BSI World Bromeliad Convention
(May 29th - June 3rd)

San Diego, California



                          Warm greetings from the San Diego Bromeliad Society!


As you may already know we are hosting the 2018 World Bromeliad Conference. This will be the third WBC that will be held in San Diego, California.

We are eagerly looking forward to seeing you in our historic city—Juan Cabrillo landed here in 1514, only 22 years after Columbus made his voyage to the new world.  

Registration for the 2018 conference, May 29 to June 3 has already begun.  The reason for this letter is to call your attention the February 28, 2017 deadline for a discounted registration fee.  If you register prior to March 1, your cost will be $350.  After that date the price increases to $390 March 1, 2017 -- May 1, 2018.   All registrations after May 1st, 2018 will be at the door at the rate of $425.00.

The site of the conference will be the Paradise Point Resort, situated near downtown San Diego on Mission Bay.  The hotel sets on 42 acres of subtropical landscape, with views of the harbor, the bay, and the Pacific Ocean, and all rooms are on ground level.  The rate for the hotel is $184 + taxes for double occupancy.  Please feel free to duplicate the attached registration page to hand out at your society meetings.

For all persons staying at Paradise Point we have planned extra tours and activities during the conference.

Come join us in 2018, not only for the conference with its show, sale, speakers, tours, dinner and auction, but also the San Diego experience.
