Accommodation and Transportation
IMPORTANT: READ THIS FIRST.
1) If you haven't book the shuttle service yet (round trip between SLC airport and Snowbird) and you plan to do so, you should NOT book the shuttle service while booking your lodging using the special code ACM614 (which shows only the standard shuttle rate at $72 per person). Instead, to get the discount shuttle rate at $38 per person, you should do one of the followings:
- A. Send an email to email@example.com with your name, a credit card information for payment, the flight details in/out of SLC (arrival and departure time and flight number), and the number of people traveling together with you and need the shuttle service. You do need to have a confirmed lodging reservation with the ACM/SIGMOD group (i.e., do the lodging reservation with the code ACM614 first but DON'T book the shuttle service through the hotel booking site). You also need to clearly state that you are with the ACM/SIGMOD group in your email.
- B. Or, you can call the number 800-453-3000 and supply the above information.
2) If you HAVE ALREADY booked the shuttle service at the standard rate $72 per person, you need to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the number 800-453-3000 to ask for a refund of the price difference between the standard rate and the conference discount rate ($72-$38=$34 per person). You need to state that you are with the ACM/SIGMOD group.
3) Parking is free for SIGMOD attendees at Snowbird if you plan to come with your own vehicle or a rental car.
