Subj: Important IEEE 802 July 2004 Plenary Session Updates
An On Site Web Portal is available for all attendees of the IEEE 802 July 2004 Plenary Session. Please bookmark this website and check it daily for any updates. The latest Agenda, the List of Tutorials & Call for Interests, Hotel Floor Plans, and "Items of Breaking News" will all be posted at:
Due to the necessity of holding meetings at both the Portland Hilton and the Embassy Suites for this Plenary Session, we have arranged for a shuttle to run between the two properties on a continuous basis. The shuttle will run from 8 am until 10pm on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. On Friday it will run from 8am until 7pm. On Wednesday, the shuttle will run between the Hilton and Embassy Suites from 8am until 6:30pm with additional transportation from both hotels to the social starting at 6pm. Additional information on the shuttle, as well as other public transportation options is on the IEEE 802 On-Site Website.
The Portland Hilton, the Embassy Suites, and the Heathman were ALL SOLD OUT. However, both the Hilton and the Embassy Suites have had some late cancellations. If you don't have a room reserved yet, or if you have your name on an IEEE 802 Wait-List, please contact the Portland Hilton (503-226-1611) and/or the Embassy Suites (503-279-9000) to check for current availability.
Because July is High Season in Portland and there are now very few rooms available downtown, the Portland Oregon Visitors Association (POVA) has provided the link below, which contains information on many local hotels and gives you the ability to make room reservations via the web. Please note that IEEE 802 HAS NOT confirmed group rates at these additional locations, however many will still offer corporate or web discount rates if available. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact Face to Face Events, Inc. at 408-241-8906 or send an e-mail to: email@example.com
