2019 M3 Pre-Conference

Add a Pre-Conference Workshop session to your M3 Conference experience!

Back by popular demand! We will once again offer Pre-Conference Workshop sessions that you can add to your main conference registration. These sessions are optional and additional fees apply. There will be 3 morning workshop sessions and 3 afternoon workshop sessions that will take place on Friday, February 22, 2019, before the main conference begins. Please see below for more information.

Date:
Friday, February 22, 2019

Time:
9am-12pm and 1pm-4pm

Location:
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel (next to Lakewood Church)
6 E Greenway Plaza
Houston, Texas 77046

Cost:
$40 per person, per workshop.
Fee includes workshop admission and self-parking voucher for hotel parking.
You can choose up to one morning session workshop and one afternoon session workshop.

Capacity:
Space is limited to 100 people per workshop.

Lunch Options:
Between Pre-Conference Workshop sessions from 12 p.m.-1 p.m., you will have time to have lunch on your own. The DoubleTree by Hilton hotel has an in-house restaurant, as well as a Starbucks coffee shop, and there are also several restaurant options within the Greenway Plaza “Hub” food court area, which is connected to the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel. If you need help finding these locations, please ask a Pre-Conference Workshop volunteer (they will be wearing bright green M3 Conference t-shirts) or a hotel staff member, and they will be happy to assist you.

Parking Information:

  • Pre-Conference Workshop parking will be located at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel at 6 E Greenway Plaza, Houston, Texas 77046.
  • Upon arriving at the hotel, please follow signs for “self-parking” or ask a valet attendant for directions on how to access the self-parking garage.
  • Upon check-in, you will receive a self-parking voucher to cover the cost of parking.
  • The hotel also offers valet parking, but that option is at your own expense and not included in your registration fee.
  • Once you park for the Pre-Conference Workshop, you may leave your car in the hotel garage until the end of the main conference, which ends at 10:30 p.m. that Friday evening.
  • The main conference is located at Lakewood Church, next to the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, and is only a short, covered walk from the hotel.
