All scent diffusers in public spaces at the Tampa Marriott Waterside will be turned off for the duration of our events. While the venue offers feather-free and ADA-accessible rooms, they unfortunately are not able to offer fragrance-free rooms at this time.
Service animals are always permitted at the venue. Please indicate on your registration form if you anticipate bringing a service animal to the conference and we will follow up with more information.
