2020 Peer Group Conference
The base conference fee ($885) includes conference programming (key note speakers, education sessions), materials, meals, refreshment breaks, and 4 nights of lodging (Mon-Thu). The PTO showcase and Business Appointment Marketplace (BAM) is an extra charge ($1750), but only one representative from each organization needs to pay it.
If you need to arrive early or stay longer, conference attendees can take advantage of our special room rate of $90+ per night ($103.93 inclusive) at the conference venue - the Hilton Garden Inn in Independence - when you include it on your registration. HCI will make the reservation and send you the confirmation number.
We'll also arrange your complimentary transports between the Kansas City airport (MCI) and the Hilton Garden Inn in Independence. Just send us your flight itinerary once it is confirmed. It is a 40-minute drive from the airport to the hotel. Complimentary airport transfers are available on the following schedule:
- Sunday, February 23 - All day
- Monday, February 24 - Until 3:30 pm
- Friday, February 28 - Until 11:30 am
Everyone is encouraged to take part in the Monday Sightseeing Tour. There is no charge for it, but you must register to participate. You will meet in the lobby at 7:50 am on February 24, 2020. The tour departs at 8 am and returns at 1 pm. It includes lunch.
This year the conference schedule is quite different than it has been for the past several years. We have moved all of the PTO Showcases to Tuesday before the first Business Appointment Marketplace. You will have a single 30-minute presentation to all of the bankers at one time.
