The upcoming Large Agents Meeting provides an unparalleled opportunity for large independent agents to meet with your peers and freely exchange ideas, experiences and opinions on issues that affect your business today. The agenda is developed by title agents, for title agents. The discussion flows freely since there are only independent agents in attendance.
This year's meeting will be January 26 – 28, 2015 at the Belmond Charleston Place in Charleston, SC.
Come and join in the discussion of major issues of the day that affect ALTA Members. As always, spouses/guests are most welcome.
A block of sleeping rooms has been reserved at the Belmond Charleston Place at a rate of $225 per night (not including room taxes and fees).Â To make your reservations, please call 800-831-3490 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know you are with the Title Agents Executive Conference (ALTA).Â ALTA's room block is protected until January 7, 2015 so please make your room reservations as soon as possible.Â After that date, rooms will be reserved based solely on availability, and we cannot guarantee this excellent rate.
A first night's deposit must be guaranteed via a major credit card, which will be forfeited if the reservation is canceled less than 72 hours prior to arrival. A failure to cancel the reservation prior to day of arrival will result in a cancellation fee for the full length of stay.
The closest airport to Charleston Place is the Charleston International Airport (CHS). This airport is approximately 12.5 miles from the hotel and heart of downtown Charleston.
ALTA will arrange for any transportation once you have arrived at the hotel, so a rental car won't be needed for this meeting, but if you do want to rent a car, the official car rental company is Avis. To make reservations, call 800-785-1400 and refer to the ALTA discount number D833367 or visit the Avis website and enter the code there.
The average taxi fare from the airport to downtown is approximately $30 before gratuity. The one-way trip takes 15 -20 minutes. Shuttles are also available for $14 per person each way. Taxi and shuttle rides are available in front of the terminal building, outside of baggage claim. All taxi and shuttle services accept MasterCard, American Express, VISA and Discover credit cards.
