We work closely with Pellucid Travel to not only source the best hotels, but contract with a variety of hotels to fit all accommodations. We request to work with a wide variety of lodging partners in order to also secure excellent rates for all of our teams. In order to achieve this, we have a Stay to Play policy so that the hotels, cities, and counties are assured that the discounts they offer are used. We work closely with our lodging partners to track team reservations and the stay to play policy as well as ensure that there are enough rooms for all teams attending the event.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email Pellucid firstname.lastname@example.org . We will make sure that your teams are taken care of and in the best fit.
