Registration Fees and Deadlines

  • DEPOSIT PER BOOTH: $500 (non-refundable)


LeadingAge California has reserved a block of rooms at the Portola Hotel & Spa at negotiated rates. Reservations will be accepted after January 31, 2017.


As the date of an event draws closer, exhibitors and attendees are from time to time subjected to improper solicitation from individuals, unaffiliated hotels or third-party housing agencies. It has come to my attention that this type of activity is occurring in regards to our upcoming conference. If you are contacted by someone creating an urgency for you to book a room and ask for credit card information while on the phone, DO NOT give this information out.

The Portola Hotel & Spa is the only official LeadingAge California host hotel and they will never contact you to make a reservation. Only reserve rooms through your trusted meeting planner or secure hotel reservation link provided by the meeting planner. Any offers from individuals, other hotels and/or housing agencies are not endorsed by LeadingAge California. If you are ever unsure whether or not something is legitimate, contact us first before providing your personal, company or any other financial information.
