Hotel Information for 2017 GCC Conference
GCC Conference hotel headquarters for the 2017 Annual Conference will be the Courtyard Houston Medical Center
. This hotel will act as the social/networking nexus for GCC throughout the conference, including a welcome reception for all conference attendees on Tuesday, June 27, and as a gathering place after our evening receptions that will be held nearby on June 28 and June 29. We are arranging to have shuttles between the hotel and MD Anderson each morning, as well as shuttles taking us from MD Anderson to evening reception venues - more information to come.
We have negotiated a rate of $149 USD per night for the GCC Conference, including the pre-meeting. Please reserve your room by June 9, 2017 to secure the conference rate. The deadline sounds like a long way away, but don’t wait! Click HERE
