Hotel Information

We strongly encourage you to stay at one of the host hotels, The Hyatt or The Renaissance, for a number of reasons. We have worked with both properties to ensure conference attendees receive a special rate that is lower than any other available rates for those nights. Besides the preferred rates, both of the hotels are very close to the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center – one on each end of the center. Filling these room blocks is part of the contract that allows WACAC to keep conference registration costs lower for our attendees.
