Reservation policies

Reservations at the Raleigh Marriott City Center, Sheraton Raleigh Hotel and Residence Inn Raleigh Downtown require purchase of one ticket or registration (Bluegrass Ramble not included).

The Raleigh Marriott City Center and Residence Inn Raleigh Downtown will charge a non-refundable deposit for the first night, plus tax. Additionally, the Marriott will require a three-night minimum stay. IBMA instituted these policies due to a high number of last-minute cancellations that put the organization at financial risk and prevented many attendees from reserving rooms in these hotels.  For questions about the policy, email info@ibma.org.

 

Camping options

North Carolina State Fairgrounds camping
Located approximately 15 minutes from the IBMA event campus, the fairgrounds offer full hookups (water, sewer, 50-amp electric access), plus complimentary Wi-Fi access. To make a reservation, please email Claudine Davis at claudine.davis@ncagr.gov and note “IBMA WOB 2018 RV” in the subject line. Ms. Davis will follow up with you to confirm details. Rates are $30 per night. Get more details

Due to multiple ongoing construction projects in downtown Raleigh, we are unable to offer downtown RV camping as an option.
