HOTEL REGISTRATION AT THE INVERNESS HOTEL & CONVENTION CENTER, ENGLEWOOD, CO
This year, Convention will be held in the Inverness Hotel & Convention Center. The hotel has provided us with our very own hotel reservation webpage online:
Guests can access the registration page from November 15, 2016 to July 5, 2017 to learn more about the event and to book, modify, or cancel a reservation. Through that page, you will receive our special hotel rate for the entire duration of your stay, from three days before the convention all the way until the Wednesday following the end of the convention, so you can stay in town a few extra days to explore Denver and nearby Rocky Mountains. Note: Our group rate of $155 + applicable taxes is guaranteed until July 5, 2017 only; after that, reservations are made on space available and you may have to pay a higher rate. You may still use the reservation page to book, modify, or cancel.
Special Hotel Registration Instructions
Collegiate Business and Music Delegates:
Call IEO at 888.259.1471 to make your hotel reservation. You will be placed with other collegiate delegates.
Others who wish to be assigned a roommate, or who will be rooming with an official Business or Music delegate, make your hotel reservation with IEO at 888.259.1471. Note: If you are not an official delegate, you will be responsible for your portion of the room rate.
All other attendees make reservations directly with the Inverness. You may use the special registration page described above, or if you prefer to make your reservation by telephone, call the Inverness at 303.397.7143 and mention you are attending the Mu Phi Epilson Convention.
Mu Phi Epsilon’s triennial convention attracts more than two hundred attendees, a mix of professional musicians, music educators, music students, and friends and supporters. Your sponsorship of Convention costs will reach these individuals, members of their chapters, and many more through the Convention program’s posting on the fraternity’s website.
Attention chapters! Please consider purchasing an ad in the 2017 Convention program book. It’s an ideal way to honor special chapter members, remember those who’ve passed on, or just celebrate being part of Mu Phi Epsilon. If an ad isn’t within your chapter’s regular budget, consider asking members to sponsor one. An ad in the convention program will spotlight your chapter and help support the convention financially.
Be prepared to purchase your own breakfasts. There is a restaurant in the hotel as well as a coffee bar where you can get a quick breakfast to start your day.
Daily sessions are casual business attire. It's a good idea to bring a sweater or wrap since hotel meeting rooms can sometimes be chilly.The patio and pool will be available during your free time, so don't forget a swimsuit.
Be sure to bring your digital camera. There will be a special convention web page set up for you to download all your photographs during or after the convention.
You are expected to make your own arrangements for transportation between the airport and hotel. We are currently working on negotiating special rates so look for more information about this soon.
All Mu Phi Epsilon members are welcomed at the convention. Non-delegate members are invited to attend sessions, meals and concerts after paying the registration fee. Patrons, relatives, and friends may attend meals, concerts and open sessions.
