Travel (By January 18)

Advisor2X will cover two nights standard hotel room at the host hotel for speakers. The two complimentary nights can be 3/18, 3/19, or 3/30.

All speakers should book their own hotel rooms (the only amount charged to your credit card will include any additional nights or any incidentals charged to your room).

How it works:

  • Please book your own hotel room using YOUR NAME (important) as the guest name.
  • When you book, the hotel will place a charge on your credit card for one night’s stay. This is how the hotel ensures that the card used to make the reservation is a valid credit card. That amount will be refunded to your card, so you will see a charge and then a refund.
  • Advisor2X provides a list of speaker names to the hotel. The hotel then credits two nights stay to the rooms associated with that list. (This is why it is critical you book your room under your own name). The only amount you will be charged at check-out are additional charges over and beyond those two room nights (for example, incidentals you charge to your room such as room service or bar tabs, or additional nights beyond two nights.)


How will my room be set up?

All session rooms are set up with a screen, projector, handheld clicker, 6-foot table, and 3 chairs.

Do I need to bring my own laptop?

No, personal laptops are not allowed. Please note when you arrive to your session room, your PowerPoint presentation (if you have chosen to use one) will be on the screen and ready. If you have not chosen to use a PowerPoint, a single slide with your session title and speaker name(s) will be on the screen.

Will I be introduced?

No. We suggest that when your session time begins, you begin your presentation. We suggest you do not spend much time on personal introductions as sessions are only 30 minutes.

Will attendees receive a copy of my PowerPoint?

Yes, unless you opt out which is available when you submit your PowerPoint presentation.

Are sessions recorded?


Will someone monitor my time?

Yes, a monitor will be in the back of the room and will hold up a silent notification that you have ten minutes left in your session and again when you have five minutes left in your session.

When should I arrive in my session room?

Please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the start of your session.

Is my airfare reimbursed?

Speaker compensation includes two nights hotel and complimentary registration to the event. Airfare is not covered. Please note you should book your own hotel room using your own credit card. We provide a list of speakers to the hotel, and they credit two nights stay to your room. The only amount that will get charged to your room is any incidentals you charge to your room as well as any additional nights beyond two.


Please note, hotel rooms cannot be covered at other hotels. Please book your hotel room at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country, under your own name, to ensure two nights are credited to your room.
