I received an email from RootsTech last week. They say they “expect this years’ event to fill up quickly, so please make sure to register early.” Pricing is currently $159 for a 3-day pass, a savings of $80 off the regular price of $239. A discount is available to registered family history consultants of FamilySearch sponsor, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In your regular training email, “My Family History Calling,” is the discount code for a pricing of $99.
If the conference doesn’t fill quickly, the hotels certainly will. The conference is colocated with the 2015 annual conference of the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS). The conference hotels are the Salt Lake Marriott Downtown at City Creek, the Salt Lake Plaza Hotel, the Hilton Salt Lake City Center, and the Radisson Hotel Salt Lake City Downtown. Discount pricing is the same for attendees of RootsTech or FGS. Alternatives to the conference hotels are within the Utah Transit Authority’s free fair zone. Pick hotels near the Trax light rail stops for added convenience. The Little America is just outside the free fair zone, but within walking distance of the free fare Courthouse Station.
