What are the hotel room rates?

Is there a more inexpensive way to travel into SC?

If it’s cheaper for you to fly into the Charlotte-Douglass International Airport (CLT) which is just 75 miles from Greenville, we have arranged a shuttle option for you through SouthEast Transportation Services.  They will be handling ALL scheduling of transportation vans from CLT to the Hyatt Regency in downtown Greenville.  The shuttles will be comprised of Allume attendees only, and the price will be based upon a rate of $200 per van of 10 people. (You don’t have to gather a group of 10, but they will keep track of that when you call to reserve.)  You will have until October 11, 2013 to reserve a spot on one of these shuttles.  To make your reservation, call Cathey Wood with SouthEast Transportation at 864-877-2111. Monday -Friday.  Make sure you let her know you are with the Allume Conference when you give them your information.  Please know that this is an outside service, not associated with Allume, but simply providing an alternate option to attendees.
