Book your SSDP2019 conference travel this week

Share This!

Now that you’re psyched about our keynote speakers, and plenaries, the next step is to make plans to get yourself to SSDP2019: The Global Students for Sensible Drug Policy Conference!

The cheapest flights are typically available 7-8 weeks in advance of your travel date. If you’re traveling by air to the conference, that means this week is the best time to book your flight.

Be sure to fly into O’Hare International Airport (airport code: ORD), and *not* into Chicago Midway International Airport (MDW). The conference venue is about a 5-minute drive away from O’Hare, and a free shuttle is provided by the hotel. By comparison, Midway is about a 40-50 minute drive, and there is no shuttle service.

Now is also a great time to book your hotel room.

A block of hotel rooms has been reserved at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare Hotel and Conference Center for March 29-April 1 (our discounted rate is also available for 2 days before and after those dates, as long as rooms are available). The special room rate of $124 per night will be available until March 6 or until the group block is sold out, whichever comes first!

To take advantage of the discounted rate, book your room online here.

You will be redirected and sometimes the group code does not auto-populate. It’s very important that you make sure that “PGF” appears in the “Group Code” box when selecting your room. If it does not automatically appear, you will need to enter it yourself.

Please book your room only through this link, with our group code “PGF”, and not via phone or third-party websites.

Check out our Get There and Travel pages on the SSDP2019 website for lots more details.  

And finally, if you are a student, you can use your CAT points in exchange for discounted or free registration and lodging! Please contact your SSDP staff member (Elise Szabo ‘14 and Luis Montoya ‘16 for U.S. students, Jake Agliata ‘11 for students from all other countries) to make these arrangements soon.

Can’t wait to
