org by July 19, 2013.
