Why should I stay at the ILSC Conference hotel?

By staying at the Embassy Suites hotel, you will be in the center of the activity surrounding the conference. It's a quick trip to get to the program and functions, and just as quick to get back to your room for a break. Additionally, staying onsite provides you with easy access to network with your LIA friends and fellow conference attendees.

Beware of hotel housing scams

The Laser Institute of America (LIA) has partnered directly with the hotel listed above. All accommodation bookings should be arranged directly through the hotel. LIA does not endorse or have a relationship with any other housing company or hotels.

VISA Application

We recommend all non-US participants apply for their visas at least 3 months before the conference. However, some consulates may have backlogs in scheduling visa interviews so you should first contact the consulate to find out how long the wait is for an interview. For more information, visit the International Visitors Office.
