Time's running out to save up to $100 nightly on your hotel stay during the 2016 LION Summit. Friday, Aug. 26, is the deadline to get our discount at the Best Western Grant Park Hotel.
(Note — you can only get the special LION discount rate of $174 for single rooms and $184 for double/double rooms by calling them at (800) 472-6875 or (312) 922-2900.)
The deadline has been extended by a week — it had been Aug. 19. If you'd like to explore other accommodations, we have several neighboring hotels listed on the map in the conference section of our website.
If you haven't yet signed up for the 2016 LION Summit, do it today and save money — early bird registration ends soon. It'll still be a tremendous value after that, but why not add your name to the list of attendees while it's still a screaming deal?
Join the dozens of your fellow Local Independent Online News Publishers who will gather in Chicago, Sept. 29-Oct. 1, to share their experiences and celebrate our growing organization.
The conference is coming up quickly — things kick off with a reception and discussion on Thursday, Sept. 29, with two full days packed with learning and networking to follow.
We're still adding speakers to the schedule, but have sessions planned with concrete tips on growing revenue, expanding reporting, improving your tech stack and making better community connections.
