The Schaumburg Renaissance Hotel, host lodging facility for the 79th Anniversary Convention of the Central States Numismatic Society, is on the verge of being sold out over two of the event nights, according to Patricia Foley, CSNS secretary and bourse chairman for the 300+ booth event.
Booth holder move-in, the Early Bird period and opening of public hours will be on Wednesday, April 25. Public hours will continue Thursday through Saturday, concluding on April 28. Heritage Signature Sales for both rare coins and currency will take place Wednesday through Friday.
Foley said of lodging availability, “The Renaissance Schaumburg is a very popular venue for corporate meetings, and we will not be the only event in the hotel and convention center over our dates. Thursday and Friday already have just a handful of rooms still available, and Wednesday is not far behind. Especially because we offer our booth holders a $175 rebate for stays of three or more nights under our room block at our $159 rate, I want to make certain that everyone is aware of the tight lodging situation we’ll be facing this year. I hope that everyone will call the hotel ASAP if they haven’t already. Once the hotel is sold out, it will be sold out, and there will be little we can do to help.”
Foley also added, “Please only reserve what you really need as far as a room is concerned. Overbooking only to cancel later denies space to people who really do want to come and is unfair to everyone.”
To reserve a sleeping room, call the Schaumburg Renaissance at 847-303-4100 and mention “Central States Numismatics 2018” for the discounted $159 event rate.
