10% Off in Value Season

As the Conference Planner, one of the things that's on your mind is, "How much is this going to cost?" Understandable. If your retreat dates are flexible, consider what we call a Value Season weekend, or a midweek retreat. Mid week groups get an automatic 10% off. Combine that with a Value Season discount (Nov 15-Jan 31) and get a total of 20% off. You'll be a hero.
