Newsletter #3 – HOTELS

Dear mentors,

Throughout the weeks I will be sending you important information regarding the regional. Today let’s talk about hotels… We just posted a list of 7 hotels that have agreed to give special pricing for the teams attending the event. Please visit our website, and go to the hotels tab. There you will see a map with the hotels and a link to the Experient website.

Some hotels have a website specially designed for you to register your teams, others don’t. In any case please make sure, if you decide to stay with any of the hotels in the list, to call the hotel so you can get the rates negotiated for FIRST teams. If at any point you have a problem and you are not getting the prices negotiated with FIRST, give Experient a call.


1. There is a finite number of rooms blocked for us in each hotel. First come first served, so be the first!

2. The event is happening in HIGH SEASON for Palm Beach. This means hotel rates will be high, so as soon as you see something you can afford, don’t wait, book it!

Every year it is a challenge to know how many rooms we have left for those teams registering later in the season. In addition, having information of how many rooms you need and when you need them helps us get better options for future events. Please help us by filling this survey once you have done your reservations:
Event Timing: March 2nd-4th, 2017 Event Address: 650 Okeechobee Blvd, West Palm Beach, FL 33401 Contact us at [email protected]


As always, if you need anything, let me know and I’ll be happy to lend a hand if I can.

BTW, don’t forget to send me your team’s picture and a brief bio. I’ll be posting that soon!

All the best,

Sandra Contreras
