THE EUROPE HOTEL ROOM BLOCK

The room block for our 2019 annual meeting at the Europe Hotel in Killarney, Ireland is now open. We are opening the block early due to the heavy demand we anticipate for the rooms. We may be able to add more rooms if the block is sold quickly. Due to the transportation challenges, we strongly recommend that you plan to arrive at the Europe on Tuesday, May 7 and depart on Sunday, May 12.

We will be sending information on a pre-conference trip to Dublin and transportation options to and from Killarney in about 60 days. We recommend that you wait to receive this information before booking your flights.

Please do not delay. Book your room immediately.
You can always make adjustments later if your plans change.

PRE AND POST CONFERENCE TOURS

Our friends at Custom Travel & Cruise have arranged fantastic Pre-and Post-Conference tours for the SSOMS. Space is limited!

SIGN UP HERE.

If you choose not to participate in the pre-conference tour, we recommend that you still plan to arrive on Tuesday. The options are to fly into Shannon (at least one stop on most flights), which is about 1 ½ hours from the hotel or Dublin (direct flights from Atlanta), which is about 3 ½ hours from the hotel. From Dublin, you can travel by car or train. If we have enough people arriving at either or both locations at virtually the same time, we will arrange group transportation to the hotel. Watch for details as we get closer.
