WASBO Foundation Transportation & Bus Safety Conference

Hotel Accommodations, Registration Rates & Cancellation Policies

Hotel Accommodations

Special conference hotel rates have been negotiated with the Kalahari Resort & Conference Center for Monday through Wednesday nights, February 14 through February 16, 2022. You will be quoted a room rate of $90 for a single, or $134 per night for doubles, triples or quads for Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday nights.

To make your hotel reservations at these discounted rates, contact the Kalahari directly at 877.253.5466 or reserve your room online on or before Saturday, January 14, 2022.  Be sure to ask for the "WASBO Facilities Management Conference 2022" room block. The deposit policy for hotel reservations is one night (plus tax) at the time reservations are made. Hotel cancellations made at least 72 hours prior to arrival receive a full refund less $25 processing fee.  Less than 72 hours prior to scheduled arrival forfeits the entire deposit. 

If you are sales tax exempt in Wisconsin, please be sure to bring BOTH your tax exempt form and a completed Wisconsin S211 and present them when checking in.  Unfortunately, Wisconsin state statute requires the Kalahari to collect sales tax for tax-exempt organizations from out of state.
