Do they still have University in Quebec? I thought the Students shut them all down with the Strikes and Protests

Hehe, apparently yes

It will be complicated for those currently in school but for a new one like me it seems fine.

Deadlines are quickly approaching... there are approximately 2.5 weeks until the hotel's room block expires on August 8th. If you're interested in Fest, mark your calendars and make your reservations!

16 days until the hotel's room block expires. No guarantees on availability or pricing after August 8th!

Our block is currently 54% full and there's always a mad last minute rush - don't delay.

Hi everybody! I posted a deadlines thread that mentions that the hotel's room block and rate expire on August 8th. I can't stress enough how important it is to reserve your room before this deadline. Not only is the hotel expecting to sell out the weekend of Fest (we're sharing the building with another event or two) but the hotel's website is currently quoting $149 per night for Labor Day weekend.

That's right, you get a $50 per night discount for TDIFest!

I know - everyone always waits until the last minute. In 2009 we had over 50 registrations in the three days before Fest. It wasn't really a problem because the Hyatt wasn't anywhere close to being sold out and they kept extending the group rate... this year is different.

Just trying to encourage a change of behavior this year so people don't miss out when it's too late!

Yeah, I know.... I only just got my hotel reservation and confirmation number.
3 more room*nights to the total.
Maybe 4 nights if I can get there early enough.

I'm not sure if I have mentioned it or not, but the hotel doesn't charge your credit card until you check out. So... those of you who are on a budget, go ahead and reserve now - pay later!
