Hotel Accommodations

Special conference hotel rates have been negotiated with the Kalahari Resort & Conference Center for Monday through Wednesday nights, February 3-5, 2020. You will be quoted a room rate of $82 for a single, or $129 per night for doubles, triples or quads.

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 January 4, 2020.  Be sure to ask for the "WASBO Facilities Management Conference 2020" 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.
