About the venue and room booking
The organizers of the BEM 2020 are pleased to partner with the Ballast Hotel, part of the Hilton Hotel brand. The Ballast was recently renovated and is one of Wilmington's longest-running hotels, in a river-front location that is central to the dining and entertainment districts of downtown Wilmington.
The financial success of every Benthic Ecology Meeting is linked to the booking of room blocks that organizers secure with their venues. The BEM 2020 organizing committee encourages every registrant to take advantage of the deeply discounted room rates that the Hotel Ballast has put together specifically for us: $129/night double occupancy.
There will be a $10 charge per additional guest up to 4 total.
Rates do not include 13% hotel tax.
Please show support for the good health of our annual meetings by booking rooms at the Hotel Ballast!
There are a limited number of rooms at the Hotel Ballast, so please book when you register!
NOTE: The cut-off date to reserve rooms at the special discounted rate is Friday, 6 March 2020 !!
