Plan to kick back and relax by the pool during INRoadCon23. Any other time, say for receptions, parties and dinner outings, you may want to consider resort casual.

YES! Spouses and guests are welcome at every convention session. And don’t forget to let us know if they need documentation for professional development hours, too!

We’re submitting the convention education hours (12) to ACEC-IN. Please request a PDH certificate when you register.

INRoadCon23 will be only the second group to find a convention home at The Westin Beach Resort at Frenchman’s Reef since the devastating hurricane season of 2017. Recovery efforts stalled in 2020 due to COVID 19. We will essentially be entering a brand new resort, with an island community that is THRILLED to have the property back online. We’ll keep you posted on any relevant construction updates.

We understand that sometimes life throws you curve balls. If you are unable to attend, you’ll certainly be missed.

PLEASE DO NOT CANCEL YOUR HOTEL RESERVATION THROUGH THE HOTEL. WE NEED TO KEEP YOUR ROOM IN OUR BLOCK.
