What is the commuter surcharge?
The Commuter Surcharge of $175 is a one-time (per person) fee for those who are NOT staying at the convention hotel. If you choose to not stay at the Rosen Plaza Hotel, you must pay this fee. This fee is in respect for the complimentary meeting space that ABHE receives based on the number of convention attendees and reflected in a commensurate number of sleeping rooms. Only those who live in the Orlando area and thus are commuting locally are exempt from this surcharge. Thank you for respecting this arrangement with our convention host hotel and our contractual obligations.
