PDC 2019

Hotel Information

You can now begin booking for hotel rooms for Professional Development Conference.  Below you will find the links to book your rooms online at the Holiday Inn – City Centre or Four Points by Sheraton. These rooms must be booked by November 2nd to receive the group rate. You may book a room at another hotel, bed & breakfast or AirBnB of your choice, but only rates of up to $119 + taxes/fees will be reimbursed.  If you are booking a room outside of the Holiday Inn or Four Points, check to see if they offer a Purdue rate.  Please make sure you keep your email confirmation for your hotel room.  If you do not get one, check your spam folder, or contact the hotel.

The block of rooms is full at the Holiday Inn – City Centre, however, you can call and book a room outside of block, and ask for the Purdue rate.

When booking your hotel room, please use your Purdue Travel Card. Rooms should be booked as double occupancy; when booking a double room, only one person needs to make the reservation.  If you book a single room, you will be responsible for half of the room charges.  This year, you do not need permission to book a single room.  If you would like to book a double room, but need a roommate, please let me know.


Parking passes for the Grant Street Parking Garage will be provided at the registration table.
